5 Female TV Characters We’d Like to Drink With

We’re equal opportunity drinkers at Project Fandom. As we have already said, one of the highest honors you can bestow on someone is, “I’d like to have a drink with that guy.” And by “guy” we don’t just mean men; there are plenty of ladies out with whom we’d like to knock a few back. Here are the five female TV characters we’d most like to have a drink with:


Santana Lopez (Naya Rivera)

Santana Lopez (from Glee) is gorgeous, talented, and full of attitude (kind of like us) so, it’s a given that we’d want to have a drink with her, Now, technically, Santana is underage, but the actress that plays her is of age so, that makes it ok, right? RIGHT?

Alisha and Kelly (played by Antonia L. Thomas and Lauren Socha)

We’re pretty giddy about British television programming around here, and these two ladies (from the gritty UK series Misfits) are the prime example of TV characters we wish we could join at the pub for a couple of pints; and it doesn’t matter if their super-power is to seduce with a touch or they are blessed with the mental capabilities of a fookin’ rocket scientist.

Gloria-Delgado Pritchett (Sofia Vergara)

Even if we were to completely ignore the fact that this woman’s body gives off enough heat to render the sun useless, Gloria’s vibrant personality is enough to make us want to talk to her for hours over a drink or seven. Factor in all the moments that things have been “lost in translation” (baby cheeses anyone?) and you’re guaranteed a fun night over drinks with this spicy lady.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)

Daenerys Stormborn, mother-of-dragons, The Unburnt; this silver-haired beauty has passion and poise and walked straight into a funeral pyre and survived! And if that isn’t enough reason to have a drink with a Westeros-exile-turned-Khaleesi well, we’ve got one word for you… Fucking dragons. Ok, well that’s two words but, come on… they’re fucking dragons!

Any of Doctor Who’s companions

What can we say? We’re suckers for anything Who-related! It doesn’t matter if it’s Rose (Billie Piper), Martha (Freema Agyeman), Donna (Catherine Tate), or Amy (Karen Gillan); we would love to have a drink with any of these brave women, even if it is just to ask them all about what The Doctor is like in “real life.”

That’s our lady drink wish list. Who’s on yours?

About Rosangela Robinson (7 Articles)
Rosangela Robinson is an introvert turned party girl turned mother-of-two. Having recently re-joined the workforce after five years of being a stay-at-home mother, she now spends her days trying desperately to balance her love of her family with her love of reading and writing in a way that leaves her family feeling loved but still allows ample time for her to escape to a place where her family may or may not exist.

43 Comments on 5 Female TV Characters We’d Like to Drink With

  1. I could drink to all of that. Sofia Vergara!

  2. I’m going to have to with:
    Garcia from Criminal Minds, on account of she’s smart and funny and sweet and hangs out with Shemar Moore’s character and might be able to hook a girl up.  So duh.
    Amy Farrah Fowler from BBT. She’s probably gonna stick her tongue down my throat before it’s over but man, it’d be a good story. 
    Hettie from NCIS:LA. That little old woman is cooler than shit and saves that whole show, which I’m not sure I’d watch, except for the fact that LL Cool J is so damn hot. There. I said it. 
    Fiona from Burn Notice. Two words – Bad. Ass. 
    Buffy. She’s old enough now, right?

  3. 1. Melissa McCarthy from Bridesmaids. She would be a blast.
    2. Chelsea Handler. Also hilarious.
    3. I’ll agree to Santana Lopez. Girl crush.
    4. Chyler Leigh (Lexi from Grey’s Anatomy). She just seems sweet and fun.
    5. Sofia Vergara. She’s hot and she’s funny.

  4. Melissa McCarthy for sure! I have loved everything she’s been in. Well, that I’ve seen. 🙂 I loved Suki from Gilmore Girls!

    Amy Farrah Fowler, too.

  5. I would drink with all the of-age female characters in “Parenthood.” I love that damn show, and it’s a fantasy of mine to get invited to one of their family dinners.
    Deborah Morgan from “Dexter.”
    Pam from “True Blood.”
    Claire Fisher from “Six Feet Under,” although she would have been under-age.
    The Dowager Countess from “Downton Abbey.”

  6. I’ll take this entire list to go.

    I’ll also throw in Molotov Cocktease and Dr. Girlfriend from The Venture Brothers.

  7. Hyacinth Bucket from Keeping Up Appearances. Hopefully she would be in full makeup, hat, and gloves. I would love to get her drunk and see what she really has to say 😉

  8. Veronica Mars. We’d drink and solve crimes and kick ass.

  9. Rose/Martha – Yes
    Amy/Donna – No

    • You don’t like Amy? She’s hot!

    • It would depend on which Rose incarnation we’re talking about. If we’re talking about Nine/Early Ten Rose, then sure. Late Ten Rose, not so much. Martha? Abso-fucking-loutely! The fact that I have a crush on Freema Agyeman notwithstanding, I’d love to have a pint or six with her.

      I’d have a few drinks with Donna, because she looks like she could toss ’em back like a pro. Amy? I agree about drunk Amy probably getting on your nerves, because she’d certainly get on mine.

      • I agree, early Rose would probably be fun to take out for a pint.

        Definitely Martha – she’s just badass. And Donna for the same reason you stated – she can probably toss ’em back.

        I just want to pat Amy on the head. Though I’m not sure how I feel about alternate reality/time frame Amy. I’m probably not accurately representing the plot of that episode, but I hope you know what I mean.

    • Ewwww….Rose!?!

  10. Elaine Benes (Seinfeld) – first I’d get All.The.Secrets. out of The Vault because I know the password. Then, we’d just start shoving random people really hard and shouting “Get. Out!” Bonus: if she dances, the night will be legen…. (wait for it)…dary.

    Veronica Mars – I just can’t enough of her! (Also, I could go through her purse when she goes to the bathroom and steal the key to Logan’s hotel room…)

    Sue Sylvester (Glee)
    Karen Walker (Will & Grace)
    Lucille Bluth (Arrested Development)
    (Apparently, I like to drink and mock people relentlessly…)

  11. My list might include Abby Sciuto from NCIS, Max from 2 Broke Girls, Harry in Harry’s Law (Kathy Bates), Berta from 2.5 men, and anyone Christine Baranski has ever played.

  12. I can’t believe I forgot about Patsy and Edina from Absolutely Fabulous. I would LOVE to drink with those two.

  13. Sue Ann Nivens, Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies, Florence from the Jeffersons, Laura Petrie and Mrs Olsen from Little House on the Prairie.

  14. I would get a few of these females really drunk. Just saying. 🙂

  15. I totally agree with Alisha, Kelly, and Sofia.

  16. I would also drink with Tara (Rutina Wesley) from True Blood and Betty White.

  17. I agree with everyone above and would just add these:
    Sally Sparrow – “Don’t Blink” epi from Doctor Who (and I think she had a cameo later on). There’s just something about her willingness to accept and investigate the strange that I think she would be interesting to chat with over a drink.
    Gwen Cooper – another badass. I would just want to keep an eye out for when she slipped that memory alter/erase drug in my drink. And, maybe she could introduce me to Jack?
    Phoebe Buffay – experiences galore and good for a laugh
    Anne Robinson – as her persona on the weakest link. You are the slowest drinker … goodbye.
    Maude – oh yes, Maude.

    I love Sofia Vergara’s Gloria character. I would drink with her. I would drink with Chelsea Handler (I record and watch every show, even though her ginger mocking pisses me off). And also Veronica Mars. Most of all, though, I would like to drink with Debra Morgan from Dexter. I love her potty mouth and no-bullshit manner. In my next life, I come back like that. (But with silver hair like Daeneaeraeaernys or whatever. She makes silver hair look so cool.)

  19. Only if Sophia Vergara doesn’t talk. There’s not enough booze that you could pour into my ear that’ll make her voice tolerable.

  20. Maybe all the ladies from Golden Girls. That’d be a hoot.
