Tipping on a gifted drink - bartenders?

emmaroseeats | Aug 8, 2008 02:31 PM

When out drinking at a bar, I occasionally get gifted a drink from the bartender, for what I assume (confirmed on at least 2 occasions) is appreciation that I am patient, polite, ready to order & clear my glass(es).

My question is: I always over tip when this happens. Should I? Or is it insulting to the person gifting me a drink? I would especially like to get bartenders' takes on this...
