What Your Drink Says About You

What Your Drink Says About You
Mikato Restaurant

Everyone has his or her signature drink. That go-to cocktail that you shout out to the bartender in loud, crowded bars. The smooth blend of alcohols and chaser that go down just right and, based on the amount of you drink, get you perfectly buzzed or have you asking, “what the hell happened last night?” Your drink of choice says a lot about you, and based on my three years of college bar experience, I’ll tell you exactly what it means.

Shots of vodka: I’m a broke college student.

Anything with tequila: I had a rough week and am getting lucky tonight.

Vodka cranberry: I’m a college freshman with a fake I.D., so I need to order something fast, and this is the only drink I know. 

Manhattan/cosmo/martini: I think I’m Carrie Bradshaw in a New York City bar with my girls Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda and clearly have no right being in a college bar.     

Beer: I’m not a regular girl. I’m a cool girl, and I want to show all the guys in the bar how chill I am.      

Rum and coke: I’ve graduated from vodka cocktails to something I kind of like.

Vodka sour: Still a college freshman who will do anything to cover the taste of cheap vodka. 

Whiskey sour: Look at how manly I am. I drink whiskey because that's what my dad and his business partners drink after closing a big deal, and I will attract women with my manliness.

Jack and ginger: If you have the confidence to shout this order out in a crowded college bar, more power to you.

Shots of fireball: I’m a sorority girl jumping up and down with her sisters dancing to “Timber” screaming, “Shots!”     

SoCo lime: Someone offered to buy me a shot, but I don't have a chaser.

Margarita: I need tequila but it is only 3 p.m., so a margarita will have to do.

Bloody Mary: Help. I’m hung over, and the tiny people in my head won’t stop jumping up and down on my brain.      

Mimosa: One word -- brunch. 

Sex on the beach: The bartender is hot and this, followed by a wink, is a very obvious sexual innuendo.

Jager bombs: Look at how much I lifted at the gym today, bro. “Jager bombs!" His face turns bright red as he tips the glass back, chugging it before slamming it down on the bar and letting out a scream of victory.      
Long Island iced tea: I need to be drunk. Fast. Don’t let me text my ex, though. 

Mojito: I wish I wasn’t in a bar with floors my feet stick to, so I will pretend I am on a tropical island.       

Red Bull vodka: I’m a bro who came here to party and wreak havoc.      

Kamakazie: I don’t know what to order when someone buys me a drink, and this is the first thing I blurted out.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
