"Can I See Your Mojito List?"

This question was uttered by the patron in front of me as I was almost at the front of a long line at a crowded bar. Not only did I consider the query a sign of the apocalypse, but I also knew that I just needed a simple beer poured for me, and I was stuck behind someone who wanted a time-consuming, muddled drink for her and everybody at her damn table.

Fortunately at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard, there is nary a muddler. In fact, they even have their anti-muddling stance clearly spelled out over the bar:

Thank you, Tractor, for keeping the line moving and the drinks simple. Is there any other bar taking a stand against muddling?

    While I am not a fan of the Mojito, there are muddled drinks I can appreciate (Old Fashioned, for one) so I’m a little disappointed by the Tractor’s attitude toward such drinks. On the other hand, ordering a complicated drink at a crowded bar is pretty thoughtless. One should tailor one’s drinking to the environment and the occasion.

    Yes, it is definitely not a place for fancy, complicated drinks.
