Everyone has their favourite tipple, especially one you might specifically order at a bar rather than attempt to make for yourself at home. But what does your bartender really think of your drinks order of choice? A Reddit thread is answering that age-old question, and the truth does not make for pretty reading…

1. Vodka Martini

“These are fancy drunks.” —u/midasvictim

2. IPA

“IPA drinkers are bearded dads who want to ask 15 questions and try 15 samples.”—u/Booji-Boy

3. Tequila shots

“I don’t have work tomorrow.” —u/midasvictim

4. Long Island Iced Tea

“Usually someone who wants to get drunk for cheap and is going to complain that the drink is not strong enough.” —u/CoolHandRK1

5. Fernet

“I spent a year in Europe.” —u/midasvictim

6. Negroni

“Hipster 20-something.” —u/Penholder111

7. Old Fashioned 

“Either someone who knows their booze really well, or not at all, and they want to look sophisticated.” —u/mukkalukka22

8. Cabernet Sauvignon 

“You actually say ‘I’ll have the Cabernet Sauvignon’ and over-pronounce Sauvignon. One fancy wine, please!” —u/PromoPimp

9. Frozen Margarita

“First drink: ‘Omg! I can’t even taste the alcohol.’ A few drinks later: ‘Wowowow I can’t feel my hands!’, then stumbles and falls down.” —u/Tacos4Tech

10. Pimms Cup

“I love England, and English things, and British flags, and rowing. Did I tell you about the time I went to Henley?” —u/Tacos4Tech

What do you think? Have these bartenders hit the nail on the head or are they off the mark? Let us know in the comments.

Meanwhile, a bartender recently shared a video of her $9.28 paycheck to highlight the importance of tipping to those working in the industry.
