Check out this hilarious, yet depressing, clip from DrinksTV in which Miami nightclub bimbotender, Andrea, explains how to make a Woodford Reserve Mint Julep, which as she helpfully explains, "...is like a Mojito, but with bourbon."

While this isn't specifically about tiki drinks, I think it speaks volumes about the general decay in bartending skills all over the US.

After reading the recipe, I felt like I needed to go brush my teeth to scrub off all the sugar.

That's disgusting. Maybe she will work at T.G.I.Fridays someday.

"Don't forget to add your Sprite."

WHA!?

I think she's Chotchkie's material, but first she'll need to find some room on that skimpy blouse for at least 7 pieces of flair.

As bad as that drink was, it looks like a Trader Vic's Mai Tai in comparison to the mixological nightmare that is Where the F*ck Did I Park My Car. I think the 3 hootchie bartenders cost extra.

I like that she doesn't even think the drink is very good at the end, she sort of backs off, it must reek somethin' awful.

And that final Limp Mint Sprig doesn't want to go in, she has to jam the thing in against it's will and it immediately dies a miserable death, hanging over the side.

Poor frickin' Mint Sprig.

I'm pretty sure that was the girls in the 2nd clip.

Oh God, this happens so often, it makes me sick. Almost every chain restaurant murders mojitos, juleps, Mai Tais, etc.

I especially hate it when they do "their take" on drinks and come up with abominations like a Blueberry Mojito.

Wow.

This reminds me of the time at this crappy Adams Morgan DC bar that I ordered a Blue Hawaiian and got Sprite with Blue Curacao in it.

That sounds like it would crack your teeth. And if DC means Washington DC, the drink probably wasn't cheap.

Yeah, Washington, but the drink was only about 5 dollars. I mean, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I wanted either.

I would guess no. When I bartended in college at a new restaurant, we went through 4 days of "training". We never picked up a bottle in the whole 4 days.

I already knew a thing or two, and there was a real, professional bartender in our crew who taught me a lot more. Thank God, cause the training was useless.
