Bartender warns customers they'll be judged for ordering double vodka tap water
| Last updated
Bartenders are making a stand online against some people's drink orders, and vodka with tap water has joined the hit list.
One American bartender took to the video sharing platform to show her followers how to make a Long Island ice tea, but in the process admitted she thinks it's 'insane' that the drink has so much liquor in it.
"When you come up to the bar and you order a Long Island [ice tea], the first thing I'm thinking is, 'Is everything ok? Like, is everything going on alright in your life 'cos why on earth would you want four different liquors in your drink?'" she said in the tongue-in-cheek video.
"You are getting rum, vodka, tequila and gin all mixed in one. That's just insane."
Now another bartender has shared their thoughts on the controversial drink that is vodka with tap water.
I still remember working behind a bar myself when someone ordered this and I was floored that someone would genuinely want to drink the two things together. Like, come on guys... a splash of lemonade isn't that expensive.
In the new video shared by nightclub PRYZM in Portsmouth, a bartender mimics a voiceover while making a double vodka with water.
"You know what, I'm not judging you, but I'm just sayin' that everyone else is gonna'," the video says.
It was captioned: "No offence is you drink this but just NO."
Other people in the industry have since shared their own unusual drink requests they've received.
Someone said: "I work in a small village pub and a lady came at 12 on Tuesday and had a double vodka water with a slice of lime and the judgment exuded from my body."
"I remember getting asked for Havana and HOT water," shared another.
"Had a guy order two gin and waters at my old job," a third went on.
Another person added: "Guinness shandy was the weirdest I had."
While having water as a mixer is a controversial choice, some experts actually advise that you try it - but not with your usual Smirnoff.
It's said that water pairs well with some whiskeys and other 'high-quality cask-strength alcohol'.
According to food and drink site Slurrp, 'cask-strength whisky is often much stronger than standard bottled whisky, with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 50 percent or higher'.
With this in mind, pairing it with a small amount of water can help, well, water it down in a bid to make it more drinkable.
"Adding a small amount of water to the whisky can help to "open up" the flavors and aromas and make it more palatable and easier to drink," the website adds.
