* Used to establish several characters in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}''. For example, the can-do Southerner Bill [=McMoster=] offers the protagonist John Rumford a classy Bourbon, while the aristocratic Germanophile William Kraft prefers rare European wines.

* Milk: As water, but with more emphasis on naivety, or someone who's out of their element. (Not to be confused with DrunkOnMilk.)

* Milk: As water, but with more emphasis on naivety, or someone who's out of their element. Or someone who's ''really'' too badass to give a damn, possibly ordering milk to make exactly that point. (Not to be confused with DrunkOnMilk.)

* Whisk(e)y: Depends on the type. If a character orders Scotch or Irish whisky, they may be portrayed as sophisticated or worldly. On the other hand, 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, which brings it back into "worldly" territory, albeit with connotations of "straight-talking American." This doesn't work as much with Canadian rye--even though there are more "sophisticated" Canadian whiskys, all but the most exclusive have a rough connotation, and so most of the time Canadian rye 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 (recall Creator/JudiDench's bourbon-loving M from the Franchise/JamesBond films).

* On ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill, Hank, Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer, all drink beer when they're off the clock, showing them as working-class guys (Hank specifically says they do it to relax after a hard day). They also obsessively only drink the fictional Alamo brand, which is brewed in America (specifically Texas), showing the obsessive patriotism the four of them subscribe to (especially since Alamo is implied to not even be that good).

* ''WesternAnimation/KingsOfTheInlandEmpire'': All four of the main manly men love light beer and energy drinks. In fact, they buy a tap in their kitchen that simultaneously dispenses Coors Light ''and'' Monster Energy Fuel.

* Beer: Traditionally the drink of the plebeian, the working-class everyday Joe. In recent times, however, it might be considered the mark of a hipster, particularly if the order is for something obscure, only available in a few select locales, or otherwise hard to obtain. A hipster might even drink a very common, cheap beer "ironically." (Pabst Blue Ribbon is particularly common among ironic drinkers.)

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In one episode where [[TheDragon Travis]] is supposed to be a [[SpaceWestern tough gunslinger]], he walks into a bar and orders a vitazade. Which [[HilariousInHindsight unfortunately is now an Irish soft drink]]. Apart from this the usual booze of choice is "adrenaline and soma", implied to be a pick-me-up with the [[Literature/BraveNewWorld soma]] to take the edge off.

* Elwood P. Dowd would always order two martinis when he went to the bar -- one for himself, and one for Theatre/{{Harvey}}. Of course, the locals figure he's just downing both of them himself and then drunkenly gushing about the tall anthropomorphic rabbit friend of his.

* Vodka (straight, as opposed to in a cocktail) will be consumed by either VodkaDrunkenski from the old Communist Bloc, or someone who wants to get hammered very quickly.
