I’m a bartender – stop assuming that asking for drinks with no ice will get you more alcohol
A bartender has sparked a debate after calling out a customer’s attempt to get more booze in his drink by instructing her not to put any ice in it.
Jemima June, who works at a club in Nashville, Tennessee, left people fighting in the comments after she posted a TikTok of the customer interaction this week.
In the viral clip, which has since racked up more than 7.3 million views, a reveler can be heard asking for a tequila cranberry, with ‘no ice’.
They repeated their request for no ice, which Jemima assured him had been met, before asking: ‘Do you want a DOUBLE tequila cranberry?’

‘Just cause you say no ice doesn’t mean you’re gonna get more alcohol,’ she explained. ‘Double, that means you’re gonna get more alcohol.’
While most were supportive, some accused her of giving ‘side eye’ and insisted that they just enjoy their drinks less frosty.
‘OK but sometimes we just want more drink, not more alcohol, so we don’t finish our mainly cup of ice in 5 seconds,’ one wrote.
‘Lol when you literally just don’t want your drink getting watery,’ another added.
A third person quipped: ‘Lemme get no ice without the attitude.’
However dozens backed Jemima, saying it was obvious that the customer was ‘pulling a fast one’.
‘The people in the comments pressed about this would NEVER survive as a bartender,’ one commenter remarked. ‘This is so accurate.’
‘Us bartenders know exactly what no ice means,’ a second person added. ‘You knew instantly your face you’re like okay no ice got it.’

They also pointed out that Jemima’s attitude was perfectly cordial, despite the customer’s repeated yelling of instructions.
‘Y’all are trippin she was nice about that,’ one user penned.
Another TikToker said: ‘As a bartender in a HIGH VOLUME setting this is not even being rude. It gets frustrating being yelled at when you are doing what they ask.’
‘The ppl saying you have an attitude clearly have never worked in the industry,’ a third reassured. ‘It happens CONSTANTLY & these customers need to be lectured.’
Some were shocked that the point even needed reiterating.
‘Blows my mind that we still have to say this,’ one added.
Jemima has some 975,400 followers on TikTok, with her bartending videos racking up more than 43.6 million likes.
She has in past gone viral for her incredibly quick ability to open beer bottles, having once opened five in less than three seconds.
