TIPS AND TRICK IN MAKING COCKTAIL OR ANY ALCOHOLIC DRINKS

In making a mixing drink, first take ingredients with a low cost so that if you make a mistake, you can start again with a lost drink.

How do you float brandy or liqueur?

COCKTAIL

To make the brandy float above the crème de menthe or another liqueur, tilt the glass slightly, insert the teaspoon with the back or the butt of the spoon faced up, and pour the brand slowly over the entire surface. To make a six-color pausse café, first enter 1/6 Oz grenadine. Add the stir bar, usually using a teaspoon or a long bar spoon. After that, pour into the surface of the teaspoon whose butt is facing up carefully. The elements are as follows:

  • 1/6 Oz creme de cacao
  • 1/6 Oz crème de mente
  • 1/6 Oz Maraschino
  • 1/6 Oz crème Y’vette
  • The top one is cognag

Wipe the top lip of the bottle with wax paper when opening the cognag to prevent it from dripping. Further prevention so that whiskey does not spill when poured is to move a little shock towards the right or left with the lip of the bottle a little more elevated from the butt. When opening the soda, tilt the bottle to preserve the sparkle.

Use salt and water to wash beer glass. Soap water will cause the cognag beer to unfavorable condition which might result in flatten beer, where the beer is not bubbly. It is wise to wet the beer glass with ice before pouring the beer to prevent the beer from becoming flat.

To open a dark red wine bottle, so that the sediment does not interfere, or to open a stubborn cork or cork bottle cap, squeeze the neck of the bottle under a protruding circle with the clasp of the bottle and connect it to the base and heat it for about ½ minute. After that, wrap the neck of the bottle with a cloth soaked in cold water. The cork or cork lid from the bottle will jerk out by itself.

Do not fill the wine glass whose contents stay ½ glass of cold white wine with white wine that has not been cold because it will reduce the enjoyment and freshness of the wine. It is not wise to decant two different types of red wine by using one decanter because the second wine can lose the true taste of the wine

Keep in mind that to separate the egg white from the yolk, which is when you want to make a cocktail, it should be done in a practical, agile but flexible way. Crack the egg by hitting the center on the edge of the glass and then dividing the two with the same part and removing the yolk from one part of the skin, transfer it to the other skin so the egg white comes out and goes into the space provided underneath.

MOCKTAIL

To make a cocktail or mixed drink, the egg is always put into the mixing glass first before liquor because if the egg is in bad condition, we still have a chance to discard the egg and replace it with a good one before we pour spirits into the mixing glass.

What is meant by the frosted glass is a glass that is made very cold. The glasses for the frosted drink are stored in the refrigerator or immersed in fine ice. For sugar frosted glass, moisten the edge of the glass with a piece of lime before it cools. Immerse the glass into a large bowl filled with flour sugar. Do this twice and then tap to release the excess.

All cocktails must be filtered before serving. Use a wire strainer, not a silver strainer. The ideal filter used at home is one of which uses tongs and let the wire cross over the glass. The filter is mounted on the shaker with the thumb at the top. Hold it steady with the other finger holding the bottom.

Sugar or syrup is always put in the shaker before liquor. Flour sugar is used in recipes in other circumstances. Normal syrup is not recommended, except according to the type or usefulness. Flour sugar can dissolve quickly and cause a slightly bitter taste in the cocktail. Always provide regular syrup, not only under certain circumstances. When making Old Fashioned, prepare and store or put what will be served in the refrigerator about one

hours before serving. When the time comes to be served, then just add whiskey. Drinks will taste better, comfortable and fresh when the glass and fruit or juices are really cold. For frosted mint yulep or very cold Mint Yulep, prepare the ingredient in the glass with ice cube crumbs, keep the glass in soft ice and stir until the glass is really cold.

WHAT’S THE MEANING AND EXPLANATION OF BARS/PUB/CLUB

Experts say that the word Bar comes from the word barrier, which means barrier. What is meant is that the guests who come to buy and enjoy drinks with the concierge staff – mixing drinks are limited by a barrier commonly called a bar counter, so that guests are not free to enter the place where the officer is. The meaning of the counter itself is a barrier table that limits two rooms, namely the room where the bar clerk works with the room where guests sit and relax while enjoying a drink that is served.

The term bar was originally known in North America in the XVI century. Now the term is becoming popular throughout the world.

red wine

This is how to serve a glass of red wine, and the procedure is as follows:

  • When carrying a guest shirt wine bottle, the bottle should not be turned upside down or shaken.
  • Bring the wine bottle in the same position as it was stored to avoid mixing sediment with the wine.
  • Store and place wine basket on gueridon with other tools.
  • The wine label should face upwards, towards the guest. Take the basketball wine containing the red wine bottle, show the guest to allow the ordering guest to inspect the wine bottle before opening. This is necessary to prevent voids or order cancellations because of misheard or lack of understanding when guests order it to the waiter or captain.
  • Show the wine bottle to the host or guest who ordered by showing the bottle with the label facing the guest.
  • The left-hand holds the bottleneck while the right-hand holds the bottle buttocks. Open the bottle of wine with the bottle still inside the basket wine. Cut a layer of lead which is curled under the lip of the bottle.
  • Work carefully and carefully. Remember not to shake the bottle because the sediment will mix with the wine.
  • Place the tin layer above the bread & butter plate
  • To make it look clean and attractive, and also to prevent dirt from entering the bottle, after the lead lining that closes the bottle is opened, wipe the tip of the bottle with a napkin and then carefully insert the corkscrew into the cork. Insert the corkscrew into the middle cork cover, rotating it upright as deep as possible into the cork.
  • Lift the cork cover gently, slowly, but surely, do not lift it by surprise because it will cause the wine to spurt out.
  • If we open it with an old corkscrew that is simple in shape, after we pull the corkscrew to remove the cork, then when the cork basket is still in the bottle approximately one centimeter left, we pull the cork carefully by hand to carefully avoid shocks that can make the wine squirt. Remove the cork lid with your left hand holding the basketball wine firmly.
  • Kiss the cork lid after removing it from the bottle 3 to 4 cm from the nose.
  • Place the cork lid on a stainless mat or bread & butter plate that has been covered with a small paper napkin.

  • After the guest smells the cork of the bottle cover, store the cork in the wine basket.
  • Clean the lips of the wine bottle with a napkin. We better use a paper napkin to clean the lips of the bottle because napkin, especially those that are white when exposed to wine, will be difficult to clean.
  • If necessary, after the red wine is opened, leave it for a moment to give the wine a chance to breathe / compound with oxygen in the air.
  • Pour a little red wine into the glass of the host or guest who ordered to be tested/tasted in advance.
  • Pour from the right of the guest by lifting the wine glass with his left hand.
  • The guest or host will taste the wine that has been poured into the glass to find out the condition of the wine he ordered. After the host says okay, we say thank you. Or can we also ask beforehand whether the wine is good enough?
  • Serve the wine starting with the women first or the person sitting to the right of the guest acting as the host, then walking around counter-clockwise. The host is the last to be served.
  • Store back the basketball wine that still contains the wine above the gueridon with the label on the top facing the host. But it can also be basket wine was placed on the guest table to the right of the host.

Keep in mind that you have to serve cold white wine, the wine glass must remain left on the table, not be lifted. White wine is served in a very cold state. The procedure for serving white wine is slightly different from red wine. Previously, we had to check the tools we were going to use if everything was completely available on gueridon. These tools are as follows:

  • Wine cooler
  • Wine stand or wine cooler or base for napkin coated white wine bottles.
  • Napkin linen
  • Paper napkin
  • Silver underliner or bread & butter plate
  • Corkscrew

white wine

Take a bottle of white wine from a wine cooler to show to guests who order, and this is how:

  • Fold the clean and tidy napkin into a square, and then hold it with your right hand.

  • Show the bottle to guests, with the label facing the guest
  • Give the guest a chance to check the wine bottle if it is what he intended.
  • Put the wine bottle back into the wine cooler. The position of the bottle in the wine cooler should be the mouth of the bottle away from the host so that the host can see the bottle label.
  • Cut the lead layer that covers the lip of the bottle with a knife found on the corkscrew. Cut the lead layer just below the protruding lip of the bottle.
  • Clean the lip of the bottle with a linen napkin.
  • Insert the corkscrew as deep as possible. Place the fulcrum or the point of the corkscrew dock on the lip of the bottle to make it easier to pull out the bottle cap.
  • Remove the cork cover carefully and never do it hard because the wine might shoot out.
  • Stop pulling the corkscrew if the cork lid remains 1 or 2 cm in the bottle.
