Bartenders reveal what customers drink orders say about them


He drinks a whiskey drink, he drinks a vodka drink, he drinks a lager drink, he drinks a cider drink — all fine options, except for one.

“You can tell what type of person someone is by their drink order in specific bars,” Anjali Sharma, a former bartender with eight years of experience from Atlanta, told Business Insider.

And ordering vodka apparently speaks volumes to bartenders.

According to some of the bartenders Business Insider surveyed, if you order vodka drinks, you either look boring or troublesome — or perhaps both.

“Please don’t order vodka,” Emily Doyle, a bartender with 12 years of experience in Ireland, told Business Insider. “You’re nice when you stick with beer, but a demon on spirits.”

“Friends don’t let friends date vodka-soda girls. Basic girls always order them,” Kyle Siegel, a bartender with nine years of experience in Montauk.

Vodka is for people want to f–k up and forget,” an anonymous bartender said.

These feelings of disdain are compounded when the vodka you order comes in the form of expensive shots.

Of course, vodka drinkers needn’t despair. At the end of the day, paying customers who aren’t overly intoxicated will generally get what they order.
