setting up different tax for food items and Alcoholic items

We are a hotel that will be selling hotel amenity on our shopify account. Is there a way to designate a tax rate for a specific item or it can only be done by using the "Tax overrides" function on designated "collections"

For example under "In-room Delivery" collection, we have cheese plate and local beer, is there a way to set cheese plate to have just 5% tax and local beer to have 15% tax which is actually the case in the province we operate.

Or is the only option to use the "tax overrides" function to set the "food collection" with 5% tax and another "alcoholic collection" with 15% tax? Our Food and Beverage Director is leaning towards to have all the food and beverage items under one collection but we couldn't figure out a way to have different tax rates applied to different items in the same collection. Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you.
