This drink is more commonly called by it’s abbreviation for obvious reasons. It stands for “F*** Your Bartender” and no surprise this drink belongs to the era of naming drinks after terms generally associated with sex. Today, it is far more common to hear this drink called a “Sex with the bartender”. Here is an early but recent printing of this drink:
Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood by Koren Zailckas in 2006

This drinks name most likely refers to the feeling you have after drinking one of these, considering it’s contents. There is not much conflict in early literature regarding it’s contents. Unlike other members of the Crown family, this drink not only calls for 1 popular brand name, but four;Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Bacardi, Malibu.
Like the other members of it’s family this drink was originally served as a shot and because it contains so many ingredients, it often is made and drunken in groups, rather than a single shot. The sex with the bartender has more recently taken a dramatic change and most likely because it has been commonly associated with the Sex on the Beach rather than the FYB, which has always called for the same ingredients.
There is no location associated with this drink and it was not created by any of the companies for which their products it contains. It is also undetermined when exactly this drink was introduced into modern american drinking culture, however, it appears to be one of the earliest and certainly one of the more popular shots of this group. This drink is still arguably popular today.
This drink dates between 1989 – 1996 and contained at least as of then:
