Bartending Class Curriculum

Our course is all-inclusive. Here are just some of the major details that we'll cover:

Mixology and Types of Alcohol

We make no assumptions about your prior bartending experience at Mix 'em Up, so our course includes information you'll need to know about the different kinds of beer, wine, spirits, cordials, and more. We cover brand names, classifications, customary serving methods, and even the history and origins of the more top-shelf items.

What bartending course would be complete without drink recipes? Using proven memory techniques (a Jolly Rancher is a "Pretty Awesome Candy" — P for peach schnapps, A for apple schnapps, and C for cranberry juice) and a lot of hands-on practice, you'll leave Mix 'em Up knowing how to make more than 150 different cocktails.

Serving Techniques

We'll also show you all the customary garnishes, how to cut fruit to maximize visual appeal, and optionally, we can even teach you bar magic and bar flair (such as bottle flipping) to impress your customers in the appropriate venues.

Additionally, being able to deal with a busy night crowd is as important as anything else, so we will help you develop skills (such as accurate free-pouring) and confidence in dealing with many customers at one time, serving them quickly and efficiently. We'll also tell you how to keep your customers happy, staying longer, and spending more money. Happy customers means more tips for you!

Equipment

At Mix 'em Up, everything "but the booze" is real. You'll get hands-on experience with all of the tools of the trade, including beer taps, soda guns, glassware, bar shakers, ice machines, bar sinks, and cash registers. There's no "faking it" here—everything works, so you'll know how to use it.

Business End

Knowing how to serve alcohol responsibly, and how to handle money, are vital to keeping your job. We'll teach you how to recognize intoxication, how to check IDs of all kinds, and how to keep track of tabs, as well as credit card processing, running POS (point-of-sale) systems, and more. We'll even teach you how to approach a new bartending job interview and how to land it.

For students who are interested in running their own business as a professional bartender, we have a wealth of information about getting started on that path as well.

Setup and Tear-Down

A bartender's job is more than just mixing drinks. Every class, we'll have you practice setting up and closing down your bar, both importance steps in the daily process. Practice makes perfect, and when you move on to your job in the field, you'll have the confidence you need to manage your bar with ease.
