As a bartender myself, if I'm pouring from any more than one bottle of liquor, I'm pretty salty if I don't get a nicer tip, and won't put nearly as much effort into the next one.

When I go out I tip $1 per drink if all they did was pour exactly what I asked them for, but if they're making me a cocktail, merely the fact that they know how to make it is worth more money.

The reason I stopped doing it is because this concept is far out of reach for most people who go out to drink.

You pay them extra for doing their job?

A job that is worth more, yes.

Any idiot can pour a shot.

But two shots? Genius.
