We had fun with this today…It all started with “Belly on up to the Bar”
Saw this on ABC News 20-20 a few weeks ago and now whenever I order a drink (which isn’t very often…LOL) I do think about it.
4 ways a bartender can rip you off (not that it ever happens here)
1. Switching out expensive booze for the cheap stuff. Some bars will take an empty bottle of expensive liquor and pour a cheaper brand into it. You're more likely to get ripped off on something like vodka, as opposed to whisky, which has more flavor.
2. The "short pour." Using crushed ice instead of cubed ice gives the illusion that the drink has more alcohol. If they start a drink off with crushed ice, they can pour less alcohol into it.
3. The "long pour." This is that thing where they lift the bottle high above their heads while they pour. It looks like they're doing something special for you, and you're getting a stronger drink. But it's a distraction so they can pour a WEAKER one.
4. The "sneaky pour." They hold the bottle out over your cup for a really long time, so it looks like they're pouring a lot of liquor. But they're holding a finger over the air hole on the spout, so that the liquor comes out in a trickle.
You think any of these have ever happened to you? Better yet, if you watch Vanderpump Rules, you think Jax or Tom could be guilty?. I’m guessing they’re guilty of many things…but not any of these. Lisa just wouldn’t allow that!!! LOL
What is the moral of this story?
Stick to bottled beer.
