PEOPLE & THEIR DRINKSA recent magazine survey interviewed fifty bartenders and they were asked if they could identify a customer's personality on what drinks they ordered. Although interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts. The results: If Women Drink . Beer Personality: Casual, low maintenance; down to earth. Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool. Cocktails or Blender drinks with umbrella Personality: Flaky, annoying, dizzy, and a pain in the ass.

Water Personality: Pretentious and is looking for a serious relationship. Approach: Don't. Wine - (bottled, not 4 litre cask) Personality: Conservative and classy, sophisticated. Approach: Try and weave Paris and clothing into the conversation. Bacardi Breezer, Red Square, Archers Cooler, Smirnoff Ice, Mudshake etc. Personality: Easy; thinks she is trendy and sophisticated actually has no clue. Approach: Make her feel smarter than she is... and you're in. Cape Velvet Personality: Annoying voice, bit of a tart. Approach: Stand close and mention the alley next to the pub. Shots and Slammers (Tequila, Vodka, Aftershock etc.) Personality: Hangs around with male work pals or looking to get drunk...and naked. Approach: Easiest hit in the pub, Nothing to do but wait.......

Castle Lager Beer He likes good beer and wants to get laid. Imported Beer He's old; he likes good beer and wants to get laid. Guinness The man is a rapist and will get laid one way or another. Water He just threw up and is trying to wash the taste out of his mouth so that he can still get laid Wine He's hoping that the wine thing will give him a sophisticated image and help him get laid. Vodka or Brandy Extremely horny hound, would shag a warm scarf. Desperate to get laid. Port Thinks he's sophisticated, secretly likes men and wants to get laid.
