The 6 Most Influential Drink Orders of All Time

Contributed by

The Dude abides, White Russian in hand.

Be honest. Can you really drink a White Russian without thinking of The Big Lebowski or a Cosmo without picturing the cast of Sex & The City? If you can’t, you’re not alone.

Pop culture’s six most influential drink orders are a revolutionary bunch. Scroll and learn—and let us know in the comments if we missed any.


1. James Bond & The Martini

007 might have a license to kill, but he doesn’t know the right way to make his favorite drink.

2. The Dude & The White Russian

“Hey careful, man! There’s a beverage here!”

3. Hannibal Lector and a Nice Chianti

Pairs excellently with some fava beans and liver (or so the story goes).

4. Sex and the City & The Cosmo

The Cosmo is so intertwined with Carrie and her gang, many viewers assumed the show invented it. Wrong. But an understandable mistake. (Gif courtesy The Huffington Post)

5. Ron Swanson & Single Malt Scotch

Ron Swanson may be old fashioned, but he sure knows a solid drink order.

6. Blue Velvet & Pabst Blue Ribbon

If the stereotypes are right, all hipsters love David Lynch and PBR. Coincidence? Hmm?
