You’re usually ordering cocktails? Check these words and make sure what you’re taking next time.

  • Muddled – a cocktail that contains mix of crushed veggies, fruit and herbs
  • Float – a liquor addition on the top of a cocktail. Really artsy!
  • Virgin – cocktail drunk by v…anyone. It’s just that it doesn’t contain alcohol.
  • Highball – cocktails served in highball usually contain soda and have liquor as a base
  • Toddy – hot cocktail with strong alcohol such as whiskey
  • Dirty – contains olive juice

Ice: yes or no

  • Neat – you’re ordering a beverage without ice
  • Easy ice – a drink with a pinch of crushed ice or very little amount
  • On the rocks – If you tell this to the bartender, expect a glass full of rocks. No, expect a glass full of large ice cubes.


Extras – additions in cocktails and beverages

  • A splash/dash of – a small amount of additional ingredient
  • Make it double – you know this one, don’t you? How many times in a single night do you order double liquor?
  • A well one – It means that you need a drink, but you also need some extra, which you don’t have at the moment of ordering so you’re asking for a well beverage (the cheapest drink on the bar shelves). We’ve all been there, no worries.
  • Top shelf – here comes the shelf that makes all the other shelves jealous – this is the part where the bar keeps the most expensive bottles.
  • Chaser – an additional small palatable drink to help you ‘wash down’ the previous strong one. Usually, it’s a glass of beer, light beverage or a non-alcoholic drink.
  • Keep it open – Favorite phrase to any bar owner – the drinker is ready to leave his heavy cash at the bar. Or, you can say: take my credit card/cash and give me all the drinks I want. Cheers, fighter!
