The whiskey drinker will never run to vodka for company, though he might dip into scotch in times of despair, because every drink says something about a person’s personality.
And if you don’t have a favorite alcoholic beverage, then you still haven’t mastered the art of drinking.
For the seasoned drinkers, here’s what your favorite liquor says about you:
Whiskey is the drink of the confident person. Regaling people with stories about your life is your favorite past time, and you don’t believe in being just ‘happy high’.
However, when you’re downing the seventh drink, just remember, there is a fine line between confidence and overconfidence, and driving that car is definitely not the right idea.
You are more of a slow drinker, one who enjoys the finer aspects of life. Your accompaniments will never just be plain chakna, your drink will never be directly from the bottle (the horror) and you are perfectly happy in just stating one single quote of wisdom than speak the entire night.
Even when people call you pretentious for knowing the difference between whiskey and scotch, you silently sip your drink and let your looks do the talking.
You are the one who sneaks in their parent’s liquor cabinet and steal a sip because ever since the time your father made you sip brandy on a cold hill station, you couldn’t resist the lure of this alcohol.
You favor the sweeter mixtures and are not a regular drinker, but make sure you don’t tell anyone that Benadryl gives you the same high as Brandy!
You like to chill and you know exactly how to. You don’t want to experience intoxicated falls, though you learnt that the hard way after consuming a whole beer tower on your own.
Just like your favorite beverage, you have the capacity to be really intense, but it takes a couple of hours or a few dozen pints, for that affect to come across. Or it might just be the uncontrollable urge to pee that makes you look intense.
You are the real king of good times. You are often the last man standing, or rather stumbling your way out of a party. You don’t need company to enjoy your favorite drink, and Jagjit Singh is a superhero to you.
Just remember that maybe your best friend does not want to hear your sob story for the twenty-eighth time.
You love sophistication. You want to present an image of style and the glass in your hand is an extension of your personality.
Even though you still Google answers to why a wine glass is only half filled, you know that you can rely on the fifth half-filled wine glass to make your answers interesting.
You are the rare breed. The one who orders a gin and tonic in a crowd of beer drinkers, wine connoisseurs and whiskey lovers. But you are set in your rules and won’t change for the world.
Gin may be a bitter pill, but it is your bitter pill to swallow! Which is how you drink that gin and tonic anyway!
This was the first drink that you tried, when sneaking out with your friends and ditching the tuition class. And that age is what you unknowingly exhibit every time you down a drink or claim for ‘shots’.
But you don’t mind the judgmental stares because while other people start their night at the fifth drink, you are already swaying to silent beats by your second. Happy times are here to stay (till the hangover the next day!)
You are the adventure lover who needs a constant influx of thrill in your life. After all the party hasn’t started till your insides start burning. You maybe coughing out more than what you’re downing in, but you know that your outrageous dance moves are what will truly set the party mode on.
Just be sure that it is your dance moves and not vomit videos that make it to social media the next day, though both can be equally shocking.
You have a sweet tooth that has managed to find the sweetness even in hard drinks, if Jagermeister can even be called a liquor, when traditionally it’s a liqueur.
But you don’t care, just like you don’t care about world news and whatnot. You believe in smiling all the time and having a good time. Here’s hoping those rose tinted glasses don’t come out anytime soon.
You, my friend, have stories from the baba you met during that trek to the traveler from Russia you bumped into in Hampi.
You are a slave to the exotic and believe in the ‘higher’ life. Thus, alcohol is a base desire you don’t always indulge in, but if you have to, then it is with a drink that can help you forget the present and remember the future!
