Guilty pleasures on Annie’s Launch

Guilty pleasures on Annies Launch

We are wondering what this cocktail on Annie's Launch says about our guests?

We are wondering what this cocktail on Annie’s Launch says about our guests?

We love this article ‘What Your Drink Says About You: First Date Tips From A Bartender’
By Tiffany McHugh
The original article is here

A good first-date-first-impression is almost as essential as a strong first-date-cocktail. Maybe you’re tired of being the bad boy, and you really want to wow this girl with some newfound, genuine charm. Or, maybe you’re sick of being given the girl-next-door treatment, and you’re more interested in seeming every bit the sexy-siren this evening.

Either way, tons of consideration goes into the type of vibe you’re trying to send. Once your outfit is picked, your meeting place secured, and your transportation arranged, it’s time to move on to the promise land, otherwise known as the bar. So, what do you order? We decided to leave this one up to the professionals and get some firsthand advice from a couple of bartenders who have seen it all.

Read on to see what your first-date-drink says about you!

Bay Breeze
Just as red wine screams seduction, and house wine screams cheap, fruity drinks like this one scream, “I just discovered my parents’ liquor cabinet.”

“Girls that order Malibu Bay Breezes are idiots,” says John. Jeez, a little harsh? Absolutely, but he is onto something. “Seriously, it’s like ‘ooh, a fruity drink!’ but then really, it’s all sugary juice, hardly any alcohol, and a surefire hangover.”
One thing is for sure: guys love a girl who can enjoy a cold beer. “Personally, I think it’s awesome when a girl orders a beer, especially when they want to hear the specials,” says Nick. “It shows that you’re not limited to just one type of drink, and I think it’s more attractive when someone is into being surprised by switching it up with a different type of

“But then there’s also Craft-Beer-Guy,” says John. “He wants to hear every single weird beer that we serve, and then tries to act like a snob talking about the hint of lemon-zest this one has, or how hoppy that one is.” Not every restaurant is a brewery, and he ranks Craft-Beer-Guy one step below the Red Wine Swirl-and-Sniffer.
White Wine
Both bartenders were in agreement that white wine is the more feminine pour of the two. “Women tend to be the white wine drinkers in here, and honestly it has a lot more to do with the selection of the wine than the fact that she’s ordering it,” says Nick.

John agrees that ordering a glass of white wine isn’t as significant as the type of white wine that you ask for.

What’s the biggest mistake that patrons make when requesting their vino of choice? Ordering a glass of the house blend. “People who order house wine are being frugal,” says John.

Meet Annie’s Launch guests – Heather Prince

We meet the most interesting people…

We at Annie’s Launch are very interested in Happiness. Met Heather Prince, who visited us last year and this is her interesting Blog from her website (Heather…


I just bumped into someone I’ve known for over 20 years and he asked what work I do and when I answered Life Coaching, he frowned and said what’s that?

So let me explain. I incorporate more than 1 style of therapy when working with clients it’s bespoke to their unique needs. The main aim is to clear ‘stuff’ that’s blocking them moving forward to live the life of their dreams.

I began running a Meditation group over 15 years ago when my 3 kids were little. Numerous clients were dealing with marriage break ups, financial challenges, weight issues and old deep rooted beliefs that we’re blocking them moving forward positively.

When my youngest son had challenges in school, I wrote ‘I am indigo’ and this has now gone Global as an E-book. My work as a therapist then developed and I worked with many mums dealing with parenting issues.

The main issue has been clients just not FEELING happy, so I’ve recorded a Happiness Meditation APP.

After my marriage ended, I’ve worked with many clients who have relationship issues and helped them forward.

I work for people all over the world via email, skype or FaceTime. Or one-to-one for those near Loughton, Essex.

If you or someone you know is unwell, has addiction (even sugar), or has family with addiction, needs relationship support, has a broken relationship, wants weight loss, or needs stress management – please contact me.

I find the root cause and push the DELETE button.
