How To Serve Fresh Fruit Juice?

Purpose of this SOP:

An Increasing number of guests currently seek out healthier food and beverages, and freshly pressed juice has filled an important role in the beverage menu. Serving fruit juice the right way is as important as any other step in guest serving and demonstrates professional quality.

1. Prepare for serving the fruit juice:

  • A beverage tray.
  •  A clean tray cloth.
  •  Clean and correct glassware.
  •  A coaster.
  •  A straw.
  •  For serving fresh lemon juice: a saucer, a coffee spoon, still water in a jar, and sugar.

2. Placing the glass on the tray:

  • The serving glass should be clean, dry, cold, and well-polished.
  •  The fresh juice is prepared as per the hotel’s standard and poured into the glass without staining it.
  •  Straw is served in a sealed paper packet.
  •  For serving lemon juice, place the coaster on the saucer, put the glass on the coaster, put the spoon on the right side of the saucer, handle in the 2 o’clock position, and put the water jar on the tray.

3. Serving fresh fruit juice:

  • Always serve ladies first!
  • Always serve from the right-hand side.
  • With your right hand, pick up the coaster and place it in the 2 o’clock position of the guest.
  • With your right hand take the glass by the base & place it on the coaster.
  • Put a straw to the right of the glass.
  • While serving lemon juice, take the saucer with glass and place it in the 2 o’clock position of the guest, making sure the spoon does not fall.

4. Leaving the table:

  • Please enjoy your fruit juice (mention the juice name), sir/madam.
  •  Make sure you bring the right fresh juice to the right table.
  •  Don’t mix fresh juice with convenience juice.
  •  Don’t throw unused packed straws away those can be reused if not stained.
  •  Once you have served and are on your way back, pick up empty glasses from other tables and/or take new orders.
