In my ever changing efforts to control weight. This article came to my attention from my local Weight Watcher's Center.  (In case you are wondering, I am close to loosing 40 pounds. Thank you Weight Watchers !)

The research shows that bartenders with 6 or more years of tending bar. They 'over-poured' alcohol a "shot" (1.5 oz, or 44.3 cc) more than 20% of the time.  This is even after 60 minutes of practicing the technique of a consistent pour.  

So the next time you order a 'bartender' drink, just remember that your estimates of the calories you are 'drinking' may be UNDER estimated.
