A pre-dinner drink can be omitted at a bar and offered at a table. It is called an aperitif: (an appetite starter.) It is to be placed to the right of all other glasses. In a commercial dining room, a pre-dinner drink is to be placed atop a cocktail napkin when it is served, rested or finished. It and the napkin can be removed after it is finished.
A guest may be heard to say, “Please order me a drink. I’II be right back,” or “Where can I wash my hands.” A guest could wait to do this until after reading or ordering from a reusable menu. Once someone does this, expect the next act: a visit to the bathroom; it is station six.
Which Drinks Mine
It is my wish to assist you in locating the drink which is yours and knowing which drink is mine.
1. “With each hand make an OK sign.
2. Place each hand on the table.
3. Left to right –“Where you see the “b” is the side for your
bread. Where you see “d” is the side for your drink.”
4. “Better yet left to right: bread left, drink right, solids left,
liquids right, foods served left, drinks served right. Now
about your BMW: (Bread, Meat, and Water, (or Wine,)” to this conversation say, "Good night."
5. That drink to your right is yours. This one is mine.
