A 16-YEAR-OLD girl managed to fool bar staff that she was of legal drinking age by ordering a Campari and soda.
Nicki Hollis tricked the barman, who she feared was about to card her, at Revolution in Loughborough into thinking she was older by ordering a sophisticated, adult drink only enjoyed by mature palates.
She said: “I could see in his eyes that if I ordered a WKD or even a vodka and Coke I’d confirm his suspicions, so I had to think fast.
“I needed something cultured, something worldly, and when I ordered that Campari I saw the change in his manner. Suddenly it was like he was serving a 25-year-old. A woman.
“Unfortunately Campari is a bitter grapefruit liqueur which is absolutely hanging, so the second part of the plan – to get pissed – fell down a bit.
“Also I was stuck in the toilets most of the night holding my mate Hayley’s hair while she was sick. She’d had three Pernod and blacks.”
