Similar. We were at an asian place near a music club on Carrollton about a year ago and wife and I went to the bar and I asked them how does it rate his OF and he said, I do an awesome job.

Was bourbon and cherry juice with a cube.

It became a principal thing at some point.

I ordered a Tanqueray martini once and watched the bartender pour one jigger of Vermouth and two jiggers of Tanqueray into an old fashion glass filled with ice. I drank it because the bartender was cute and I was buzzed, but it was as far from a martini as you can get.

I almost sent it back out of principal, but felt like I would have to spend the next 10 minutes explaining how to make one...and really wasn't feeling that. Good on you

This happened to me at Commander’s Palace. I called over the head waiter. He damn near cut back flips apologizing. He seemed legit embarrassed. The next one came out right and free.

I've posted this before on here I believe. This was great and I loved the response of the bartender.

I hit a local Irish pub with my stepson one afternoon and I ordered a pint of Guinness and when asked what he wanted, my stepson said "Stoli and Dr. Pepper" and the bartender just looked at him and said "NO".

I almost fell out laughing-------then he settled for a normal cocktail.

re: Worst cocktail blunder you ever experienced
in High school (yes... a long time ago) I was working at a country club as a life guard and they were having a big party at the club that night and needed help, so they asked me, helped set up etc and as the night progressed I just filled in where needed and ended up in one of the satellite bars next to the pool (I had no idea how to mix a drink) so I was handing out beers etc but the mixed drink line was getting long so the other guy working with me told me to figure it out (count to four makes an ounce , just listen to what the customers tell you and we will make a shite ton on tips), so I am making some pretty stiff drinks cause it takes me a little longer to get to four, and start learning a few specialty drinks and we run out of vodka, guy comes and asks for a bloody mary and I had been making them all night when we had vodka and now we were out, so they had a bottle of rum and it looked like vodka so surly it was close.... nope he almost vomited and had some choice words.. the guy working behind the bar with me could not stop laughing

When I was bartending, got to my shift at 4 pm and immediately had one of the waitresses bring back a drink that was supposed to be a Mint Julep (my favorite). The daytime bartender had taken green creme de menthe and mixed it with bourbon.

Ordered a whiskey and sprite at a wedding reception once, the bartender proceeded to pour sprite into a cup with Pepe Lopez (cheap tequila).

Didn't notice it when she poured it, but it actually wasn't that bad.

Was in Disney World this past week. Went to California Grill on top of the Contemporary. Ordered an Old Fashoned. The waitress asked if I wanted it on the rocks or neat. I looked at her with a long pause and said I’d like ice in it please.
It came to the table with very little ice, no cherries of any type, no orange twist or anything. Not sure what was actually in it.

I am leaning more and more to having a business card made up with directions how I like my OF

That really dont sound like a half bad idea. I need at least start speaking up and just tell them to stop when I see fruit getting muddled

This is a great thread!
I absolutely love an OF but am often reluctant to order them cause you never know how it will come out. Cannot stand it when they are sweet or taste like a coke from to much bitters.

Funny story, wife and I own a burger joint with a full bar. We have an attorney who comes in and orders a high dollar pour of scotch mixed with milk. Makes me want to puke just typing this.
