The new guy
What he's pouring: A signature cocktail whose recipe is written on a cheat sheet under the bar
It's his second day, and he isn't dressed quite right for the establishment and stumbles while greeting customers and doesn't have an easy time suggesting a cocktail, and is kind of stressed out okay, just give me a minute, please, thanks.
The sisterly bartender
What she's pouring: Hot toddy
Skilled at immediate and unconditional empathy. Next-level wingwoman skills. Probably has a master's degree but makes such good tips and enjoys her co-workers so much that she's never leaving.
