Don't wave money, yell drink orders or interrupt.
Bartenders have a constant to-do list in their minds. They're making drinks, taking orders, closing tabs and doing floor service all at the same time. Don't cut them off from talking to another person; don't scream your order at them and walk away. You'll get your drink.

The other day at a local bar while I was having a single Absolut on the rocks with a twist (some days I have two), a friend told me about his annual physical.
This is a moderately expensive procedure for a man of sixty, so he thought, Why not be honest?
When the doctor, pro forma, asked him how many drinks he had a week, my friend said, “About one hundred.”
This is not an acceptable answer, needless to say. “You know, some days just a few pops,” he said, “but then a couple of days a week I’ll have thirty or so, then taper off to fifteen.” This is a remarkably sturdy fellow, of middle-European descent with a biggish body, no liver or kidney damage.
I don’t know about his brain, though I did considerable study in brain physiology for a novel.
In conversation he functions mentally at least as well as, maybe better than, our president.

HENRY CLAY INTRODUCED THE DRINK TO WASHINGTON, D.C. IN 1850.
The U.S. senator from Kentucky supposedly made the mint julep popular in Washington, D.C. at the Round Robin Bar. By some accounts, the bar at the Willard Hotel still uses Clay's recipe to this day.

“I have this disease late at night sometimes, involving alcohol and the telephone. I get drunk, and I drive my wife away with a breath like mustard gas and roses. And then, speaking gravely and elegantly into the telephone, I ask the telephone operators to connect me with this friend or that one, from whom I have not heard in years.”
