Why Use Words When You Can Order Drinks With Emojis?

Human interaction is so 2014.

Daniela Galarza/Eater

You can order everything with emojis these days from pizza to drinks. Coconut Watering hole, a pop-up bar that opens next week in London, will serve a range of "coconut-based mocktails" (a.k.a cocktails with out the fun) which can be ordered via Instagram using emojis. Somehow this is supposed to be less confusing, less complicated, and more fun than just telling a bartender exactly what you want.

Coconut drink-loving customers simply have to post a photo to Instagram to help the "coconut cocktail team recognize you," and then tag the image with the corresponding emojis from the menu to receive mocktails like the "Georgia Peach" which features coconut water and peach juice. Good luck trying to figure out how to order a Buttery Nipple.
