Being specific

Patrons if you want to increase your chance of getting the drink you want.

Be specific.

Ask for [name of drink], [rocks or up], [stirred or shaken], [other options]. For example Manhattan straight up stirred and you shouldn't be disappointed.

In a previous post, drink variations, I said that everyone should be speaking the same language with drink orders for classic cocktails. Well it would be this way in a perfect world, but that is not where we live.

Bartenders can't read your mind and if you know what you want... tell them.
