Are you sure? From the code you posted, the message should read "You need  
to select a drink!", not that one.

Replace the last line with something like this, to see what you are  
getting exactly:

        print("Sorry, no %r (%r) available." % (

BTW, which Python version are you using? The tutorial you linked to is  
aimed at Python 2.x, but your print syntax suggests you're using Python 3.x
