Drinks You Only Order When You're 21


Going out to bars and ordering alcohol legally at restaurants is super exciting when you've just turned 21. It feels like a whole new world has opened up where before there was only stolen sips and furtive chugging. When you're 21, you can order with legitimacy, pride and gumption. You belong at that bar -- you're supposed to be there. You'll stick out like a sore thumb, however, if you don't know what to order.

It's not your fault, 21-year-olds. You're just inexperienced. It's painfully obvious, however, that you're a newbie at bar culture when you're ordering that Screwdriver.

If you're over 21 and you're still ordering some of these drinks when you're out at a bar or restaurant, take a cue from some of these bartenders and order what the professionals are drinking on their nights off.

Here are 15 of the most hilarious signs that you're recently of legal drinking age. What drinks were you ordering when you were 21?
