19 #DrinkingFails We Can All Relate To

By

We all fail at drinking sometimes. You find a gorgeous cocktail you want to make on Pinterest or work up the courage to order the layered rainbow drink at the bar and, thanks to klutziness, cocktail karma, or some other unseen force, it just doesn’t work out. A #drinkfail is sad when it happens to you, but when it happens to someone else, it’s hilarious—especially if there’s photo evidence. Here are 19 devastating drinking fails we can all relate to.

When you accidentally drop something into your drink...

When you think something will taste so right and it ends up oh, so wrong.

When the “bomb” bombs.

When sake bombs go wrong. (The sound on this one is great. Check it out)

When you take chilling your beer just a little too far.

When your bartender takes your drink order too literally.

When the expectation does not meet the reality.

When the drink you order doesn't look like the promo photo... . The top picture is from #billboard's website depicting what the "Love in the Dark" cocktail should look like from @patinagroup's @kendallsdtla in honor of #adele's album 25 & the #grammys; however, the bottom picture is what I was actually served...such a disappointment in terms of presentation. 👎🏻 . Instead of distinct layers of frothy egg white atop activated charcoal + gin & garnished with a colorful edible flower, I received what looked liked foamy, blueish-grey dirty water. Hopefully I can find another place serving a cocktail made with activated charcoal before I decide if I like this trend of black cocktails. . #PlymouthGin #lemonjuice #lavendersyrup #activatedcharcoal #eggwhite #lacocktails #laeats #lafoodie #musiccenterla #kendallsbrasserie #213eats #cocktailfail #didntlooklikethepicture #notevenclose #whatadissapointment #dtla #dtlaeats #cocktail_qtpi_feb2017 #80likes
