Setting up most items for the Restaurant module of ROBOTILL is quick and easy. Some items like cocktails is a bit more tricky. You need to set it up correctly to accurately keep track of how much stock you have left.
For this example, we will set up a Springbokkie (a popular cocktail shooter in South Africa)
As you will receive Cape Velvet as a 750ml bottle and you would like to sell it as a bottle or break it up into smaller units you can use for cocktails, you set the Cape Velvet bottle up as a normal stock item.
You then create another stock item and call it 'Cape Velvet 30ml shots'.
After you created the 30ml shot item, add it as sub items to the Cape Velvet 750 ml bottle item.
As you can get 25 units from a 750ml bottle, change the qty to 25 and remember to Update the item.
The bottle is now set up correctly and can be sold as a bottle or as 30ml shots. The 'stock on hand' will be updated correctly.
Now do the same for the other ingredient for a Springbokkie, the peppermint liqueur. After you have set up the bottles, you can do the cocktail shooter.
You create the 'Springbokkie' as a compound item and add the units used to create the cocktail as sub items.
The cocktail will use one unit of Cape Velvet 30ml and one unit of Zappa 30ml. When you add both as sub items, all your stock counts will be updated correctly when you sell a cocktail.
Below are the stock items you had to set up for the Springbokkie cocktail:
