The Identity Crisis: Your stereotypical drinker | Beer & Drink | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The Identity Crisis: Your stereotypical drinker

Your stereotypical drinker.


I am often asked if you can tell a person by what they drink, and of course I can.

Rum and Coke? You're laid back and uncreative. You aren't worried about drinking caffeine and sugar until 2 a.m. and you don't care much for ambiance. You usually hang out with one other friend and you'd rather chill at the bar than shake your booty.

Tic Tac?(orange rum dropped into orange juice and red bull) You were born after 1986. You spend a considerable amount of time primping yourself before you leave the house and you always have an entourage. You never drink alone and you have one intention at the bar - to hook up.

Johnnie Walker Blue? Blended Scotch that sells for $25 a pour... You're a man who likes to impress his friends; others find you pompous and a slight bit pretentious. You might have been picked on in grade school but now you drive a luxury sedan.

Beefeater's Gin Martini? You were born before 1940. You don't like sudden change or a lunge for the unexpected. You are fastidious and true and never have more than two.

Absolut Pear and Soda? You're a fit attractive woman who tries to eat organic and gets at least 30 minutes of exercise daily. You are hip and tend to go out with your two close girlfriends.

White wine? Truly depends on the gender. If you are a woman, you are professional and well spoken. You go out to get away from your tedious life with your one of your close friends. If you are a man, you like men. That's all there is to it. You think Barbara Streisand is amazing and you're hoping Santa will bring you a Pomeranian this Christmas.

Can't decide what to drink? You're definitely a woman.
