Woman Says Slug And Lettuce Cocktails Are A 'Scam'

It can be devastating when you fork out for a cocktail with the girls and it turns out to be a disappointing drink - it's enough to dampen any Happy Hour.

Which is why we're especially shocked at this TikTok video alleging that a certain establishment's cocktails are a "scam."

Watch the video below for the "proof":

As you can see, it doesn't seem like you're getting your full money's worth by any means with 'two for one' taking on an entirely different meaning.

It's also worth noting the sneaky use of "snail and cabbage" in the video.

If you haven't heard of the 'Snail & Cabbage' chain of pubs before, that's because it doesn't exist and is instead often an alternative tongue-in-cheek name of a Slug & Lettuce restaurant.

In fact, if you google "snail and cabbage" into Google, the first result that pops up is the Slug & Lettuce homepage.

Therefore, most of the people in the comments have assumed the TikTok video creator, @emilyjanepalmer, is talking about when you get a Pornstar Martini from a Slug & Lettuce.

There were a lot of comments agreeing with the sentiment of one user who replied to the video: "you're paying for a measurement of alcohol not a full glass".

This is in reference to how establishments selling alcoholic drinks have legal requirements for the specified quantities in cocktails. Specifically, gin, rum, vodka and whisky are only allowed in measures of 25ml and multiples of 25ml, or 35ml and multiples of 35ml (not both on the same premises).

Other comments weren't sympathetic with the video creator.

One person commented: "Cocktails are usually small in measures and usually are expensive - what's the problem if u don't like it go somewhere else".

While a second wrote: "what makes me laugh is if bars filled the glasses it wouldn't be with alcohol it would just be with more juices and syrups which is more of a scam".

What do you think? Scam or not?

Stonegate Group have been contacted for comment.
