Hey all. When selecting the option to "order drink for" a chosen sim, my sim will either try to make a drink behind the bar only for it to cancel because the bartender is in the way or they never place the order. Tested on multiple saves, followed the troubleshoot, reset the game and tested on a blank save, the issue was still there. Even though I've kept the game updated, I haven't played in a while so I can't say for sure where the bug first started appearing. I do not use custom contents or mods.

This happens for me, too. Choosing to "Order Drink For..." another Sim, they have an interaction together, as if they are talking, "Hey, want a drink?" and the recipient Sim appears to agree, but then the order is never actually placed. The interaction simply ends. The only way to order a drink for someone else appears to be adding them to a group, and then choosing "Order Drinks for Group". Really wish the functionality of ordering a single drink for a specific Sim would be fixed.
