It’s a common problem for bartenders, particularly if they’re dealing a group who simply want to get on the sesh and aren’t paying too much attention to the actual quality of the drinks.

But what is a bartender to do when their customers complains that their drink isn’t strong enough?

Well, TikTok user @soberbartender19 has shown off his bartender hack for exactly that eventuality.

The video shows @soberbartender19 demonstrating his technique to a “rookie” co-worker. The video is captioned “teaching the rookie how to deal with “its not strong enough””.

In the footage, he takes a bottle of liquor out and pours some directly into the straw of the drink in question.

Commenters seemed somewhat conflicted about the bartender hack on TikTok.

Some thought it was a clever idea, with one user writing “Lmao. I love that trick.”

“My favorite bar trick” another commenter wrote.

“Why can people not just order a double??”

However, others seemed less impressed by the video.

“Don’t touch my straw” one commenter wrote.

“Am I the only one cringing that it went on his hands into the drink?!” another added.

Others said that they often found they had the opposite problem – the drink was too strong for them.

“I on the other hand always find it too strong so I go order a sprite” one TikTok user wrote.

“Am I the only one that doesn’t want to taste the alcohol?” another added.

So how do you feel about the bartender hack? Clever idea, or not appropriate?
