* Creator/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!"

** When times get rough in 1885 in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', genius Emmett "Doc" Brown heads to the bar. The Hill Valley saloon is so RatedMForManly that when Marty tries to order a nonalcoholic drink, the barflies laugh while the bartender pours him a free shot of whiskey--that [[GargleBlaster BURNS]] the bar top where it spills. However, Doc is [[CantHoldHisLiquor apparently so bad at being drunk]] that the bartender keeps some sarsaparilla [[note:an old West-era soft drink]] in stock just for him. Doc ends up drinking one single shot of whiskey, which knocks him out entirely.

** When times get rough in 1885 in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', genius Emmett "Doc" Brown heads to the bar. For him the bartender makes an exception to his usual lineup (when Marty tries to order a nonalcoholic drink, the barflies laugh while the bartender pours him a free shot of whiskey--that [[GargleBlaster BURNS]] the bar top where it spills) and keeps some sarsparilla in stock just for him. Doc has, however, been known to hit the whiskey. It hits him back quite promptly.

* Creator/DanAykroyd is the part-owner of a vodka brand, Crystal Head Vodka, which comes in a skull-shaped bottle. He works it into almost all of his appearances on TV or in film and is rarely seen outside in public without ''something'' with the logo on his person. He also owns a vineyard and has his own wine brand, and owns the distribution rights to Patron tequila in his native Canada. Essentially, [[TheAlcoholic dude likes his booze]].

* Comedian Maria Bamford mentions Diet Coke in a lot of her jokes.
* Music/EltonJohn and Diet Coke, at least in TheNineties. He was a celebrity endorser of the drink in television ads, and it was a fixture of his contract riders.
* Much like Elton John, former Disney studio chairman and Creator/DreamWorksAnimation founder Jeffrey Katzenberg has a favorite drink in Diet Coke. Reportedly, he was handed a Diet Coke upon entering animation meetings at Disney and also is alleged to down cans of it a day.

** Betty seems to prefer white wine and/or gimlets, although she goes for red wine in the earlier seasons when drinking alone around the house; her new husband (as of Season 4) Henry Francis seems to like brandy before bed. Roger Sterling seems to drink whatever's handy, but has a general preference for vodka, and starting in Season 4 there always seems to be a bottle of Smirnoff in his office. ProductPlacement, anyone?

** Ted Chaough orders an "Old Spanish" at a bar at one point. This is not a real drink, but a ShoutOut to ''Series/ThirtyRock'' (in which it is a rather disgusting-sounding wine cocktail).

* Whisk(e)y: Depends on the type. If a character orders Scotch or Irish whisky, they may be portrayed as sophisticated or worldly, but if they order bourbon or rye (American or Canadian) they may be portrayed as a rough around the edges badass--unless it's a "sophisticated" rye or bourbon like Woodford Reserve or Booker's brings it back into "worldly" territory, albeit with connotations of "straight-talking American." (Canadian rye--especially Crown Royal--also says "working-class person from Ontario or the Midwestern U.S. who probably watches way too much hockey.") 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, then definitely tough and determined.
