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.
