What Your Favourite Cocktail Says About You


I don’t think there are many better times for having a cocktail than sipping it under the glaring sun, probably on a sun lounger near a pool. However, if you are bereft of both a sun lounger and a pool (sad times), then you’ll just have to make do with the sun, and an eclectically-mixed drink. The only problem though is deciding which drink to have. There are so many to choose from, so what would you pick? And what does it say about you as a person? Well, look no further.

Before you do anything though, you might want to get all your ingredients at the ready. Or at least something stiff to drink. Well, thanks to these Master of Malt voucher codes, you can get your hands on the best whiskies, gins, and rums, as well as everything you need to make the perfect cocktail:


The sophisticated choice, well done. Bet you can’t guess what my favourite drink is? There’s just something about that white rum, soda, and mint, that gives it such a cool, refreshing flavour. You’re probably seen as quite dependable, consistent, but ultimately an afterthought. You’re not normally loud or brash, but you can have you moments.


You love to a good time, and you’re not afraid at the end of the week to let your hair down in one big blowout. You don’t care what anyone thinks, which can be a good trait to have, but you not listening to concerned friends sometimes leads to you sitting on the curb at two AM, crying into a kebab. That said though, you can be the one to pick other friends up, so keep at it.

Sex on the Beach

You’re a bit fruity, aren’t you? Nah, not really, this is probably the most popular choice, because it tastes of nothing but fruit, so it’s like a squash that can get you drunk. Also, you were probably first attracted to trying this because it has a funny, naughty name, which makes you neither funny nor naughty. You’re a bit of a sheep with popular trends, but you’re not bothered about standing out anyway.

Bloody Mary

Most likely in this list to be a nihilist. I mean, who looks at vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce, and thinks ‘yeah, that’d all be good together’. However, you’re not afraid to be different, and that should be respected. Also, you’re probably the most likely to make a dark, disturbing joke at a gathering.


Whether you have it shaken or stirred, you’re only having it to look cool like James Bond. You’re a people pleaser at heart, and you want to be seen doing good to make yourself look better. It’s all about image for you. You probably get all dressed up just to go to the cinema.

Prawn Cocktail

You’re not much of a drinker, are you? That’s fine actually. A prawn cocktail, whilst not the kind of cocktail I was getting at, is a good summer meal. If you picked this, you’re the sort of person that frequently misunderstands things, misremembers names and dates, and says ‘what’ a lot when other people are speaking to you. Also, you could be quite forgetful, so if you ever forget how to make your best ‘cocktail’, then BBC Good Food has you covered.

Make Them Yourself

Has all this cocktail talk given you a hankering for a hiball, a desire for a daiquiri, or a longing for love potion? Well it’s not as difficult as you may think. Well thanks to Steve the Bartender, you’re covered. In this video, he runs down 10 cocktails you can make in 10 minutes. You’ll go from novice to master in no time.
