Best drink to order when sitting outside on a hot summer day?

We make a drink that is very refreshing. It's Spinato Prosecco, which is sparkling wine, and we add Chambord and garnish it with a sugared raspberry. These are especially popular on the deck.

What the most difficult thing about closing at the end of the night?

Trying to get all my closing duties done in a very behind-the-scenes way. I don't want to disrupt anyone's good time by carrying racks of glasses that are clanking. And I don't want to give my guests the feeling that I'm trying to shuffle them out.

Any traditional cocktails making a comeback?

Yeah, I recently took a couple orders for a Rob Roy and a Snake Bite, which I haven't made in years.

What's the most hilarious thing you've seen happen in a bar?

One of the guests thought that we had short-changed him by $20 and he became quite irate. He started arguing with our manager and so we called the police. He got loud with them also all the while insisting that we short-changed him by $20. Well, it got bad and he ended up in the back of the cruiser. After he left we found a $20 bill on the floor next to the bar stool where he was sitting, so it either fell out of his pocket or he dropped it.
