Stars: They drink just like us. No really, they do. Even the highest paid actress in the world or the best-selling author in history calls for the same drinks you do. The only difference is that they might just get served a little quicker than you. And if you want to know which celebrity shares your precise cocktail proclivities, we’ve got the answers.
Then you’ll be sharing a drink with Benedict Cumberbatch. The ever-charming Sherlock star said he finds the spritz “really refreshing … [and] not too sweet.” And he probably said it in that damn charming accent of his.
Then you’ve got the same order as Jennifer Lawrence. She told Access Hollywood that she liked them so much she wanted a Piña Colada tap for her table at the Golden Globes. You two will have such wonderful brain freezes together.
Then Dwayne Johnson is your drinking buddy. The artist formerly known as The Rock has counted tequila as his secret for everything from his slightly too shiny skin to his melodious singing voice in Moana. And while he hasn’t namechecked the Paloma specifically, if you’re drinking tequila, you’ve definitely had a few of them.
Then yooooooooouuuuu’re driiiiiiinkiiiiiing wiiiiiith Opraaaaaaaaaaah. Perhaps a bit late to the modern cocktail renaissance, Oprah didn’t discover her love of vodka, ginger beer and copper mugs until 2011. Better late than never.
Then you’d be sharing a drink with Winston Churchill. At least you would be if he wasn’t dead. Britain’s most famous prime minister (sorry, William Pitt the Younger) was well known for sipping a Whiskey Highball slowly throughout the morning. Since you can’t belly up to a bar with Churchill himself, ask the bartender to stream John Lithgow in The Queen and imagine what it would be like.
Then you’re ordering alongside Jennifer Aniston. America’s sweetheart actually used the word “yummy” to describe tequila, which … well … tequila is many wonderful things, but “yummy” isn’t a common descriptor. But both you and Jen clearly love Margaritas. The question is: Do you like yours with a “squinch” of Cointreau?
Then Nick Offerman is your man. To ring in New Years, the man was recorded enjoying some scotch in an hour-long video. His preferred state seems to be silently sipping, so the conversation between you two may not be sparkling, perhaps that’s just as well. Why talk when there’s whisky to be had?
Then you’ll be imbibing with Chris Hemsworth. According to a (surprisingly long) Q&A with GQ, he once told someone he loved the basic cocktail, and that person responded by saying, “Tell me when you want a real drink.” Feel good about yourself knowing that you’ll never be that rude to Thor.
Then it’s you and Aziz Ansari forever. The man knows his food and he knows his drinks. And on more than one occasion he’s professed his love for the Gold Rush, a slight variation on a Whiskey Sour made with honey syrup.
