We all have that "signature" drink. One that we go to in times of need, in times of sorrow, times of joy or times of relaxation. The funny thing is that we usually don't change our drink based on our mood. If you're a champagne person, well, you go for champagne all the time! Maybe Mimosas in the morning, a French 75 (see recipe below) with lunch and a pink champagne cocktail with dinner. Whatever your drink, we can guarantee that it has evolved with you overtime, but it is always "your drink".
Did you ever think that your "preferred" drink might say something about you? Don't panic here, it isn't a bad thing. There may just be a common denominator between your temperament and your choice of drink.
Sauce of Life Tip: Most people are a combination of 2 of the 4 temperaments.
Which two temperaments do you relate to?
Choleric: these people are usually drawn to be leaders with ambition, passion and energy.
Melancholic: these are the perfectionists who are typically introverted, but are very thoughtful.
Phlegmatic: these people are content with stability and don't stray far from what's comfortable.
Sanguine: these are the social, fun-loving people who want to enjoy life and rarely lack confidence.
Margarita: Sanguine (can't miss out on a party!)
Corona Beer: Melancholic or Phlegmatic (not likely to take a risk)
Champagne: Choleric or Sanguine (Choleric drinks this for position and Sanguine drinks this for pleasure)
Scotch: Choleric (drinks to portray leadership or power at a business dinner)
Red Wine: Choleric or Phlegmatic (Choleric drinks red wine for prestige and Phlegmatic drinks red wine for consistency)
White Wine: Sanguine or Melancholic (Sanguine drinks white wine to taste the sweetness of life and the Melancholic drinks white wine for the taste of perfection)
Martini: All 4 temperaments will drink from the many varities of Martinis, but which temperament will use this as their "go-to" drink? It's the Sanguine! That "kick" from a Dirty Martini helps the party get started!
So which temperament will be showing itself tonight? Can we guess your temperament by your drink?
