A bit of my work... training and coaching can be lots of fun!
Loved teaching waiters new selling techniques, the walk the talk,
informed suggestions and make'em guests feel special all the way!
It isn't always about money, though this would clearly generate...
...sometimes it's good to let the guests enjoy a new experience:
an added value on the otherwise "all same, same all"!
Souvenir Glasses in Restaurants
Dinner service Iced Bottles & Special Drinks:
Set up, Presentation and the Revenue generated
upon selling with a different approach.
Creating good looking presentations by using ice blocks with fruits and leaves embedded
in ice, gives a good opportunity to target the gests at their table. The appeal and cooling
sensation of the bottle and ice assembly will generate drink orders, to be served only in
souvenir glasses, all charged as “premium”
The idea is to offer something different, apart from regular after dinner presentation of
souvenir glasses on waiters tray. It adds to guests experience and it improves the
revenue in bars, efficiently up selling cordial glasses.
DRINKS & ICE BLOCKS PREPARATIONS
A bottle preferably with rum must be placed in a S/S wine chiller (mold) filled
up with water the night before service. Add lemons, mint leaves and other
suitable decorations to make the ice- bottle assembly as appealing as possible.
Molds thus decorated will be stored in a freezer till next day dinner time.
The rum or vodka in the bottle will prevent cracking and breaking.
The ice block will be easily removed from wine chiller before the service starts
if hot water is poured on the outer side of the mold, it will come out cleanly by
pulling the neck of the bottle out. The cocktail mix is prepared a day in advance
in a gallon and kept in the refrigerator for the next day. Once the bottle and the
ice block are removed from the mold the cocktail is poured in from the gallon.
The assembly will look fresh, cool it will draw a lot of attention in Restaurant,
guests would like to see it and ultimately are curios to taste it. Waiters need to
explain recipe and price, so they must have a speech learnt to explain the offer
and what makes it so attractive!
Two waiters will present the drinks together with a full tray of souvenir glasses
in DR by visiting each table and suggesting the guests to try it, the one holding
the ice will have a couple of napkins to help protect hands from cold ice.
Here are two examples for what the presentation would look like!
