In this Achievement Guide for VA-11 Hall-A Cyberpunk Bartender Action, I will quickly document how to reach all the endings and get every achievement. Beware, that this means that there are going to be spoilers especially as you scroll down towards the endings and more obscure achievements.
There are not going to be any more warnings, so read at your own discretion. I would like to use this opportunity to strongly urge you to play at least one or two playthroughs yourself though, as VA-11 Hall-A is a special kind of ride that you should experience without background knowledge first. If you are unsure about the game, have a look at this review.

Kira Miki’s Ending
Purchase the Mulan Tea and give it to Kira Miki on her first visit. Once she asks for another drink, give her a drink she likes that has alcohol in it. She will later return and give you concert tickets, thus unlocking this ending.
Serve Dorothy and Sei the drinks they want. Whenever Dorothy feels down or wants you to guess her favorite drink, pick a Piano Woman.
Whenever Sei comes into the bar and asks for a drink that Jill questions, give her something cold and non-alcoholic instead.
Serve Virgilio to his full satisfaction. When he asks for 17, you need to give him a drink that has a total amount of 17 ingedrients. “Something fake” refers to Frothy Water. “Purity” means you need to serve him Zen Star.
Same as above, give Alma what she wants. If she asks for a classy drink, serve her a Brandtini. She will feel down in a later part of the game and you need to serve her another Brandtini.
