Be honest. Can you really drink a White Russian without thinking of The Big Lebowski or a Cosmo without picturing the cast of Sex & The City? If you can't, you're not alone.

Pop culture's six most influential drink orders are a revolutionary bunch. Scroll and learn--and let us know in the comments if we missed any.

1. James Bond & The Martini

007 might have a license to kill, but he doesn't know the right way to make his favorite drink.

2. The Dude & The White Russian

"Hey careful, man! There's a beverage here!"

3. Hannibal Lector and a Nice Chianti

Pairs excellently with some fava beans and liver (or so the story goes).

4. Sex and the City & The Cosmo

The Cosmo is so intertwined with Carrie and her gang, many viewers assumed the show invented it. Wrong. But an understandable mistake.

5. Ron Swanson & Single Malt Scotch

Ron Swanson may be old fashioned, but he sure knows a solid drink order.

6. Blue Velvet & Pabst Blue Ribbon

If the stereotypes are right, all hipsters love David Lynch and PBR. Coincidence? Hmm?
