    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You can free pour a Bourbon and Coke?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    You cannot free pour a Bourbon and Coke because free pouring refers to pouring alcohol without using a measuring device. However, when making a Bourbon and Coke, the ratio of bourbon to coke is typically measured to maintain consistency in flavor and alcohol content. Therefore, free pouring would not be appropriate in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You can free pour a vodka and coke only if you add a lemon wedge garnish?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that in order to free pour a vodka and coke, it is necessary to add a lemon wedge garnish. This implies that the addition of a lemon wedge garnish is a requirement for free pouring the drink. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If a venue sells a single measure at 25ml, they can only legally sell a double at 50ml?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In many countries, there are legal regulations that dictate the standard measures for alcoholic beverages. If a venue sells a single measure at 25ml, it means that they are following the legal requirement for a standard single serving. Therefore, if they were to sell a double measure, it would need to be exactly double the size of a single measure, which is 50ml. Hence, it is true that if a venue sells a single measure at 25ml, they can only legally sell a double at 50ml.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If a venue sells their single measure at 35ml, they can also sell a single measure at 25ml?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The question is asking if a venue that sells a single measure at 35ml can also sell a single measure at 25ml. The correct answer is false because if a venue sells their single measure at 35ml, they cannot sell a smaller measure at 25ml. The smaller measure would be considered a different size or quantity, and therefore would have a different price.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the maximum fine for under-pouring a drink?

    • A.

      £50

    • B.

      £500

    • C.

      £5,000

    • D.

      £50,000

    Correct Answer
    C. £5,000
    Explanation
    The maximum fine for under-pouring a drink is £5,000. This suggests that there are legal consequences for serving drinks that do not meet the required standard or quantity. It is important for establishments to accurately measure and serve drinks to ensure customer satisfaction and comply with regulations. A high fine such as £5,000 serves as a deterrent and emphasizes the seriousness of under-pouring drinks.

    Name the Glassware: 

    • A.

      Champagne Flute

    • B.

      Collins Glass

    • C.

      Rocks Glass

    • D.

      Wine Glass

    Correct Answer
    D. Wine Glass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Wine Glass" because it is a type of glassware specifically designed for serving wine. It typically has a long stem to hold the glass without warming the wine with body heat, and a wide bowl to allow the wine to breathe and release its aromas. The shape and design of a wine glass also help to enhance the tasting experience by directing the wine to the appropriate areas of the tongue and nose.

      Rocks Glass

    • D.

      Wine Glass

    Correct Answer
    C. Rocks Glass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Rocks Glass. A rocks glass, also known as an old-fashioned glass or a lowball glass, is a short tumbler with a wide brim. It is typically used for serving spirits on the rocks or neat, as well as cocktails like an Old Fashioned or a Negroni. The wide brim allows for the addition of ice cubes or muddled ingredients, and the short stature of the glass helps to maintain the temperature of the drink.

    Any wine sold by the glass must be made available in a 125ml measure?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because according to the question, any wine that is sold by the glass must be available in a 125ml measure. This means that if a customer wants to order a glass of wine, they should be able to choose a 125ml serving size. This measure ensures consistency and standardization in the serving size of wine by the glass.

      True

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Brandy is not defined as a 'spirit' and therefore is not constrained by the same terms as the defined spirits (Vodka, gin, rum & whiskey) and may be sold in other measures other than the chosen multiples of either 25ml or 35ml.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Brandy is not considered a "spirit" in the same way that vodka, gin, rum, and whiskey are. Therefore, it is not subject to the same regulations regarding the measures in which it can be sold. While the defined spirits are typically sold in multiples of either 25ml or 35ml, brandy may be sold in different measures. This statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You should wash and dry your hands frequently, especially after contact with citrus fruit/Juices to help prevent hand dermatitis?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regularly washing and drying hands, particularly after handling citrus fruit or juices, can help prevent hand dermatitis. Citrus fruits contain natural acids that can irritate the skin, leading to dermatitis. Washing hands removes any potential irritants, while drying them thoroughly helps to prevent moisture buildup, which can further exacerbate the condition. Therefore, it is important to practice good hand hygiene to reduce the risk of developing hand dermatitis.
