“Dear Bartender, don’t be offended if we ask ’Is there any liquor in this drink?’”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic closed many bars and restaurants. Liquor stores were open, and people made their own drinks at home. Many of these drinks were less watered-down (more alcoholic) than in the bars.

“Dear Bartender, don’t be offended if we ask ’Is there any liquor in this drink?’ Please remember we’ve been making our own for the last 9 weeks” was posted on Facebook by Madera Wotm on May 16, 2020.

“Don’t know how I feel about bars opening back up. Drinks gonna be weak compared to mine” is a similar saying.
