“… if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman’s step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life’s great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows;…then certainly I am for it. This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.” – Noah S Sweat Jnr
I’ll drink to that! This stand by Noah S Sweat Jnr is one in which I totally agree with and one likely to turn the biggest skeptics into believers. So what is a signature drink anyway? In this article, a signature drink is the drink/brand that you hold in high regard and one that would be the first you reach for if you were let’s say thrown into an Alcohol brewery. It is the one brand which overtime people get accustomed to knowing you for as it becomes a huge part of your personality and presence.
Reaching for any and every drink you come across cheapens your value and speaks volumes about your level of culture or lack thereof. James Bond is known by his signature drink, Martini with his classic line ‘A martini, shaken not stirred’. You should be known for one too.
Below are a few drinks you might want to consider when trying to make up your mind on a signature drink and to make things easy for you this has been drawn in line with different personality types.
This is a brand for those who are in control, those who boss the positions they hold and those who have their life ruled by ambitions. This is also for those who are extremely thorough, responsible and dependable.

The Martini TV advert which featured Uti Nwachukwu and had the tagline ‘No Martini, No Party’ is one that is testament to the fact that Martini is a brand for people who are the life of the party and live a vibrant lifestyle.
[rad-hl]Patron Silver Tequila[/rad-hl]:
Patron being slightly on the high side is a brand of tequila reserved for executives and entrepreneurs on top of their game, who are assertive, outspoken and driven to lead.
Johnny Walker Red label:
Red label has long been a favorite for me probably because of its mellow taste and slightly modest price. This is a brand reserved for those who live for the moment, have high standards, action oriented and who live a fast paced lifestyle.
[rad-hl]Dom Perignon Brut[/rad-hl]:
Dom Perignon Brut is a brand for the original and well respected. Enthusiastic and have a broad range of interests and abilities. They are risk takers, loyal and tend to have an aesthetic appreciation for beauty.
So there it is people, hope this has been of help and you have been able to pick out a drink you believe would be the perfect fit for you. Remember, don’t drink and drive and please say no to excessive drinking. Until next time, bottoms up!
