Many people like to unwind by going out with their friends to a bar or club after a long workweek. There’s nothing quite like dancing, music, drinks, and fun to take your mind off office stress. You might even spend your whole Friday anticipating your go-to drink order or deciding what new cocktail to try.
Before you order though, there are some things you should know, straight from the mouths of bartenders who’ve had their liquor license Houston TX and have been serving drinks for years. There are some drinks they advise that you just don’t order.

Any drink containing milk or cream is risky. Not many drinks call for these ingredients, so an open container might not get used up before it expires. Therefore, if the bar staff isn’t keeping a close eye on this rarely-used ingredient, you could be getting a drink made with entirely the wrong kind of sour! You’ll be throwing up from more than just the alcohol after that.
Unless you’re at an upscale club or VIP room, wine or sangria at a bar is ill-advised. Not only will you look like a bit of a snob, but you’ll be getting the worst wine possible. A cramped space like what’s behind the counter at the types of places you’re probably going doesn’t have room to keep wine properly chilled, and no one wants to drink warm wine.
This is fine at a restaurant or a slow, quiet bar, but never at a packed weekend club. Order this only if you hate your bartender and your fellow patrons. Crushing mint and shaving ice take a lot of time, which can overwhelm an already backed-up bar. You’ll be waiting a long time, and so will everyone behind you.
With these handy bar tips in mind, go enjoy your well-deserved weekend night out.
