A bartender has left their followers divided after filming the way she shut down a customer who asked for no ice in their drink on the assumption that would mean they got more alcohol instead.

Anyone who's ordered a drink at a bar knows there's often nothing worse than paying for an expensive cocktail, only to find the glass is filled with more ice than it is with liquid.

Then there's also the issue of how watery that drink gets if you don't sip it quickly enough and the ice melts down into it, so there are many reasons why asking for no ice would be a completely valid choice.

However, one bartender who goes by the name Jemima June on TikTok, has left viewers divided with the way she shut down a customer who assumed no ice meant more alcohol in the same glass.

See the moment below: 

Jemima filmed herself handling a customer's order after they asked for no ice when ordering a tequila cranberry drink.

The customer could be heard yelling "no ice" again over the loud music before Jemima paused to look up at them and tell them: "Just because you say no ice, that doesn't mean you're going to get more alcohol."

She then informed the customer the only way to get more alcohol is to order - and pay for - a double, telling them: "That means you're going to get more alcohol."

People took to the comments to share their opinions, with many sticking up for the customer by writing: "never once in my life have I expected more alcohol when asking for no ice... doubt anyone has lol."

Others added: "Maybe he has sensitive teeth and doesn’t like ice touching them???", and: "you couldn't put some more cranberry juice?"

Another joked: "Bro just give him more it’s not like it’s coming out of your paycheck", while someone else added: "Maybe She could’ve put more juice? I’d be mad if they give a cup half empty."

Some people were on Jemima's side, however, and believed she'd acted accordingly when dealing with the customer, adding: "To me, she was more than polite. She's super sweet and was in no way out of line."

Others wrote: "She wasn’t even rude that’s just how bartenders talk", and: "1000% FACTS hated being asked this in bars and getting attitude when they didn't get more alcohol! Ya want more drink at home we tryina make money!"

Someone else commented: "This 'attitude' is justified because she has to explain this a million times in one night."

While no ice definitely doesn't mean more alcohol is added to the cup, an extra splash of mixer to fill the glass probably would have appeased the customer pretty easily.
