Cocktails

It’s a Friday night and you’re out, shouting your drink order at the bartender in a very noisy pub.

Your convo goes a little something like this:

You: (Shouting) “I’LL HAVE A GLASS OF RIESLING!

The Bartender: A what?!

You: (with added enthusiasm) A. GLASS. OF. RIES-LING.

The Bartender: Oh, you mean Reese-ling?

You: (Awkward) Uh, yeah, that’s what I said.

Fluffing drink names rates high on the social awkwardness scale, but you don’t have to get it wrong.
