Description

Encourage them to drink alcohol. For example you can:

  • Ask them what they want to drink (not if they want a drink).
  • Get the first drinks order early, before taking their food choices.
  • Ask the person who seems most likely to want a drink first.
  • Promote bottles of wine rather than glasses of wine.
  • Watch for empty glasses and ask if they want a refill or another bottle.

Discussion

When people drink alcohol, they usually become more open to suggestion, such as to have more wine or to order more expensive items, which of course increase the bill size and hence the tip size. They also become more friendly, which also can lead to a bigger tip.

Lynn (1988) found that people who drunk alcohol were reliably more likely to give a bigger tip, although noted that not all studies agreed with these findings.

Of course you need to be careful about not encouraging drivers to drink. While they are responsible for their own actions, if you know or suspect someone is driving (eg. car keys on the table by them) then avoid direct encouragement.
