Bartender Chapter 47 – I Suppose It’s a Bit Too Early For a Gimlet

Whew! Finally finished volume 6 of Bartender.  Just to put things into perspective.  Bartender is currently at volume 12, and is still going strong.  Not sure when I’ll ever catch up, but hopefully I will get there someday.

Update: Nevermind… Just realized they’re already at Volume 17 (!!)





Drink of the Day:


  • 45 ml Gin
  • 15 ml Lime Juice

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

I always like to see storied that’s focused on Kyouko.  I like to watch characters improve in a manga, and since Sasakura is already god-like in almost every sense, Kyouko became an important piece in this series.    She seems genuinely disturbed that Sasakura is so much better than her, even though Sasakura have way more experience than she does.  This was only evident the first time Kyouko met Sasakura, but I think that competitiveness lingered on.  Although she was already surrounded by bartenders who are far more skilled than she is, since she works at Bar Minami, at least those bartenders were much older.  She can’t swallow the idea that someone at Sasakura’s age can be that great, and that’s her greatest motivation right now.  At least that’s how I’m reading it.

There’s not much of a moral to this story.  It illustrated how difficult it is to make a simple drink like Gimlet.  I think like all manga, what Sasakura said was a slight exaggeration.  I really don’t think bartenders think that much when they’re making drinks.  I guess what Sasakura is trying to tell Kyouko is that she needs to put more thought into shaking, and not just copy how it is done at a mechanical level.  I think this is very true for anything art or music-related.  You have to put your soul into your work, and Sasakura obviously sees bartending as an art.

    Thanks for the chapter!
    And I’m assuming you meant ch.47 not 46 in the title?
