Par Excellence provides an excellent guest drinking experience. Our members know a wide range of drink recipes and are able to mix drinks accurately, quickly, and without waste. Bartenders are required to measure the liquors accurately with proper equipment, however, still must work quickly to handle a large quantity of drink orders and be familiar with the ingredients for special drink requests. They are also able to use carbonated beverage dispensers, cocktail shakers or accessories, commercial strainers, mist or trigger sprayers, and ice shaver machines. In addition to mixing and serving drinks, bartenders stock and prepare garnishes for drinks and maintain an adequate supply of ice and other bar supplies.

Traditional Western table service has several types and sizes of spoons, forks, and knives. Larger spoons are for soup, while smaller ones are used for eating dessert or stirring coffee. All place settings have a standard-sized dinner fork, while smaller forks are used for salad and dessert. Steak knives as well as duller, butter-type knives for bread may also be included.
The term flambé is a French word meaning "flaming" or "flamed." Flambé means to ignite foods that have liquor or liqueur added. This is done for a dramatic effect and to develop a rich flavor of the liqueur to the foods without adding the alcohol. Impress your family and friends by serving a flambé dish.
