Some heads of state and figures regal
Would assure you that I am legal

Being my opposite it may take
To bring this attribute to your steak

Moments that might be described as me
Expressions of love shared quietly

As a mixologist I'll go far
So long as I am mixed with a bar

What am I?



lines 1-2:
legal tender - Many banknotes and coins carry the image of a political leader, monarch, or emperor.

lines 3-4:
tender steak - In order to tenderize your steak, you may need to pound it i.e. be tough with it.

lines 5-6:
tender moments - These are quiet and calm bonding moments that are usually shared between just two people.

lines 7-8:
bartender - A mixologist is another word for a bartender ("bar" + "tender").

The perhaps subtle hint hinges on the fact that the word "tough" is an antonym (or opposite) of the word "tender".

The title was probably not very helpful, but was a cryptic clue in that between the words "Must End Erstwhile" the word "tender" is actually spelled out.
