* ''Series/RumpoleOfTheBailey'': Rumpole's drink of choice is "Pommeroy's Plonk," aka "Chateau Fleet Street," aka "Chateau Thames Embankment," aka whatever claret Pommeroy's Wine Bar stocks for two quid a bottle. She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed (i.e. his wife Hilda) is typically seen quaffing gin and tonic. The clerk Henry goes for Dubonnet and lemonade, while Claude Erskine-Brown fancies himself a wine connoisseur and Sam Ballard CantHoldHisLiquor and therefore drinks mineral water.

* Another classic example is when ComicStrip/ThePhantom goes to town in the guise of Mr. Walker, to extract information. He will invariably visit the grungiest bar in the seediest part of Morristown and order milk. And they will ''always'' have a bottle handy.

* UsefulNotes/FrederickTheGreat was fond of [[{{Uncoffee}} coffee boiled in champagne]], which combined perfectly two of his passions: modernity and French culture. Coffee was very modern in the early 18th century, and champagne is of course French. Note that this didn't keep him from [[{{Hypocrite}} banning coffee to commoners]] to protect the brewing industry, despite [[HypocriticalHumor his hatred of beer (he found it too German)]].

* Whisk(e)y: Depends on the type. If a character orders Scotch they may be portrayed as sophisticated, but if they order rye or bourbon they may be portrayed as a rough around the edges badass. Regardless of the type, whisk(e)y is always portrayed as a [[RatedMForManly manly drink]]--a woman who likes whisk(e)y is, if not mannish, is definitely tough and determined.

* BobHope in ''Film/RoadTo Utopia''. Hope's character tries to fit in at tough-guy frontier bar, but then orders a lemonade. Realizing his mistake, he quickly turns to the bartender and growls, "...in a dirty glass!"

* One of the many ways that ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' showcases Dante's quirkiness despite his status as a {{Badass}} is in, among other things, his tendency to instantly assume that people who enter his shop are looking for the bathroom, his fondness for tomato juice, and his habit of ordering a strawberry sundae from any bar he walks into. The last one in particular is seen in the very first scene in the [[Anime/DevilMayCryTheAnimatedSeries anime]].
* {{Badass}} giant robot pilot Van of ''Anime/GunXSword'' has as his drink of choice... ''milk.'' He does have an excuse, however - he CantHoldHisLiquor worth a damn.
