    no self respecting bartender would drink any of these

  • prufrock posted 9 months ago

    In the 80s we used to drink a LOT of B-52s, but they were (and are) made with Grand Marnier, not triple sec.

    In 1973, I had my first taste of Jagermeister from a pair of brothers whose old German grandmother in Cincinnati would send to them in Chicago to keep them in touch with their German roots. Loved it. They would dole it out very carefully, as it was impossible to get in the US at the time. When I started by first bar managing job at DB SEarle's in Minnesota in 1982, I saw it on the order sheet and ordered a couple bottles. My rep said that "no one drinks that except a few old German guys." In no time I was selling a case a week to the college kids. In 1982.

    Bartenders drink Vodka.

  • pj5555 posted 10 months ago

    I'm an old fart (81), 25 years of bartending and the only drinks I saw full time bartenders drinking was Scotch, and Vodka. When I see stuff like this makes me think you are catering to retail readers, not professionals.

    What bartender made this list? Let me guess, a 21 year old college kid.

    Yeah, I never made that kind of drinks. But I have one, it's called Standard Bar-back, Gin, Vodka, and Kahlua, on the rocks, in small tumbler. Cheers!

    Most bartenders are happy with just a beer and a shot. Nothing too complex (that means more work just after getting off work) Nothing frozen(same reason) and no instahangover. Jamo works, Rumpy works too. Some even love Jager. I can dig a B52(if it is made right!) No stinking T-sec, Use GranMa!!

    Oh bull$hit. No bartender on Earth would drink this crap. He might make it for a broad so as to get laid. But otherwise? Pure kidstuff. All that sugar combining with the low abv liquors is a recipe for a hangover. Nasty!

    Ummmmm.... what ?? What bartender ever orders these? If I were on a Cruise maybe but these concoctions were invented by the devil in an effort to make sure stupid people throw up after consuming stupid drinks. A Flaming DR Pepper , I mean really? I would never ask a fellow bartender to make me that garbage!


Are you smarter than
your bartender?

Think you know the booze?
Let’s start with some basics.
