An Alabama couple came up with a cunning con to drink for free, new rules of engagement, if you will.
Corinne Miller and Adam Carroll staged fake engagements in order to get free drinks from strangers in bars.
Then the ''engaged'' pair moved on to another bar, where they pulled off the same scam again.It began when the pair went on a trip to Atlanta to celebrate her birthday just one month into their relationship.

Despite it being very early days, they decided to fake a marriage proposal in a bar in full view of other revelers who would want to celebrate the moment with them.

They even roped in one of the bartenders and another drinker to go along with the cheeky con to make sure it all went off without a hitch.

And it worked – they managed to bag free shots from several kind strangers who got caught up in the romance, and they even took the celebrations to a second bar where they were treated to more drinks to toast their 'engagement'.

“People started buying us shots and congratulating us – it was hilarious and definitely a great way to get free drinks. It has definitely been a whirlwind romance. We were best friends for eight years before we were a couple and that trip to Atlanta was actually one of the first trips we had been on together. I’m happy we did it – it definitely saved us some cash so Adam could get me a real engagement ring!”

Then, months down the line from their trip, Adam, 28, popped the question again, but this time there was nothing fake about the proposal as he got down on one knee in front of all their family and friends at his birthday party.

Corinne, 29, said yes for a second time: “We both have the exact same humor- that’s one of the main components of our relationship".
