Now that the summer has finally arrived, you’ll find that Friday and Saturday nights are full of people out and about to restaurants, clubs, and, most of all, bars. Clearly, there is a growing need for more and more bartenders as the restaurant industry gets back on its feet, so why not look into becoming one yourself? Whether it be a prestigious bartender at a popular restaurant in town or simply the cocktail master for your after-work hangout, it pays to know the basics of making a good drink. In this video, we will take a look at some of the basics of bartending.
Let’s get started!
First of all, don’t stress about learning too much upon your first time making drinks. You only need to get the basics down first and the rest will come as you progress. Next, be sure to keep your cool around customers. Take your time making drinks when you start out, and remain cordial and respectful to feedback. Next, get to know your locals. Don’t be afraid to talk to people at the bar, and jot down what they like in terms of cocktails. Bartending is all about making the customer comfortable!
