Mom sues Applebee’s for $75k after 5 year old served Long Island Tea

Something about this story stinks.

Pereles said she did not realize her son was drinking a concoction of white rum, gin, vodka, triple sec, Coke and sweet-and-sour mix until it was too late. The boy’s eyes became glazed and he began to laugh uncontrollably

I’ve mixed many Long Island Teas and the best of them never tasted like anything that wouldn’t make a 5 year old sneer. As a parent, I am acutely aware of what my children are being served and if alcohol passed near our table, I’d smell it! I feel like restaurants are simply targets for scammers looking to make a buck off a lawsuit. Perhaps restaurants need warnings from the surgeon general “Warning! Food here is prepared by fallible humans. Despite regular inspections, health hazards such as fingertips in the food or incorrect orders may occur. Cranky, complaining customers are at greater risk. Eat at your own risk.
