    At the risk of sounding like the Roman centurion in Life of Brian, that’s not how you say “Hold my beer” in Latin. “Teneo” is the first person singular present indicative, but here you want the singular present imperative for “hold”, “tene”. And, “mea” is the feminine singular nominative form for the adjective “my”, but you need the accusative form to agree with “cervisiam”, so “meam”.

    “Tene meam cervisiam” is what you should have said. Now, write it 100 times before dawn, or you-know-what.
