10 Cocktails and What They Say About You

Have you ever wondered what your cocktail choices say about your personality? Does your preference for daiquiris over a vodka tonic give clues into your happiness, your cheekiness, your love of life or lack there of?

I’ve always been intrigued by how your cravings, your likes and dislikes and your food preferences can be tied to personality traits, life experience and your brain in general. Someone out there needs to get the bartenders in on a study to see if they can lend insight into how cocktail choices and personalities are connected and what insights and clues it lends to who you are as a person.

  • Beer 11 of 11
    A bonus for those who reach for a beer instead of a cocktail. Beer may mean you're laid back and easygoing, but not if you're a craft beer drinker. These people could be adventurous and discerning.
