Bar Cost is 20%

 

Note:   

a) When you making cocktails menus you have to study the location then you can adjust your beverage mark up and your marketing flow. Marketing flow is designing for low and high price of the product in the market.

 

b) The Standard Markup of Beverage is 19% to 25%, and marketing flow are defending against the feasibility study of your business, The Given % of 100 percent is designed to get your selling price in the right direction. This technique was always used in the five star hotels

 

c) You can use the formulas for actual bar operations; just adjust what is the best for your business selling prices.

 

d) In actual bar operations, i am not agreeing to use direct percentages of the selling price likes times 500% or more, because, you cannot control the marketing flow of the market.

 

e) By using formulas you can make menu planning for every 3 month or up to 6 months without losing business.

  • When making cocktail menu, you must study location and adjust beverage mark up and marketing flow. Marketing flow is a percentage for low and high price of the product in the market.
  • The standard markup of beverage is 19% to 25%, and marketing flow is defending against the feasibility study of your business, Given Percentage is a percentage of 100 percent to be used as calculation/ deviation to get your selling price in the right direction.
  • You can use this formulas for actual bar operations; just adjust the best for your business selling prices.
  • Direct percentage caculation of the selling price likes times 500% or more is not recommended, "because, you can't control the marketing flow of the market daily/weekly and monthly
  • By using this formulas you can make menu planning for every 3 month or up to 6 months without losing business.

Note No.1:
 
 
  • To have some knowledge on how to get the alcoholic content of every bottle of liquor, liqueur and wines please find 
 
below example.
 
Example: 
 
Formulas
 
  • One bottle of JW Red Label - 1 litter with 40% vol.
  • 40% vol X 2 = 80% alcoholic content in one bottle of JW Red Label - 1 litter
  • For every one bottle of JW Red Label - 1 litter (1,000 ml) Approximate with 20 shots of 50 ml per shot
  • 1,000 ml  /  50 ml = 20 shots
  • 80% alcoholic content / 20 shots = .04 Approximate Blood Alcohol % per shot of JW Red Label
  • 04 Approximate Blood Alcohol % per shot of JW Red Label
 
 
  • The computation is the same to all other spirits and wines, just follow the guides and you can get the Approximate 
 
Blood Alcohol %

The Three Bucket System

 

The Three Bucket System

This is a procedure for washing, rinsing, and sanitizing where a different bucket and sponge or mop is used for each task.

 

In washing:

1) For example, one bucket with water and soap/ detergent, is used only for this purpose and will not be used for rinsing or sanitizing.

 

For Rinsing:

2) Another bucket with water only, will be used solely for this purpose.

 

A third bucket:

3) Containing water and a sanitizing solution shall be used for sanitizing only.

 

There are color-coded for the purpose of easy recognition and minimizing mistakes.

 

For example:

The red bucket may be assigned for washing, white for rinsing and gray for sanitizing.

The liquid are changed frequently so as to maintain the consistency of the solutions.

A litmus paper test should also be frequently done on the sanitizing solution to ensure its effectiveness.

 

The three bucket system may be expanded to include the use of three separate sinks for each of the three tasks.

 

Namely,

Washing    - Red Mark
Rinsing      - White Mark
Sanitizing  - Gray Mark
 
 
 
 

Important points to three bucket system

 

a) The main task done in this system are:

Washing with water and soap/ detergent

Rinsing with water

Sanitizing with water and sanitizing agent

 

b) The use of a different bucket for each task.  This will also include a different sponge or mop for each particular task

 

c) Color code the bucket for easy recognition  so as to minimize mistakes

 

d) This system includes the use of a separate sink for each different task.

 

e) Hot/ cold water is used depending on what is being cleared for utensil or other food handling tools use hot water. The temperature will defend on the company standards.

 

f) Allowable sanitizing solutions are

5% solution household bleach: one oz. for four gallon of water or 100 parts chlorine to one million parts water.

5% solution quaternary compounds: two oz. for four gallon of water

 

g) Change solution often to maintain consistency

 

h) Use Litmus paper to check sanitizing solution. If paper turns blue, it is okay. If grey, it lack concentration needs to be replaced

 

I) After sanitizing, drip and air dry or place in dryer

 

j) Don't use towel or cloth to take off moisture or water. These themselves are healthy homes of bacteria and viruses and will negative whatever sanitation process you had made sure. This technique may make your glasses look sparkling clean. But are they sanitized?
