Ok, personally I have no clue what you (the reader) prefers for a poison. I’m just offering a tip or two of how you (the guys) can create a cool ice breaker with a fetching miss at the bar, just by guessing her drink order. And by drink order I don’t mean beer or Zima®. I’m talking a drink of a mixed nature. Keep the following checklist in mind and you should be able to refill her drink with just a 2% chance of uncertainty.

Swizzle sticks: Palm tree plastic or anything multicolored and it’s probably a foofy drink of some type – rum punch, daiquiri, maybe a margarita. If it's in the straw camp you're looking at more of a subdued liquid refreshment.

Color of leftover liquid in glass with ice:

  • Deep pink or brown = rum
  • Clear = vodka, scotch, gin, etc.
  • Orange = vodka
  • Creamy brown = Kahlua or possibly vodka from a brown/white russian.

Color of leftover liquid in glass with NO ice:
Serious drinking going on. Approach with caution.

Lemon or lime wedge: Kind of a toss up category. Though if I had to make a guess I’d say the lime is usually reserved for the clear drinks. While the lemon wedge is found in more of a cola or fruity type drink. Any other fruit automatically takes you again to foofy cocktail country. Olives? duh.

Napkin or coaster drink is served on: If it’s soaked you’re probably safe assuming it’s a frozen or fruity something. If the napkin is just moist it’s probably one of the 1 to 2 ingredient concoctions. Dry? Again it's the no-ice "approach with caution" scenario.
