  Part One Chinese Liquors and Wines

  C: Anything to drink, gentlemen?

  G: Well, we've been drinking cognac and whisky a lot. We'd like to have a change, but we don't quite know what to drink today. Can you recommend some famous Chinese liquors?

  C: What about Wu Liang Ye, one of the most famous liquors in China? It's made from five kinds of cereal. It's fragrant and it never goes to the head. Its alcoholic content varies from 38% to 46%, and up to 52%.

  G: Alright, we'll have one with 46%.

  C: May I remind you all the Chinese liquors are served by the bottle here?

  G: Any other brands of liquor?

  C: Yes, Mao Tai, Feng Jiu, Yang He, Xi Feng, Lu Zhou, etc……

  G2: I hear Great Wall Wine is a famous brand.

  C: Yes, it is. Would you like to try one bottle?

  G2: OK, bring me the white wine as well. Make sure it is well chilled.

  C: Yes, sir. A bottle of well-chilled white wine. Have you ever heard about Shaoxing Wine? It's a kind of still wine made from rice, somewhat like Japanese sake. Some Shaoxing wine is just good to health.

  G1: I believe it is, but you see we've got enough, we'll drink it next time.

  C: Yes, sir. So you've ordered one bottle of Wu Liang Ye with 46% alcoholic content and one bottle of Great Wall white wine. Just a moment, please, gentelmen.

  Part Two Mixing Cocktail

  G: What's today's special?

  C: House cocktail. It is a concoction of Remy Martin X.O. and ginger ale.

  G: Four House cocktails for the gentlemen and one coke for the lady.

  C: Excuse me, madam, here's your coke. (The bartender gets ready the glasses and ingredients and has the ice cube ground.) If you have your own way to make your favorite cocktail, just tell us the ingredients and we will try to make it for you.

  G: No, just follow your ingredients.

  (The bartender puts 3 ounces of Remy Martin X.O. and two dashes of ginger ale into the shaker, then adds two spoonfuls of ground ice and shakes it. Then he decants it out and decorates the glass mouth with a slice of lemon. Finally, he puts a piece of green olive into the glass to brighten the color.)

  C: How do you like it, sir?

  G: The color is beautiful and the taste is fantastic. It's fragrant and refreshing. Give us another round, please.

  C: Yes, sir.

  G: A technical job.

  C: Now decant the cocktail into the glass and decorate it with a slice of lemon and a piece of olive.

  2. Inter-bar Transfer

  With bar-stocks being maintained correctly, no bar should run out of an item during working hours. However, if this does occur, then that item can be obtained from the Main Service Bar or from one of the other bar outlets. The transaction is to be recorded on an inter-bar transfer form and signed by both bartenders. The empty bottle will be exchanged for the full bottle in order to keep the par stocks up to their original count. The inter-bar transfer form is handed to the Cost Controller by the issuing outlet.

  Beverage Service

  In the food and beverage service business, beverage service is extremely profitable. Many restaurants offer drinks as part of the complete meal service, but for many others drinks are the principal part of the business. There are different kinds of places serving alcoholic beverages. In the United States, the most common is a bar with a long counter and from the counter drinks are dispensed; a cocktail lounge usually has a bar, small tables, a relaxed atmosphere and minimal entertainment.

  There are three cases for beverages as part of the meal service in restaurants: before-dinner, with dinner, and after-dinner drinks. The most common before-dinner drink is the cocktail (such as gin, rye, and rum) and ingredients such as bitters, fruit juices, ice, and fruits. Some before-dinner drinks are unmixed, such as vermouth and sherry. These are usually called appetizers.

  Drinks served with a meal are usually wine, beer and cognac. The customer makes a choice from a wine list. Some particularly luxurious restaurants employ a wine steward or sommelier. They have information about the wines, take orders, and serve them.

  Liqueurs are served after dinner. They are usually strong and sweet.

  A special note should be made about water. In the United States, it is customary for the waiter to pour iced water for the guests as soon as they are seated, but this is not the usual practice in many other countries. In some, water is not served at all; in others, it is not iced; and in still others, a different drink is served, such as tea in China and Japan.
