NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr. 16): "Bartender, make it a double!"

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr. 16): "Bartender, make it a double!":
Q: Name two drink orders you might make at a tavern. Each is a single word. Read these two words one after another, and you'll get a familiar two word phrase that names something you never want to be seen in. What is it?
I'm a little late in posting this because I hadn't figured out the answer. But last night my wife and I were mulling it over and she came up with what we think is the right answer... I'll post it later today. My hint is that the drink orders aren't specific types of drinks (e.g. not 'ale', 'beer', etc.)
Edit: Okay, as promised here's the answer we came up with.

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
