Bartenders have revealed the drinks order stereotypes they give you based on what you order at the bar – and some popular choices have been assigned some brutal labels.
While it might not be fair to make assumptions about someone’s general character based on their drinks order, it’s certainly fair to say that bartenders see more of life than most during their shifts. As such, who is better placed to assign stereotypes based on your favourite cocktail?
Well, a Reddit thread has revealed just what your bartender is really thinking. Buckle up for a bumpy ride…
