TIP OF THE DAY
If a guest orders a drink “straight up,” that could mean one of two things. They may want it “neat” (served from the bottle at room temperature) or served chilled. “Straight” = a neat pour of dark spirits, while “up” and “straight up” typically mean a white spirit that is chilled with ice (shaken or stirred) and strained into a glass (typically a cocktail glass). Example: Martinis.
