What you order at the bar says a lot about you, but it’s hard to know exactly how your drink is perceived unless you ask. Alcohol.org asked more than 260 current and former American bartenders which drink calls gave them negative opinions of a customer, and you may or may not want to change your go-to.
At your standard bar, the most judged drink order is, by far, the Appletini. A whopping 49 percent of the bartenders surveyed said the fruit fest of a drink makes them think less of the person who orders it. The Kahlua and Coffee brought judgment by 24 percent of bartenders, and 12 percent of bartenders thought unfavorably of people who order Screwdrivers.
But as we all know, it’s not just what you order; it’s where you order it. At restaurant bars, Jägerbombs were the worst, with 40 percent of restaurant bartenders disapproving. That was closely followed by Sex on the Beach (38 percent), light beer (29 percent) and White Russians (17 percent).
