I am triggered the way they make perfect ice and then waste it


raven_fire87

It’s just to chill the glass isn’t it? Would make more sense to put the glass in the fridge before making the drink so you don’t waste the ice eh.


Obvious_Sea5182

Ya but that's not as cool. Lol


TheSandMan208

You're right. It would be *cooler* if they did put in the fridge.


Azalus1

You are technically correct.


doodlesmctoodles

The best kind of correct.


FragileNerd823

Take my upvote and go away


belizeanheat

You don't want the stem to be cold

raven_fire87

I also used to work in a bar and when we had to make the ice ourselves so it all adds up to an increased electricity bill for making the ice. I can see it both ways. But you don’t make drinks this way all the time, once in a while. Takes a couple of mins to freeze a glass.


Orellin_Vvardengra

It’s to help mix and dilute the alcohol. Not in a watered down gotta save money way but to make a good drink. How To Drink on YouTube is actually pretty nice to watch and Greg the host explains some things as he makes drinks and what not. It’s a pretty fun channel and I love his editors “tasting notes” that she puts in for him.


ambroseb80

Innit


Gabe_Does_Stuff

Nah. You would make the handle part too cold. You only want to cool the bowl part


solsangraal

doesn't he know there's a severe ice shortage


ckreutze

Yeah and it's not a particularly effective at cooling the glass down either, poor contact area and poor conductivity of the glass.


belizeanheat

It's noticeable. The big thing is the glasses are often room temp or even warm. As long as you can cool it down a little it makes a difference


SulfuricDonut

Probably a bit of a placebo effect. The thermal mass of the glass is pretty insignificant compared to that of the liquid being put inside it, especially if the ice isn't even cooling it much below ambient. Within a few seconds of that drink being put in, the glass will have taken on it's temperature anyway. Like when you pour hot coffee in a cold mug. The mug heats up a lot more than the coffee cools down.


el_torko

Literally came here to say this. I want that big ole ice cube too.

Also using a cheap plastic press and cutting directly on the wooden bar top, that ruined it.


Originaltankster

And then the other bar tender slips on the ice and breaks their neck


SuumCuique1011

"That'll be $74.99. Cash or credit?"


morenadoll

Exactly! All that labor to make that drink 🍸


CageyOldMan

For real, just give me a strong drink and skip the performance


myconoid

Clear ice to chill the glass is a major flex


awildgostappears

That ice was so beautifully clear. Huge flex.


raven_fire87

I spent more time watching Tom & Jerry on the TV in the background


my_chaffed_legs

Lmao I didnt even see that why is tom and Jerry playing in a bar, even a home bar. I mean I can't blame them tom and Jerry is good.


Her0_0f_time

Good episode too. Its the one where Tom chases after Jerry.


dudewithbrokenhand

One of my favorite episodes. Its called "Mucho Mouse" and it's where Tom the American mousing champion gets flown to Spain to help get ride of Jerry Mouse, the bullfighter. My favorite line is, "Yo lazy!? Señora, you have hurt me here!" [Mucho Mouse](https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7ujgna)


raven_fire87

My favourite episode is the one where Tom tries to frame Spike for eating all of the food in the fridge and Jerry takes a photo. Tom spends the rest of the episode trying to get all the photos back lol


oddllama25

I can promise you, with 100% confidence and my hand to god, that I would have stabbed myself in the back.


toriaces

There's a few subs that'd like to see that


karoshikun

so would I... with the spoon. I am that dexterous.


TeaTimeAbyss88

That zest squeeze!


thehuttonattor

For me it's when he spikes the lemon with the knife.


Dr-Rjinswand

I know it’s all a show and a part of the novelty of going out and getting a fancy cocktail, but fuck, watching that ‘shaking’ actually wound me up.


LordAwesomest

Should watch "how to drink" on YouTube. It's kinda like binging with babish except with alcohol. I love the slo-mo shaker shots he does. Plus better than these Chinese tik tok bar videos, he actually tells you what's in the drink.


justjokinbro

I wish he would throw that ice cube on a side plate so I could pick at it


suttbutt2014

My.guys watching tom and Jerry!


Glad_Selection5831

Just make my drink already.


ivylass

Here's your drink. That will be $45.


bowtothehypnotoad

All that work just for somebody to down it in two gulps and go back to partying


Mrbadvibez

By the time he's done with the drink I don't want to be an alcoholic anymore


Mrbadvibez

Ok Tom and Jerry will keep me occupied


Kaboose456

Fuckin hell all the whiners in this thread "StOp wiTh tHe tRiCKs. mE wANt dRiNk nAoW" Piss off


Longjumping_File_756

People are so serious


poopyshitballz

I could watch this guy all day.


srcarruth

you have to, that's how long it takes to get you dang beverage!


iforgotwhatiforgot

When I rule the world the first new law is separate queues for people ordering cocktails It will be enforced by martial law. Never again will someone wait half an hour for a lager and lime because the twat in front of them just ordered 7 strawberry daiquiris Not under my iron fist


srcarruth

How about self-serve taps, y'majesty?


cohonan

I just want a pint in a cold glass, move over to the cocktail queue for your lime in a lager.


poopyshitballz

Hahaha! True, but I guess good things come to those who wait. He’s probably keeping folks from getting DiWis at that pace.


ChemicalFun1308

he does it with such skill and precision


TheDoorDoesntWork

Better pick up that ice cube before it causes an accident


Voldemort_II

I like how he got tom and jerry playing in the background


nejicanspin

The combination of the music and mad skills is just 👌


johnthrowaway53

Man I hate flaretending more than I should. Honestly, I hate all pretentious things just to be pretentious


existential_wetdream

All this goes out the window when you're in the weeds


thenameisjukebox

Wonder how many things are broken behind the bar


Bardemann69

Can i get a side car? Ohh nice big piece of ice, wait why are you styring the ice? Why are you now juggling, i just want my drink! STOP throwing things, u just want my drink please it been an hour now please sir! Ohh finally your done Sha... MY ICE! Why did you do that that was perfectly good ice! I'm done *turns and walk out*


llamas1355

I thought the same thing! How much of the bartending school these people go to is just playing catch?


ratolloko

Stop the Harry Potter shit and give me the fucking drink. Seriously, who likes this shit?????


TeaTimeAbyss88

I do. It's entertainment. If you don't like it don't watch it. Pretty sure you can find any other ordinary bar where they'll just throw your drink together as fast as possible.


Kaboose456

Lmao then go to a normal bar not a cocktail bar. Let people enjoy their show you grumpy fuck


CutiePopIceberg

I'm with you. That was skillful no doubt. But a bit much for a friggin sidecar. With all that show id expect an original cocktail


newtoreddir

There are a million other bars you can go to that won’t do this.


Haunting_Ad_9842

Flair* not skill Who knows Drink could taste like shit, he has flair, not skill, true skill resides in one’s ability to make a drink well, not flashy


CitizenHuman

Makes sense for a bartender competition or something, but I'm not waiting 20 minutes for one drink to be made.


13thirteenlives

God damn it I hate this so much, if I wanted cirque des Soleil, I would have bought tickets to that.


Articularis-Gnu

The man has the moves.


Snaffoo1

Uhhh……I’ll have one please!


Simple_Negro

I nutted


kamui_85

“I ordered this cocktail 35 minutes ago”…


YourMomThinksImFunny

Why did he stir the single ice cube?


karoshikun

to cool the glass evenly


karoshikun

all good and fine, the guy is a bona fide expert, yaddah yaddah, but what's the recipe for that drink? looks nice.


NoticesSomething

Sorry not sorry, shit just fails for me when I see them stir....ice


Aikah89

Awesome skill. If that was me i would most definetly slip on that piece of ice he/me threw...


grandskamp

Damn, I bet that’s refreshing AF.


V3N0M0U5_V1P3R

Anyone else notice the Tom and Jerry on the TV in the background? Lol


dickjokemachine

And then the drink tastes like ass


ProperGanja21

....I said 1 coors light.


gh0st0ft0mj04d

Yeah! Fuck that ice cube!


6Bad-_-Karma9

Hacker


Historical-Mud4937

Turns around and slips on the ice cube


galtright

Just give me the fucking beer!


aggravated-asphalt

Everything in fancy bars look SO dang fancy. Except the lemon juicer. They’re all the same tacky color. It’s always my favorite part of these cocktail videos, spot the lemon juicer I have In my drawer! They’re so out of place and it’s amazing lol


Beando13

That’ll be $800


ValuableYellow4971

And in the meantime I’ve made 20 drinks and 20 times the amount of tips than this guy with his flair.


[deleted]

People need to stop trying to come up with the most unnecessary way to do things. Like I dont want to go to McDonald’s and have my server doing this shit to my burger if sis’s. The trend is already over we already got two super cool things (salt bar and ice cream guys from Turkey). Can we go back to doing things in the most simple way please.


SouthWestWicked

Wow


Invest_in_Cholula

Vodka diet with a lime, please


medieval_mosey

Such a spectacle in such a shitty looking bar. Like watching Cirque in a Burger King.


TheSealLife

shaken, not stirred


Bella_Yaga

Cool now do it with no video cuts


alaric11

Ahh yes. Make sure to stir the ice cube. This shit is so cringey. Just put the liquid in the cup jeez.


potato333-sk

Asians are skilled


golfer888

So many unnecessary movements


prince_of_romance

So to be a good bartender you need to learn circus arts first


Accountant706

Wonder the amount of broken glasses to reach this finesse lol


bakedjalapeno

I bet this dude would be incredible with a balisong


Psychological_Pea970

Am I the only guy that just wants my drink I ordered and don't Wana watch it take 4 times longer to make than if you did it yourself.


Mecmecmecmecmec

If you’re filling jobs based on ethnicity, for bartender I’m going Japanese. Who should I pick for janitor?


newtoreddir

Isn’t this guy Chinese in Harbin?


DesperateforDrivers

This looks snazzy and all but I’m trying to get drunk


karoshikun

you don't go to a high-end cocktail bar to actually get plastered. too expensive!!


smokymebud

20mins for ur shitty tasting drink that cost $22. Just dump this in a cup and serve it, jesus


kdbfg4

Why the slow mo shake… but the TV is moving normal speed.


ecwaddell

Not impressed… that’s nothing more than a bar version of Benihanas
