Great Course!

I loved the idea of being able to complete the mixology course at my own pace! The course was very informative, and I learned a lot from the videos, and all of the printed info, and homework that I was able to download. I also love that I can always go back, and log into the course again to watch any videos, and go over any information that I would like to review over again.

Enthusiastically recommend to bring your cocktail knowledge to the next level

The mixology certification program was exactly what I was looking for. With my busy schedule, I was able to complete the course at my own pace. The training videos, other information provided were straightforward and easy to follow. I highly recommend the Mixology Certification Program for anyone who's looking to expand their knowledge and make great cocktails. Plus, the certificate of completion is my way of showing off and it's displayed on our home bar shelf :)

Great program

I loved the mixology course and learned a lot. I especially loved that I could take the courses at my own pace. The instructor was easy to follow and the information presented in a way that lended to a greater understanding of the science involved in building cocktails. The "homework", while not mandatory, was fun to do and explore all the different ways to modify drinks. Learning how to make changes to basic recipes is priceless. I would highly recommend A Bar Above's online courses.
