Brooklyn Restaurant Creates Separate Drinks Menus For Men And Women, With Less Alcohol For The Ladies

A restaurant in Brooklyn, New York, has created separate drinks menus for men and women, with significantly less alcohol in the drinks created for the ladies.

Although the menu was originally created ‘to make people laugh’, management at Los Pollitos III say that it was inspired by those women who ask for ‘fruity, easy to drink’ cocktails. Do they ask for an umbrella in them, too, we wonder?

The Mexican restaurant serves the ladies the lower-percentage alcoholic beverages, such as wine, while the men receive the stronger drinks, such as tequila. The Mexican Ice Tea has tequila, rum, gin, vodka and Kahlua, which sounds, er, extreme.

A bartender at Los Pollitos III told that women don’t like strong stuff, so the ‘drinks for women are sweeter, with less alcohol.’ They do have a gender-neutral menu, including mojitos and mai tais.

Neighbouring business-owner Karin Torres said: ‘I think it should be the other way around. I am much more comfortable around drunk women than men.’

Torres owns a wine shop called Corkscrew, which sells wines made by female winemakers. We somehow doubt they are trying to create lower-alcohol wines for women.
