    This is such an old article that my opinion may have no value whatsoever, but my rule on first dates back in the day was not to order anything I really loved so I would drink slow and keep my wits about me. While I like lots of mixed drinks, on a first date I always recommend beer or wine--and even then not a favorite because I don't want to down it fast. At parties, I often drink Scotch. I don't hate it, so it isn't like drinking poison, but since I don't much care for it either, I'm not going to want a second, and it will probably last me well over an hour. On a first date, you want to relax, but STAY IN CONTROL. He will have a much higher opinion of you if you do!

    I know how to make a Long Island Iced Tea. How do you make an Adios Motherf*cker??

    A properly made cosmopolitan is a fantastic drink. Trouble being that there are not very many bartenders that give the drink the care that it needs. This is the son of the Margarita and should be treated with such respect.

    Agreed! And maybe have them pick up the tab while they're psychoanalyzing you and being condescending about your drink.

    Order whatever you like. This is a ridiculous article. You don't need to hide your preferences. If they don't like your drink order, you probably shouldn't go on the second date anyway!

    A touch judgmental maybe? Much less sexy than ordering the "wrong drink."

    It would really help if the text of the article wasn't constantly covered by damn ads that can't be closed!!!!
