A BAR employee has revealed how they deal with those who complain their drink is not strong enough.

With a sunny weekend ahead, some of us will be looking to go to a bar for a much-needed break and for a catch-up with their friends, or perhaps a first date.

But as much as we love a boozy night-out – all within limits, of course – we’ll also be familiar with how weak the alcoholic drinks sometimes taste.

Piles of ice, too much mixer and it feels as if you’ve just wasted £9 on a glass of juice.

This might be no surprise to bartenders – but according to one person working in the industry, they have a sneaky trick to deal with the unsatisfied customers.

The TikTok user @soberbartender19 took it to his social media page to reveal what really goes on behind the till.

Sharing his knowledge with a younger staff member, the experienced bartender showed him what to do when someone is not happy with their cocktail.

”Teaching the rookie how to deal with ”it’s not strong enough”,” read the text alongside the clip online.

Instead of pouring an extra shot like some would assume, the beverage whizz had a slightly different trick in mind – and it would for sure make you think the drink’s stronger than before.

Holding a glass of a refreshing cocktail, he grabbed the black straw and carefully poured in a clear liquid straight from the bottle.


Although he didn’t explain in the video, this means that the person drinking from the straw will be hit with the amount of booze, immediately concluding that the cocktail is now stronger.

Continuing in the caption, the bartender recommended another, more simple alternative.

”Order a double.”

The video has gone viral, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons, as many had an issue with the man touching the straw.

”Don’t touch my straw,” one demanded, to which another hit back: ”people saying “ew don’t touch the straw” have no idea what happens in the kitchen of restaurants.”

A fellow worker in the industry said: ”Someone told me I made the drink wrong. Demanded a new one.

”I took the exact same drink poured it into a new cup and she loved it.”
