We all know that bartenders have a tough job– dealing with a thousand orders at once, consoling that one patron who never seems to leave (and wants you to know, sincerely, every single detail of his life), and of course handling the occasional bar fight. Imagine, on top of all that, a bar tender who makes a fully-customized, mood- and preference-based cocktail for each and every person in the bar. While it might sound like a nightmare (to those of you who are already keeping pretty tough hours as a barkeep), the Brooklyn-based bar that actually does it is more like a dream come true. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, or WTF for short, uses its very own ipad app to take drink orders depending on the customer’s favorite liquors as well as their current demeanor. And, because it’s Brooklyn, the bar uses only its own house-made bitters and syrups, ensuring that whatever you end up drinking is unlike anything you can find elsewhere.
