# Why are her drinks stronger?

I went out for a drink with a friend. I met her there. I guess the bartenders know her. They made her drink way stronger.

Why? Mine was weak compared to hers. Why are here so much stronger just because they know her?

Bartenders have been doing this for generations. No big deal.

She probably wasn't too drunk!

That apparently must be the way she likes her drinks, and either asks for them that way, or they know she likes strong drinks and just makes them that way for her.

Did you stir it if it was served with ice cubes. By stirring it, you dilute the drink.

If you watch bar rescue, the place is going to go out of business if the bartenders are giving her more alcohol because she tips better or whatever. A bar makes profit based on how many drinks it serves. By giving even half an ounce of alcohol more, it cuts into the profit.

Suppose you have a 20 ounce bottle. A drink calls for 1 oz of alcohol. That’s normally enough for 20 drinks. Suppose the bartender gives an extra .1 oz, so 1.1 oz. per drink. 20/1.1 = 18 drinks. The bar loses profit on 2 drinks (tips goes to the bartender and not the bar). Imagine if it was a 750 oz bottle.
