We all have our poison. Be it the man who likes his tea prepared a certain way, or a boy who likes his cola chilled; there’s something we all love to drink. Likewise, our favorite characters from TV shows and movies also have soft spots for their beloved brews. These drinks define the character, or even the TV show or the movie. Think about it, what would Mad Men be without all the booze? So, here are some of the most iconic drinks from TV shows and movies over the years (with recipes)! So, get mixing and watch these awesome shows or movies with a drink in hand.

1. The Old Fashioned – Don Draper

Mad Men’s Don Draper is a simple guy, who’s still stuck in the past. Little surprise he likes his drinks old school. Cocktails are such an integral part of the show that they deserve an Emmy of their own.

2. The White Russian – The Dude

The Big Lebowski was A-grade awesome. The Dude’s love for White Russians is no secret, and the man will do what it takes to get his hands on one. Remember when he’s being shoved into a limo and he says, “Careful man, there’s a beverage here!"?

3. The Martini – James Bond

Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig, there is only one way to make this one – shaken, not stirred.

4. The Cosmopolitan – Carrie Bradshaw

Sarah Jessica Parker from Sex and the City always had one of these during her time on the hit show. Go on, mix one up and relive the 90s.

5. Sex on the Beach – Brian Flanagan

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like Tom Cruise from Cocktail. Remember that part where Cruise climbs up to the bar and recites the most popular beverages? Yeah, Sex on the Beach was one of them. Sit back and enjoy one by the waves, or, in the words of Flanagan,
“If you want to get loaded, why don’t you order a shot?”
