It’s the classic question: how do you buy a woman a drink at the bar that you want to hook up with? Many men have devised strategies to answer this age old conundrum. Some have been successful, some haven’t, and some get slapped. It’s all in the delivery and the attitude, and a little luck. The thing is there’s a way to order a woman a drink that isn’t cheesy, and we’re here to let you in on the secrets. Here’s some drink tactics that have worked for us.
Every bar has a specialty, usually invented by the bartenders or the restaurant if it’s a chain. This can be a fun way to experiment with drinks, and works most effectively to win over a party girl type of woman. This is the woman who’s dancing a lot, laughing, probably in a decent-sized group of friends. She’s not going to expect a man to offer her the specialty drink, and what really seals the deal is if you offer to try it with her. Approach this woman as a fun loving type of guy who’s looking for a fun person to adventure with. Smile a lot and tell her that you need a buddy to try the crazy drinks with, and she’ll probably be receptive. Women respond well to humor and friendliness.
This is for a woman who looks like she’s probably a wine drinker. You might ask how you know what to look for in a wine drinker, but you’ll know when you see her. She’ll be reserved, and probably sipping, rather than chugging or steadily drinking. Usually she’s camped out at a quiet part of the bar or having a private, intimate conversation with one or two people. Brush up on your knowledge of wine before you go in for the kill on this one. This tactic is also best used in more classy establishments. You don’t want to go to a nightclub and try to buy a woman a sophisticated wine. That’s the wrong venue for this type of approach. Stick to actual wine bars, or bars that pride themselves on offering a wide selection of wines. That’s where you’re going to find the lady wine lovers. This is one of the rare occasions where if you don’t talk to her first, she won’t think you’re creepy. Order the finest wine off the menu and send it her way. It’s a conversation starter, and then you can take it from there.
