- Sometimes two straws are given because one straw is so skinny and the flow is too slow. Particularly with drinks that have a lot of crushed ice -- or that are a little more viscous -- it can be frustrating to drink out of. But long drinks, like collins and fizzes, one is usually fine.

If you're asking why bartenders put straws in cocktails for you to drink, that's because they usually have a garnish or ingredient that you don't want your lips consistently touching. This ensures that the guest doesn't get annoyed and catches the full aroma and flavor without an overpowering garnish in their nostrils or directly on their lips.
Those “straws" are actually drink stirrers. They are common at bars because of the need to stir mixed drinks. They are shorter than regular drinking straws so they fit the kinds of glasses used for most alcoholic drinks better (they don't fall out as easily). They also happen to be hollow so they can be used as straws.
