Ask A Bartender: What Do You Drink Behind the Bar?

Editor's note: Welcome to Ask a Bartender, in which we chat with folks in the industry about what really happens behind the bar. Got a question you want answered? Leave it in the comments!

Some bartenders stick to lemon water, or bitters and soda... until, well, 9:00 p.m. or so. Some rely on light-bodied beers for a smooth ride through the night, while some start on Negronis and switch over to Scotch. And some will take a shot with you—or name a shot after you.

What do bartenders drink behind the bar? We asked a few of them to find out.
