5 things about drinking in bars you have got all wrong
Guys, there are some things we need to straighten out! It has been too many years now, we have been working in bars and STILL we hear the same old silly misconceptions about drinks and the bar industry. So we have compiled a list of our TOP 5 things we need the general public to catch up on!
Myth #1 - More ice means less alcohol
Actually, we would have to say the opposite is true (almost). The reason bars use lots of ice is NOT to rip you off, it's actually so your drinks stays cold, and the ice doesn't melt and turn your drink into a warm, soupy disaster.
If you are drinking something like a Gin & Tonic - It's basic physics, really. The less ice you use, the more mixer you need to use, the faster your ice will melt, the more diluted your alcohol will be.
Do you really want to drink a luke-warm, watery drink?
Myth #2 - Gin makes you cry
The only ingredient in gin that is going to make you cry is alcohol. Guys, if you don't cry when you drink vodka (essentially non-spiced gin) there is NOTHING except your own mindset that is going to make you cry.
Alcohol is a depressant so it makes scientific sense that drinking spirits may bring up negative emotions, but that's the alcohol....not specifically gin.
"I can't drink gin because it makes me cry."
