Cocktail Decoder

Relationship expert Dr. Jackie Black reveals what a woman’s drink says about her.

“She’s likely to be high-maintenance, but a serious drinker. Martini women are typically stressed out, depressed, and looking to shift their mood.”

Lemon Drops
“This person would be really fun to go out with. She’s fashionable, trendy, and fun-loving. She may have street smarts, but she isn’t a Rhodes Scholar.”

“This drink says intelligence. A Scotch-drinking woman is grounded, knows who she is, and doesn’t care what anybody thinks.”

“This girl is elitist, pretentious, wants people to think she’s an intellectual, and wishes she were French. She has a little bit of fantasy going on.”

“Downing brews means she’s trying to be one of the guys. She can be spontaneous and fun, but she doesn’t feel comfortable with her femininity.”

Red Wine
“Wine lovers are health conscious and conservative, but  also sensual, warm, and nurturing. She likes the warmth wine gives when it hits her throat.”

Rum and Coke
“This girl likes to have fun and is really laid-back. If that glass of rum and Coke could speak, it would say, ‘I’m going nuts tonight!’”

“She’s another high-maintenance chick. She typically doesn’t go with the flow and tries a bit too hard to look sophisticated to the people around her.”
