Bartender Glass 101 – The Hidden Ice





Drink of the Day:

Vodka Iceberg

  • 60 ml Vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pernod

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

Lots of the usual characters this time around.  Tsubasa is around, but he’s not the main focus this time, which isn’t so bad.  A good chapter with humor and a good lesson.  Even the most talented person would feel doubt at times about their own abilities.  It’s impossible to sail smoothly all the time, and I think a person’s values truly show when these situations come up.  One of the most important quality a person can have is resilience/strong will.  Can’t become great in something without it.  My niece is showing very little of that, and I think that’s true for a lot of kids these days.  I bought her a book of mazes for her birthday, and she would quit after running into a dead end 2~3 times.  I told her she can backtrack and try a different path, but nope.  She gets frustrated right away, and try a different maze.  She’ll probably get better as she grows older, but I just feel that resilience is harder to come by now, which makes it even more important.

The only thing I find weird about this chapter is that Kyouko got depressed after seeing two unfinished drinks.  Perhaps she just started to notice it after she became the sole bartender in the lobby, but I would imagine this is something that happens all the time.  There’s usually nothing wrong with the drink either.  It seems very natural for me to not finish a drink if I feel that I’m approaching my limit.  And I would think it happens more often at a hotel, since people are probably there to do business meetings, and they would want to control their drinking more than usual.
