Something funny for a conversation:
Funny? I wouldn’t want to make myself like a fool. So, I would use change-the-guest-perception-by-using-ingredients-that-they-dislike as a topic, hopefully end up with a good conversation on that night.
What kind of customers do you like?  
Guests who like to ask questions, willing to try novel cocktails and appreciate cocktails.
Which part of your job do you enjoy the most?
Well, a simple one - satisfaction from the guest (by looking from their face expression or they literally shout out “WOW”)
What do you usually drink when you are not working?
Depending on my mood or time of the day.
