Bartender Cracking/Breaking Ice in Palm

viperlush | Apr 7, 2014 02:03 PM

BF and I were at a bar known for their cocktails (drinks $10+). I noticed one of the bartenders holding ice cubes (normal size) in his hand and whacking them with a spoon to break them. He then dumped them in the shaker and continued to make the drink. Didn't see him wash /wipe hands before or after.

Is this normal/acceptable bartender behavior or is it a reason not to return to this bar?

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.
