[TRANSCRIPT] – Bar Etiquette: How to Order Drinks at a Bar

Reese Richards from, with some ordering techniques.

So, you’re at the bar and you go up to the bar and you order from the bartender.

What you want to do is:

A/ make sure you know what you want to order

B/ Try to group all of the same drinks together.

You don’t want to trail off. You don’t want to order one….uh…uh…uh… and then order the next, and then… uh…uh…sorry…uh.  Ok? Respect the bartender’s time.

You want to mention martinis, you want to mention cocktails, mixed drinks, first.  You want to mention the beer and the wine last. Ok?

The real order of ordering the drinks isn’t as important as grouping the drinks together. So, what you don’t do is you don’t order a vodka cran, and then a bottle of Labatt’s Blue, and then a vodka cran.. and then…  You order two vodka cran and a bottle of Blue. Ok?

So group your stuff together, and if you’re ordering shots, guys… girls… if you’re ordering shots, please order all the same shot, or at most two different kinds.  Maybe six of one, six of another, ok?

Order all the same shots, because the bartender’s busy, and it takes a lot of effort to layer shot after shot after shot, ok? So, when you order shots, order all the same shots.
