We all have a signature drink, or at least one that we would like to be our signature drink. Your choice of tipple can leave an impression long after you’ve left the bar and is something you may want to pay more attention to. If you’re curious to see what your date is really thinking when you order a drink, read on.
Red wine is something you drink not to get drunk but because you enjoy the taste of wine. It’s also something you drink on a date, and when you want to get romantic. Wine is normal, wine is good, wine is sophisticated. But wine can also be boring and you’re also kind of a snob. If you’re out and going to your neighbourhood bar, it’s possible that you’re not going to find wine you like, or should be drinking so loosen that bow tie and slum it like the locals.

A Moscow Mule, everyone’s latest favourite drink is a good choice because it means you are adventurous but also mysterious.

If you only drink craft beer then you’re a bit of a hipster but we don’t blame you because draught is always better than bottle.
You want to get drunk, but in a classy way. No matter who you ask, they will agree that a martini is a pretty hardcor
