Fake alcohol: New Jersey bars busted for selling rubbing alcohol as whiskey
Drink spiking: New Jersey authorities have cracked down on bars and restaurants serving fake alcohol to patrons after an investigation revealed some disgusting findings.
The year-long sting, codenamed Operation Swill, discovered dozens of businesses have been serving bogus booze.
Some even substituted rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring for whiskey, spiking both drinks and profits.
Others had passed off tap and river water as alcohol in mixed drinks.
Undercover officers with the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control secretly took samples before conducting raids on 29 businesses across the state.
Among the restaurants raided were 13 different T.G.I. Fridays franchises, all operated by the Briad Group.
