When it comes to cocktails, Simon Ford is the guy to know. After earning a Wine and Spirits Education Certificate in the UK, he went on to work for Seagrams and now holds the heady title of Global Spirits & Cocktail Brand Expert for Pernod Ricard USA. For real, it’s on his business card. In Simon’s weekly column, Drink Ford Tough, he tells you everything you ever needed to know about the art of the cocktail. And how to drink better.

Tipping brings you good karma — it’s just a fact of life. And bad tipping, or a lack of tipping, can lead to a short pour, unbalanced drinks and just poor service. Do you want that? We didn’t think so. Tipping is a way of showing your appreciation for the bartender. That said, it’s not always clear what you should tip given your location.

From crowded dive bars to table service to cocktail lounges — where bartenders spend three or four minutes to make your fine cocktail — tipping has gotten complicated. On top of that, the bartender might give you a drink on the house (what do you do then?) or you may be abroad and not know the local etiquette. There’s no doubt that navigating tipping culture can be confusing for even the most experienced drinkers.
