Do not sneak drinks
slavist
Croatian translation:As my colleagu pointed out ..
Explanation:
there are two different meanings:

1. sneak in / out = unositi / iznositi OR unijeti /iznijeti krishom (kradom, kriomice, kradomice, potajno); (fig)krijumchariti

2.sneak = to take surreptitiously, steal; <like in "to sneak a smoke">

ukrasti, (informal)zdipiti, gepiti, dignuti

I hope this helps.

The best of luck.

Two interpretations are possible:

1. Nemojte kradomice unositi pića
(I would prefer this one)
2. Nemojte krasti pica.

Nemojte potajno unositi piće.


Explanation:
This is one of the possible explanations. For example, bartenders might sometimes sneak in drinks that were not acquired by the owner of the pub or a restaurant and sell them off the counter to earn more money on the side.
The other translation might be "Nemojte krasti piće."

To be absolutely certain of the right translation, one would need a bit more context.

I hope this will help you.
