RSA Brisbane – Bar Essentials

Have you done your RSA Brisbane course and need some tips for working in a bar.

RSA Brisbane and Making Juice

Brisbane RSA Brisbane When you squeeze fresh citrus fruit, you are essentially putting enough pressure on the tiny juice sacs to cause them to burst and expel juice. Hand squeezing produces juice fastest, but produces the least amount of juice of any other juicing method. One way to maximize juice production is to cut limes in half by width, like you do when making fruit wheels. Stab the fruit with a knife or fork several times from the inside of the fruit, making sure that you are slicing through to the other side. Try to break as many juice sacs as possible.
