No previous experience or knowledge required
You’ll need basic bar tools such as a jigger, shaker tin, muddler and bar spoon
Our goal with this course was to cover every aspect of each of the three cocktails – the margarita, martini and mojito – from the origin of the cocktails to mastering the creation of each cocktail. We’ve included “talking points” videos as well as the over-the-shoulder cocktail creation videos so that you can learn interesting tidbits of information about each of these popular cocktails.
We chose over-the-shoulder type videos as we wanted you to be able to learn and see the creation of the cocktails from the bartender’s perspective. Each of the drink videos also contains a narrative where we go into further detail about each step of the drink making process, the choice of alcohol, presentation, garnishes etc.
If you’ve ordered the same cocktail in more than a few bars, you’re likely aware that different bars / bartenders make the same cocktail differently. Depending on which bar you go to and which bartender serves you, the ingredients of a cocktail can actually vary quite a bit. Some cocktails, like the margarita, for example, can have two completely different recipes depending on whether you use fresh ingredients or not. This is the reason that this course contains two videos for the Margarita – one traditional and one quick and dirty version.
In addition to the cocktail creation and talking points videos, we have also included two videos walking you through the various styles of pouring. Mastering pouring and cutting will ensure that you look like a pro while you’re creating these cocktail classics.
Don’t let the price tag of this course fool you! You will find real value in these videos and whether you’re just starting out bartending, have tons of experience or are just looking to learn how to make some cool cocktails, you won’t find a more well-rounded cocktail course.
