That is an interesting question. At this point, I would look at the
somewhat ambiguous phrase from Power Klingon:

Terran:
{jabwI', romuluS HIq vItlhutlh.}
Waiter, I will drink Romulan ale.

Klingon:
{jabwI', cha' HIvje' tIqem! tera'ngan motlhbe' SoH.}
Waiter, bring two glasses! -- You are an unusual Terran.

Of course this is a very literal translation of the English, and it also
does not explain if the Klingon asks for two empty glasses which he will
fill from the bottle, or if he says "two glasses of ale", but you could
use that to express the idea:

{wa'Hu' 'Iw HIq vItlhutlh. cha' HIvje'.}
"I had bloodwine last night. Two glasses."
