Alcohol intoxication occurs when a person consumes more alcohol than their liver can metabolize. Alcohol and its components accumulate in the bloodstream, causing health risks. However, being intoxicated to the point where the signs are visibly apparent to everyone around you is called visible intoxication and is a cue for the servers to stop serving such a customer at once. Most server and bartending classes teach you how to recognize intoxication. To safeguard the patron, other customers, and your establishment from any harm, you should also have knowledge about visible intoxication.
