What drink to order at 5-star restaurant

ok, obviouslly...... I have a mind of my own and tastes of my own "lol". just looking for some new ideas maybe.

I'm going to a 5 star restaurant this weekend and wanted to get something good and something I could enjoy. I don't drink often...well i do have 2 little ones so I don't have the time.

Anyways, what would you order if you were sitting in a 5 star restaurant.

You're kidding, aren't you? I'd order whatever I normally like to drink. Just because it's a 5-star restaurant means nothing as far as libations (or anything else for that matter). Just order the cocktail you're in the mood for at the time. No need to get fancy shmancy just because it's a "5-star restaurant" in some critic's eye.

well I don't drink often and don't remember too many drink names. I do like vodka and I drink beers here and there. When I was in my early 20's or even younger than that..I used to drink to get drunk with my friends "lol". Just looking for some fresh ideas. I could probably just get a beer or some wine.

I'd order a dry martini, because I like them and only have them maybe twice a year (which is twice more a year than I go to a 5-star restaurant).

Cosmopolitans were really popular with women when Sex in the City was on.

A vodka gimlet is a nice drink.

Where ya goin', legend?

Hard alcohol drinks can dull your taste buds so I would stick with beer or wine during dinner. After dinner I would enjoy a dry vodka martini.

It's Rob Roy season.....straight up. Manhattans, up, are nice too. However, since you don't drink often, get whatever you get on the rocks. Sipping one nice cocktail as you look over the menu is a magnificent prelude to an even better meal.

Enjoy!

I like to try different things I have not had before - a nice wine, a different vodka or bourbon - I like to sip grand marnier after dinner or a good irish coffee - just me though.
