Instadrink | Slang/Noun | Any drink that a customer orders because he/she saw it on Instagram (“Can I get one of those yummy-looking ______ that you posted on Instagram a few weeks ago?”). Instadrinks are typically daily specials or one-offs, and making them on the fly during service isn’t always possible. Common in restaurants with big follower counts.

Usage | “My table is pointing to Instadrinks on their phones like it’s a menu. They haven’t said a word to me…”
