NPR Sunday Puzzle (July 30): What's Your Drink Order?

NPR Sunday Puzzle (July 30): What's Your Drink Order?:
Q: Name something you might order in a bar. It's two words; three letters in the first word, five letters in the second. Change the second letter of the first word from a U to an A. The result will be a new two-word phrase, naming something you don't want to be seen in. What is it?
There are so many clues given in this puzzle (letters, word lengths) that you don't need any help from me. But I will say, one word is short for another word...
Edit: "Hey bartender, give me a light. No, I mean..."

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.
