Top 5 Cocktails Guys Can't Order In Public

You're a man. You like beer. In fact, hurray, beer! But just because you are a virile male doesn't mean that you can't glance over at the girl holding a beverage with a delightful fruit skewer and think, "Gee, that looks fun and refreshing, I'll order that next!" Right? Wrong! There are certain cocktails it would be very hard to get away with ordering in public.

Pink Lady

Gin Grenadine Lemon Egg white

When a man wears a pink polo shirt, he is owning his sexuality. When he orders a pink and frothy cocktail, is he doing the same? That's up for you to decide, as Anvil is currently serving the Pink Lady on its 100 List.

Red Headed Slut

Jägermeister Peach schnapps Splash of cranberry juice

Since this drink contains Jägermeister, a man might think he can order this Jolly Rancher shooter and get away with it. But really, there's no winning with a redheaded slut. The bartender and your date will either think you are a lascivious sex fiend, or that you enjoy schnapps, which most of us haven't seen since we were teenyboppers raiding our parents' cupboards back in 1982.

Sex on the Beach

Despite the name, we've never seen a Sex on the Beach on anything but a Red Lobster menu. So maybe it isn't a good drink for anyone.


Apple vodka Apple schnapps Melon liqueur Sweet and sour mix

Everyone knows that a martini is made with gin, not vodka. So all those neon "tini" drinks are really a misrepresentation. Anyway, if you're drinking an appletini, you might as well go home and cuddle with your maltipoo.


Vodka Triple Sec Lime Juice Cranberry Juice

Thanks to the divas of Sex and the City, you can't drink a Cosmo these days without a side of Jimmy Choos and pillow talk. If you want to be a Mr. Big, it's best not to drink like Carrie.
