Embrace Your Drink!

Be proud of your drink choice. Don’t be shy about it.

It’s perfectly acceptable to have love for wines when some call it a “women’s drink.” Or if you like a raspberry flavor in your cocktail, don’t turn it away after seeing the “pinkish” color in it.

In this day and age of equality and the complete obliteration of labels, it seems silly to think of drinks as having a gender assignment.

You need to feel utterly confident about your drink and that’s how we say, “Man-up.”

ORDER A MARGARITA AT BACCHUS
The fact that margaritas have tequila in them, knocks it a couple rungs down on the frilly drink ladder. On Mondays, margaritas are only $3 at Bacchus (well tequila). On Thursdays, all tequila -yup, even top shelf- (shots) are $5. Order up a top-shelf margarita on Thursday and it’s only $7. The combination of lime and salt makes it manly - and (if the glassware matters,) we use a standard Collins glass for your margarita.

ORDER RED OR WHITE WINE AT BACCHUS
Despite any feminine connotations that come with wine, with its refreshing flavors and crisp finish, manly men are grabbing the bottle by the neck and making it their own. And why not? The smell of young wine is trivially called an “aroma” while mature wines offer a more subtle “bouquet.” Plus, it’s great to have with food (you have to sample the new Bacchus food menu).

ORDER SEX ON THE BEACH AT BACCHUS
Vodka, peach schnapps, creme de Cassis, orange juice and cranberry juice combine to form a potent cocktail that’s 12-15% alcohol. This drink is usually a complete no-no for any guy as its seen to be the most girly of all girly drinks. But drinking one is almost a test of masculinity, because if any guy can order one without so much as blinking, then he’s a fearless man.

Enjoy your drink with confidence. Just be yourself. It’s possibly the manliest thing you can do.
