Written By Scott Joseph On April 14, 2011

Both family chain restaurants Applebee’s and Olive Garden were in the news recently for accidentally serving alcohol to children. Both restaurants have apologized and promise it will never happen again, but parents are right to be cautious. Here then are the Top 10 ways parents can tell if their children have mistakenly been over served:

10. Asks the waitress what the 2-4-1 specials are.
9. Glass of “apple juice” has an umbrella and maraschino cherry.
8. Remarks that the grape juice has “a lovely bouquet.”
7. Orders fruit juice “shaken, not stirred.”
6. Sippy cup has a salt rim.
5. Complains to the server that the juice “tastes flat.”
4. Stares sullenly at his cup and mutters, “My teacher doesn’t understand me.”
3. Hands sippy cup to server and says, “Put a head on this, will you?”
2. Offers to buy a round of apple juice for everybody in the restaurant.
And the number one way to tell if your kid has been served alcohol at Applebee’s or Olive Garden
1. The kid says says, “You know, this food doesn’t taste half bad.”
