Imagine you’re on a date with someone who seemed perfect to you. But things got a little weird suddenly. What will you do to save yourself from the situation? A bar in St. Petersburg has come up with a perfect idea to save women from sexual abuse and date rape. 

The Iberian Rooster developed a secret code for their customers to use in case they find themselves in a dangerous situation while on a date. If a woman walks to the bar and orders an ‘Angel Shot, the bartender will comprehend that the woman is in danger and seeking out for help. 

A poster at the bar informs the customers that no situation is too tricky to handle for the angel shot. It says: 

“Is your Tinder or Plenty of Fish date not who they said they were on their profile? Do you feel unsafe, or even just a bit weird? We’re here to help. Just go to the bar and order an angel shot.”

How this drink is going to help women? 

There’s a secret code which is assigned to each type of shot. Ordering the shot in certain ways will alert the staff that you’re in a need of help. If you order it ‘neat’, the bartender will escort you to your car. If you ask it with ‘ice’, he’ll call a taxi for you. Ordering it with lime will make the bartender call the police. 

This way women would be able to get out of bad situations without being embarrassed or feeling unsafe. Anyone who’s been to a bad date must know how tricky and unsafe It feels to be with a wrong person. As the technology is rising in popularity, it’s getting easier for people to meet new people online. Sometimes, its good but other times, the perpetrators find their way to the victims. 

For such situations, angel shot is for your rescue. I hope that India takes a cue from St. Petersburg and introduce such kind of discreet safety measures at Indian pubs and restaurants.
