When is it acceptable to send something back at the restaurant. If you want to try something new and find out you don't like it (assuming it was made correctly) when is it ok to send something back. If i know I don't like cherries and try to order cherry pie only to find out I have confirmed what I already discovered....do I have the right to send it back because I don't like it? Obviously I see people send drinks back all the time and am curious what everyone feels about this. I am interested to understand if this is more accepted for drinks or food, for high or low end establishments and what ethics and morals are involved for everyone. I personally have sent back one or two food items in my life, all of them were somehow "mis-prepared" so badly they were not edible.

So not many of you have tried beer cocktails, cocktails that start with champagne or even mocktails or (non alcoholic yet stylized drinks). In the upcoming blogs we will introduce some ideas that you may want to add to your repertoire.
Far to many of us omit champagne as an option for fancy, upscale mixology drinks. Sure we've had mimosa and love champagne but what else can it be combined with to create a cocktail?

3 oz of your favorite champagne, (we suggest something low in sugar)

One of the new shots you must try
The Breakfast Shot
1 oz Jameson
1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps
chill the alcohol and pour into a shot glass. Cut up a piece of bacon in 4 one inch pieces.
pour 2 oz of orange juice into another shot glass.
Shoot the whisky, then before you swallow put the bacon in your mouth and start chewing it up, finally wash it down the orange juice. It will blow your mind. If you don'thave bacon you can exclude it but I don't a
