Time for company HH: What's your go-to drink?

What's the first drink your ordering at your company happy hour?


Depending on the kind of day I had, I like a cold draft beer or whiskey-ginger.

A shot of whiskey followed by a nice lemon squeezed directly into one of my eyeballs, for vigor.

Whiskey. Anything with whiskey (manhattan, old fashioned, neat, etc). I typically migrate to beer shortly following and pace that out so that I am not the drunkest in the room. Preferably 3rd most drunk, so when #1 gets kicked out, I am still not the worst.Β

Depends on where we're going! In Chicago, we end up at craft cocktail bars a fair bit of the time, so I'm just about always going to enjoy something that comes from the brains of those mad scientists.Β 

But if we're talking classic cocktail, I'm going either French 75 or a gin Greyhound.

I normally don't drink and well at company events I stick to 1 beer maybe 2 and go home early. I generally hate dealing with drunk. Toke up and socialize and leave when appropriate. I can go crazy with my friends on my own time.

Straight bourbon or an old fashioned – unless everyone's drinking beer, then it's an IPA

Scotch and soda if its company-wide

Shot of Beam and a beer if its the sales team

But if you're somewhere where you need to keep your wits about you... Pro Move: Order a ginger beer in a rocks glass - it'll look like scotch and you'll give a convincing wince when you drink it
