Reader Suggestions: More Asshole Drink Orders


A couple of days ago, Zachary Feldman penned a list of drink orders that tell everyone you’re an asshole. Some examples? Tipples like craft beer or spirits in the wrong kind of bar and novelty shots (except for Jell-O). But a few readers thought he left some of the most asshole-y drinks off.

Says sk1bum:

You forgot a couple of things:

6. Alcohol snobs

7. Any mention of a zombie apocalypse. It’s getting tired.

Adds Berto:

Mojitos, mojitos, mojitos, plus any bastardization (apple-tini, non-lime margie, etc)

And then this from Adam Matza:

I would have to include Long Island Iced Teas.

And other readers took issue with some of Feldman’s picks. Like anononon:

Really, you’re gonna give a pass Jell-o shots because they’re ‘fun’? They’re just as ‘fun’ as any of the other drinks on here, not to mention they’re the frattiest type of frat shot of them all. Hypocrite. The title should be, “5 drink orders that make me think you’re an asshole, because I don’t drink them and I’m judgemental.”

Have other drinks that make you shake your head at the orderer? Or think Feldman’s an asshole for the beverages he listed? Join the lively conversation happening in the comments.
