10 Popular Drinks Bartenders Can't Stand

This cocktail contains a mix of several different spirits (vodka, tequila, rum, gin, and triple sec), along with sour mix and cola. It's potent and can lead to overindulgence.

1. Long Island Iced Tea

While not necessarily disliked, mojitos can be time-consuming to make, especially when the bar is busy, due to the muddling of fresh mint leaves.

2. Mojito

This bright blue cocktail is often ordered for its vibrant color, but its sugary taste can make it less appealing to some bartenders.

3. Blue Lagoon

This fruity and sweet cocktail is popular in beachy locations, but it can be seen as a bit cliché and is often ordered by customers who may not have a specific preference.

4. Sex on the Beach

Bartenders may find this overly sweet and sometimes consider it a "girly" drink stereotype.

5. Appletini

This classic cocktail made with sloe gin, lemon juice, and soda can be seen as outdated or not in line with modern cocktail trends.

6. Sloe Gin Fizz

Blending this drink can be time-consuming and cleaning the blender afterward can be a hassle for bartenders, especially in a busy setting.

7. Piña Colada

Combining an energy drink with alcohol can be concerning for some bartenders due to the potential for overconsumption and the associated risks.

8. Red Bull and Vodka

Similar to the Piña Colada, the blending process and cleanup can be time-consuming. Additionally, it's often ordered en masse, making it less appealing during peak hours.

9. Frozen Margarita

These simple drinks are often seen as uninspired choices, and bartenders may prefer to create more complex and creative cocktails.

10. Black Russian/White Russian
