When you go on a first date you obviously want to make a good first impression, but you may not realize that what drink you may be ruining that for you.

A new survey, conducted by Jack Daniels, finds:

  • The first drink you order on a date could be making a lasting impression on your potential match.
  • Although it seems men are more critical than women, with 60% of men saying a bad drink order would be a “deal breaker,” compared to just 32% of women.
  • 30% of Americans admit they ended a date early because of their date’s drink order.
  • 62% of people say a person’s drink choice shows a lot about their personality.
  • 65% of people think folks should order their favorite drink on a first date in order to reveal who they “really are.”

So, what drink orders leave a good impression on a date?

  • Well, a martini is one of the top choices, with 60% of people saying it leaves a good impression.
  • Other drinks that will leave dates impressed include:
    • Gin and tonic (46%)
    • Manhattan (45%)
    • Cosmopolitan (42%)
    • Whiskey Sour (42%)
  • On the flipside, you don’t want to order a Long Island Iced Tea on a date, with 22% of people saying it would leave a bad impression.
  • ONE MORE THING! A new survey, conducted by OnePoll, reveals the most popular cocktail in America and you may be surprised by the answer. The report taps the Margarita as America’s fave, with 26% of the vote, followed by a vodka soda (22%).
