Swansea, UK - A toddler in became intoxicated at his 2nd birthday bash when he was accidentally served whiskey instead of juice.

Little Sonny Rees was innocently celebrating his 2nd birthday with family at a Frankie and Benny's restaurant, sipping diligently on a cup of what he (and the family) thought was juice, reports MSN. His mother, Nina Rees, realized the mistake after Sonny had nearly finished the drink. She recounted the incident:

"We went to the restaurant just after midday and I had ordered him lime juice and water, his favorite. The drinks arrived and I was encouraging him to take sips because he was eating salty things. We had finished our first course when we noticed he was pulling a face as he was drinking. I took it from him and took a sip myself. It was whisky, I would say a double. As soon as I sipped it I had the slight burny feeling in my throat and warming in my chest. Sonny had taken about 10 sips - he was obviously intoxicated."
"I immediately went into a panic and a rage - I was crying my eyes out."

A Frankie and Benny's spokesman said: "The company is incredibly sorry for what happened. It was a human error and we are putting measures in place to ensure it never happens again."

Because drunken 2-year-olds can't help a restaurant's reputation.
