If you’ve ever placed a drink order and gotten a look from the bartender that can only translate to, “what a tool,” then it’s probably time to rethink your choice of refreshment. To avoid looking like you don’t know what you’re doing and keep the bartender on your side, here are five drinks you should never order at a bar.
It’s one thing if a bar happens to have a B-52 or a Duck Fart on the menu, but if you walk into a crowded bar and request that a bartender make you a three—or more—layered shot because it “looks cool” or is “fun to drink,” then, sorry, you’re a tool. These shots easily take three to four times longer to make than a standard cocktail and, since they’re shots, they’ll be gone in all of two seconds, which means you’ll be back at the bar, demanding the bartender’s attention right after. Order a shot and a beer instead. You still get the same fast-acting effect, but with much less douchery.
