Do what we drink define us?


I'd like to think it doesn't but I suspect assumptions are made based on drink orders. Even if it is done without realizing it. I remember being in the bar portion of a restaurant and the server was making comments based on the drinks being ordered. I suspect he was trying to be funny but it came across as kind of douchey.

That is very interesting. I think that in some cases there are certain stereotypes that tend to be perpetuated by what we order at the bar. For example my go to drink is a Long Island iced tea. I've had servers call me "bro" or make jokes about the Jersey shore. Meanwhile a gentleman next to me ordered a vodka martini and the server made a James Bond crack. i think things like this have always been there but have been subconscience. Now suddenly it is seemingly appropriate behavior. No idea why.
