It was a friend's birthday yesterday and a group of us ladies decided to go out for a late afternoon drink to a little place downtown on the water. One of the ladies ordered a gin & tonic but emphasized that she'd like just a little gin (they have a tendency to pour half and half here.) We drank our drinks and when it came time to go we began to break down the bill. We noticed the server had forgot to charge for the gin and being the good people we are, we let her know so she could fix it.
Well she explained to us that the gin was free because it was just a little .
I saw it and it was clearly a full shot in the cup.
Lessons learned -
Alcohol really is cheap here.
Next time I feel like a highball, order 'just a little' and the booze is on the house!
