In the bar world, we certainly have our fair share of venting to do. From customers string ordering to missing bar tools to a queue for muddled cocktails, here are eight things bartenders love to whine about.
1. Crappy garnish
If you’re charging $15 for a cocktail, you can’t garnish it with a slimy lemon or some droopy celery stalk. So, when you get a shipment of bad fruit or it’s the end of the weekend and supplies are running low, it puts bartenders in a pickle. We don’t want to use that mushy orange, but sometimes we have to make due. We try our best to make it work, but we’re going to complain about it all night long.
