Here at Yumology our gals love to hunker down on a Monday night and watch The Bachelor during a Girls Night In. Tonight is The Bachelor Women Tell All and our Yumologist chicas have put together a drink menu based on what they feel each bachelorette may be feeling and drinking during this emotional reunion with the one who got away.

Scroll to the bottom for a Jalapeno Margarita recipe guaranteed to satisy all those burned Bachelorettes!


Alli - Bud Light
Nothing fancy with this hometown gal from Columbus, OH. She likes to keep it simple and sticks with what works. Bottle or draft doesn't matter as long as it's reliable.


Ashley H. - Sauvignon Blanc
Nothing too sugary sweet for this dentist with an edge. French sophistication meets small-town chic in a go-to glass of Sauv Blanc.


Ashley S. - Kahlua Mud Slide
This nanny has a soft side when it comes to family and cherishes her childhood memories with her sister. What better way to transition to grown up chocolate milk than enjoying a Kahlua Mud Slide before a nap.


Britnee - Scotch and Soda
Being a paralegal Britnee likes to prove she can run with the big dogs but still stay true to her femininity. Practical yet provocative a scotch and soda offers the best of both worlds.


Britt - Champagne Cocktail
Domestic goddess in a bottle, Britt likes to cook, clean ,craft and keep a pet rabbit. Martha Stewart would be proud.


Chantal (FINALIST) - Tequila Shot
This edgy executive assistant has proven that being straight with a man is almost as important as being straight with your drink. Knocking it back or knocking him out Chantal packs a punch!


Cristy - Sam Adams
Cristy wants conversation in a man and what better way to keep the dynamic flowing than over a good traditional ale.


Emily (FINALIST) - Long Island Iced Tea
This southern belle has been through a lot but still likes to sit on the porch at the end of the day and unwind without things getting too out of control.


J - Merlot
Strength in body is important to J, but when it comes to the unknown she sticks with what works.


Jackie - Sangria
This NY based artist likes to celebrate outdoors and what better way to get creative and enjoy the fireworks that with a glass of your very own sangria.


Jill - Corona
This all-American girl from Texas likes her roots but loves those tropical vacations too. A Corona and lime offers the vacay vibe either on the beach or in the backyard.


Keltie - Cosmopolitan
A Hollywood native turned Rockette in the big city, Keltie knows how to keep it cosmopolitan under the bright lights at Radio City Music Hall.


Kimberly - Blue Moon
Big on family, friends and football this Florida native can settle in for the game while enjoying a beer that boasts oranges from her home state.


Lacey - Lager and Lime
Somewhat of an Anglophile Lacy longs to change places with her majesty one day. Perhaps a lager and lime will help ease those pre-monarchy nerves.


Lauren - Rum and Coke
After a long day of teaching high school students a little rum in the old Coca Cola might help take the edge off.


Lindsay - Irish Coffee
A fiery red-headed first grade teacher should treat herself to a morning pick-me-up every once in a while.


Lisa M. - Vodka Cranberry
A track athlete who likes to stay in shape, Lisa M. will remain hydrated as long as she keeps to two-parts cranberry, one part vodka.


Lisa P. - Vodka Tonic
Lisa P. seems like a no B.S. type of gal. A vodka tonic gets the job done just as she likes.


Madison - Mai Tai
A model who travels to exotic locations should be as fruity in her drinks as she is in her surroundings.


Marissa - Budweiser
Nothing but the King of Beers for this Sports Publicist whose career is her number one priority.


Meghan - Shiraz
Best friends are important to Meghan and what better way to pull the girls together than over a bottle of Australian red.


Melissa - Amaretto Sour
Sounds like Melissa had it tough as a kid. What better way to wash those sour memories away than with a glass of this southern comfort.


Michelle - Absinth
And we're pretty sure she was knocking it back by the gallon. Illegal in some countries because of it's strength and unknown properties, Absinth is a very unpredictable drink, a lot like Michelle.


Raichel - Coors Light
Tried and true brew for this gaseous gal who's not afraid to own up to her insecurities and most embarrassing moments.


Rebecca - Spiked Cider
A big fan of Christmas and family this drink would never disappoint Rebecca on one of her most important days of the year.


Renee - White Zinfandel
She likes her life pretty in pink and we're guessing her wine the same way. A little too idealistic is this one which is why a wine that sits on the fence is perfect for her.


Sarah L. - Chardonnay
A light wine like a Chardonnay will give this musical theater gal just the lift she needs before going on stage.


Sarah P. - Riesling
Almost too sweet to handle but does the trick, Sarah P. and a solid Riesling would get along just fine.


Shawntel - Dark & Stormy
It's mysterious and keeps you guessing much like this funeral director from Chico, CA.


Stacey - Dirty Martini
There's something naughty about this bartender from Quincy, Mass and her inability to answer a question without a wry smile on her face.


Brad Womack
What about The Bachelor himself? What drink epitomizes the essence of Brad Womack? Our Yumologists thought long and hard about this one and came up with a Jalapeno Margarita in honor of all the ladies who have been burned by this controversial comeback kid! Mix your own by following the recipe below and get a taste for what all Brad's jilted ladies have been through.
