AFAIK never used in a canon sentence.

KGT 83:  In fact {vut} can also be used in reference to making a beverage, whether simply mixing ingredients together (such as putting cream in coffee) or starting from scratch (such as brewing ale). A Klingon food and/or beverage preparer is a {vutwI'} (for convenience, this will continue to be translated as "cook"). A bartender, on the other hand, is a {chom}.

KGT 101:  If there is a separate bar ({tach}), the bartender ({chom}) will mix drinks; otherwise, these chores fall to the {vutwI'}.

KGT 102:  If the restaurant [{Qe'}] is large enough to have a separate bar ({tach}), the dining party, upon completion of the meal, is likely to move to the bar and continue drinking and, probably, toasting and singing.

Similar words:

jabwI' 			server, waiter, waitress (n)
tebwI' 			food server in a {Do Qe'} (n)
vutwI' 			cook (n)

*{tach QorghwI'} 	tavern-keeper (n) (Gilgamesh)
