What your drink says about you!

Your drinks says more about you than your outfit or hairstyle, according to new research released by Illicit Encounters, the UK’s top married dating site. 74% of the 3,000 surveyed members said they could tell more about a person by what they drink than two minutes of small chat. Members were asked to match a personality trait to a list of drinks and the data revealed that 78% of members believe that Champagne is conceited, 58% believe red wine is pretentious, 69% think a Bloody Mary is extroverted, while 64% assume that those who drink a Cosmopolitan are flirtatious.

The study indicates that posher drinks suggest a higher calibre of class. James Bond was on the right track with his choice of spirit, with 72% of members matching the word ‘suave’ to the classic Martini. The cheaper, less sophisticated drinks such as lager are more commonly associated with loudmouths, with 89% relating the word ‘boisterous’ to Beer. We may enjoy our poison of choice – but what does it actually say about our taste, or lack thereof?

Spokesperson for Illicit Encounters Claire Page said “There has always been a social stigma to certain alcoholic drinks. If you think of the typical soccer fan watching a home game at the local stadium, you’d assume he’s got a pint of Fosters in his hand; on the flipside if you consider the drink of choice for a lawyer and his circle of socialites, it’s more likely a bottle of Dom Perignon. It’s a good idea to learn what drink stereotypes are associated with personality traits so you know what to order for a prospective partner, and you don’t offend a classy woman by buying her a pint of Budweiser on your first date!”

The study also found that drinks associated with negative characteristics could only make a person less attractive for 42% of people.
