Are you ready to order drinks?

Yes! We’re tired of drinking beer and wine. Do you have anything stronger?

We have cocktails and shots. How about a martini? They’re on special tonight.

A martini sounds perfect. I’ll order one of those, please.

Ok. And for you madam?

She wants something light and sweet.

In that case, I would recommend a margarita or mojito.

No, problem. Would you like a single or double-shot mojito?

Single shot. She is not a big drinker.
