Ordering drinks gives me social anxiety. Are people going to think I’m an uptight priss if I order white wine at happy hour? Do I need to get a beer to look like a cool girl? Is it embarrassing and college freshman-y if I still like vodka more than any other liquor? Can I order anything that ends with -tini (besides a simple martini, and I don’t think I could order that with a straight face. I’m no Don Draper) without looking like someone who is desperately clinging to 1998 and the early seasons of Sex and the City? Thankfully, someone has created a web app that can help alleviate my apprehension. Drinkify is a simple site that gives you a drink suggestion based on the music around you. You enter what you’re listening to (or you can enter what you’d like to listen to and the site will play it), and it immediately pulls up what should be in your glass.
Here are some examples.
I think the site would be really great if it had a little bit of humor (For example, “Nickelback? We suggest poison”), but over all I think it’s pretty cool. I don’t have super-eclectic taste, but I have yet to enter something for which it doesn’t have an answer.
