I order what I would usually drink, if that is a bottle of beer than that is what you drink.  When I went to my first high end cocktail political party, I was worried what to order too.  It was the lady hosting the party that showed me just to be myself, she went straight to the bar and ordered a bottle of Bud.  She even uncapped it herself.  I figure if that lady made it to where she was at doing it, than I was fine doing it.

Can’t go wrong with a glass of wine or a vodka tonic.

I always drink wine at professional events.  It gives me a more chill buzz than, say, vodka πŸ™‚  If you like fruity drinks, go for a white wine, preferably a riesling.  If there is a small selection, ask the bartender which wine is less dry, and go with that one. 

If you are averse to wine, order a vodka ginger – sounds good to say, and is just vodka and ginger ale πŸ™‚

glass of wine is a good option! ask for pinot grigio (white wine).

i also don’t mind a fruity drink like a cosmo or white russian (mmm)

You could go with a Jack and Ginger, a mix btwn the whiskey (well blended whiskey) and the ginger ale idea.

@cazian: No problem!  And wine is always a perfectly respectable option πŸ™‚

At my office party cocktail hour, I order a lemon drop martini… πŸ™‚  I don’t think you could go wrong with any kind of martini, honestly.

I’d actually suggest staying away from wine, because you are likely to have wine with dinner and the point of the cocktail hour is for a cocktail.  A glass of champagne or prosecco is also a classy cocktail, IMO.

I’m a big fan of a dirty martini (but I do order them extra dirty) which can get some funny looks at a work event.

You could also order a glass of prosecco or cava. Sparkling wine is always fun and festive.

Glass of white wine. Won’t stain your teeth, looks adult.

@cazian: Wine is always good. If you’re typically more into fruity drinks, try ordering a slightly sweeter wine like a reisling or gewurztraminer.

I usually stick to wine, and typically white wine for the same reason as All Inor a vodka soda if I am not in the mood for wine.
