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.
007 might have a license to kill, but he doesn’t know the right way to make his favorite drink.
“Hey careful, man! There’s a beverage here!”
Pairs excellently with some fava beans and liver (or so the story goes).
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)
Ron Swanson may be old fashioned, but he sure knows a solid drink order.
If the stereotypes are right, all hipsters love David Lynch and PBR. Coincidence? Hmm?

I noticed that Sidecars played a prominent role in the 1957 movie KISS THEM FOR ME. Of course that movie is about 60 years old, but . . .
I thought it was understood that James Bond orders his drink incorrectly BECAUSE he was uncultured and a "blunt instrument" trying to play the part of a sophisticated gentleman. It was his one "tell" to the character he had created to pass in and out of high society where his potential targets most frequented.
I always loved that about his order, he really knows how to jack up a good martini.
I would add Groundhog Day's Sweet Vermouth with a twist and a toast to World Peace.
I'm surprised Ron Burgundy's Scotch, Scotch, Scotch didn't beat out Ron Swanson but I'll take Scotch anyway I can.
As a final note I thought I ask; who's the Hipster on staff that remembered the line from Blue Velvet?
While I do acknowledge that I am familiar with the connection between drink & famous movie line, I have never felt obliged to try any of them.
I have my standard preferences and see no reason to experiment. Did enough of that in College to last me a lifetime.
FYI: I'm 66 years young.
Think you know the booze? Let’s start with some basics.
