Passionately creating premium frozen seafood and vegetarian products since 1988 JULY 2017 39 RAISE THE BAR RAISE >> Keeping your bar well stocked is very important, you don’t want to run out of your guests’ favourite tipples during the night. Making sure you have all the ingredients for your cocktails and all your wines, beers spirits etc is essential and watch out for that ingredient that is not a fast seller or that is easily overlooked. The chances are you’ll be asked for it on the busiest night of the year while two of your colleagues have called in sick and you have a reviewer at the bar! A good way to keep your bar lean and mean is to keep track with your best sellers and do away with slow moving items. Try and use seasonal ingredients and, if you plan a change on the menu, test the new cocktails by using them as specials for a while to see what works and what doesn’t. Make sure your bar has a speedrail, enough fridge space and a freezer to keep those cocktail glasses frozen. Don’t forget the ergonomics: the less the bartender has to move from his/her station to get things the more he/she will be able to give great service to your guests. Keep your bar and staff informed with the latest products and trends by organising regular training with brands and by visiting shows like Imbibe, Boutique Bar Show, and the If you plan a change on the menu, test the new cocktails by using them as specials Northern Restaurant and Bar Show. Also publications like Class and online magazines like diffordsguide, cocktaillovers, Spirit Business and Imbibe are all aimed at informing and educating on all things bar-related and are good to go to for keeping abreast of the latest trends Luca Cordiglieri, president of the UK Bartender’s Guild for a while for vegetarians and flexitarians...
