Bartenders Revealed The Stereotypes They Assign To Popular Drink Orders, And Y'all, We've Been Called Out

I am feeling a little attacked right now, thanks!

A while ago, we shared some stereotypes that bartenders on Reddit said they associate with certain drinks, and y'all had A LOT to say in the comments.

Well, I rounded up even more of these from bartenders who are also BuzzFeed readers just like you and...they certainly did not hold back. Here are some of the best ones:

1. Gin and Tonic

CBS

"Will talk your ear off whether you like it or not, and after four drinks will take someone inappropriate home."

cazculhane

"On average, they are pleasant and have good taste but they do tend to cry when they have had too many."

2. Vodka Red Bull

Fox

"It means I'll have to keep an eye on you throughout the night, because you're about to act drunk *and* high."

3. Fireball shots

Freeform

"Fireball shots = underage/first-time drinker who can't wait to have an epic hangover story."

4. Stella Artois

Universal Pictures

"The guys who would try to push to the front of the queue and end their night out with a fight were always the guys who ordered a pint of Stella."

5. Moscow Mule

CBC

"There’s a 75% chance you’re about to bitch about it not being in a copper mug. And if it is in one, you will likely steal it."

6. A Hurricane or Sex on the Beach

MTV

"The 20-year-old who slips by because all her friends are 21 and no one looked closely at the ID. Or a Boomer who rarely drinks, but they’re on vacation."

"You drink to forget, but in a ✨fancy✨ way."

8. Drinks with funny names

VH1

"I work at a bourbon bar with an extensive wine list and I only start getting sus when someone orders a drink with a goofy name, like Sex on the Beach. It screams that they're under 21 or don't go out much."

9. Fruity beers

Budweiser

"Fruity beers = girls who want to impress their boyfriends but don't actually like beer."
