Ohio woman: Outback server gave daughter, 4, booze

An Ohio woman says her 4-year-old daughter was served a slushy alcoholic drink at an Outback Steakhouse near Cincinnati.

Kelly Kerwin tells WCPO-TV (http://bit.ly/rtDGeJ) that her family was waiting to be seated when a waitress offered them little cups holding drink samples. Kerwin says they asked the server if there was any alcohol in them and the woman said no.

But she says family members later checked with the restaurant manager and found out the drinks did indeed contain alcohol _ peach schnapps and vodka.

The manager apologized and didn't charge for the meals. The TV station reports Outback's legal department released a statement saying that the server was fired and that it sincerely regrets the mistake.
