There are a lot of theories about how your choice of alcohol – particularly your choice of cocktail – reflects your personality. Just what can be revealed about your thoughts and habits from looking at what you drink?
It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, bartenders everywhere have observed the commonalities in personality that come with a shared taste in drinks. Here are just some of them.
1. Vodka Soda
Vodka has no sugar or gluten, and is low in calories. If this is what encourages you to drink vodka, you are probably also the kind of person who pays close attention to your diet and exercise regime. Vodka sodas may be the way you have a night out without feeling guilty at the potential damage to your body.
2. Gin Martini
People who order gin martinis do not want dirty martinis. They want their drink, like their lives, to be refined and traditional. Some people say that gin martini drinkers are intellectual and mysterious.
3. Vodka Cranberry
It is not about the flavour with vodka cranberry, but the vivid appearance. Vodka cranberry drinkers are the life of the party. They want to see how much drink is left in their glass. Loud music and drinks for everyone are all part of their night out.
If you prefer your margaritas frozen, you probably like dancing and tacky decorations. If you prefer them on the rocks, you probably enjoy any opportunity to make new friends.
A negroni is a slightly more obscure cocktail and this is reflected in those who drink it. Negroni drinkers tend to be individualists who are experts on topics that others find obscure. However, they do still befriend other negroni drinkers.
Bartenders might not like mojitos because they are complicated to prepare, but mojito drinkers don’t mind that difficulty. Drinking a mojito suggests you are adventurous, well-travelled and ready to tell the story of your exploits.
