Bartending Is Hard

Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
We went out to dinner tonight with kalmn and some other folks. monstersocks ordered a rum & coke and I ordered a kamikaze (off of the bar menu). The waitress wasn't familiar with the drink name. It turned out the bartender wasn't there so the waitress was making drinks and there was a limit to the drinks she knew how to make.

I figured I'd go for something simple and ordered a gin & tonic. She left, then came back later and reported she didn't know how to make that.

So, I picked a drink off the bar menu that she reported she knew how to make, a screwdriver. Two ingredients, how hard could it be? Anyway, she eventually showed up with my "screwdriver". It didn't look like it contained orange juice, although I would have believed some sort of Tang™. I asked what was in the "screwdriver" and she reported the ingredients: Absolut™ vodka, pineapple juice and grenadine. It was confusing but tasty.

It says it all in the name. Dude.

And most bartending type places have cheaty books. For those occasions when the usual bartender isn't there.

Silver lining? At least your drink was tasty.
