Although these might be your favorite drinks at bars, you may consider avoiding them in the future and finding an alternative.

Dirty vodka martini

Texas bartender Paul Tilton advises you not to order this drink, especially if you are in a cafe or other place that has a large selection of great drinks.

"if I am in an establishment with even a decently respectful beverage program. I feel like I am saying, 'I see all of this creativity on your menu here, but you know what? I just wanna be basic tonight," says Tilton.

Long Island Iced Tea

This cocktail is made from vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, gin, and a splash of cola.

"It's just a dumb drink that tastes pretty much only like cola, sour mix, and raw booze. It is somehow less than the sum of its parts," says Dan Adams, a bartender in Florida.

Anything frozen

Bartenders usually do not like to make drinks for which you have to use a blender because that means they will also need more time to clean and store. That’s why in their free time, bartenders never order anything frozen from their colleagues.

Florida waiter Conor Canavan explained that an example of such a drink is the Miami Vice cocktail. For the two components of this cocktail, two different blenders must be used before everything can be combined. If a cocktail is made for more people, Canavan points out that then it is not that much of a problem. However, making just one is quite tedious, writes Best life.
