2. Selling like composite item

If you sale by a particular set of liquid volumes (for example drinks in shots or pints) you can use composite items.
First, create the component of your liquid item in 'Item list', and set the amount of stock. If you don’t want to sale this component beside predefined sets, deselect the check-box ‘The item is available for sale’ so it will not be seen in the items list during sales.
