I have worked for a few years as a bartender. Most of my experience is in large venues, or for special events such as weddings and fundraisers. Thus, I have not had the time to develop true mixology skills. This course with A BAR ABOVE changed that. I now have a deeper understanding of cocktail composition. And I have acquired the confidence to embrace creativity and compose my own drinks. The drink pictured below tastes great!
I truly enjoyed this course. It contains an incredible amount of valuable information, followed by quick guides that summarized each module. At the end of the course, I was able to create a cocktail following a methodology that allowed me to keep track of modifications and possible variations that could be made over the original recipe.
This course has provided me with handy techniques for approaching a cocktail creation process. I really liked how the course is distributed, the amount of valuable information given, and the quick guides given after every module. Definitely recommended to anybody who wants to expand their knowledge and learn a more structured way of creating cocktails.
Been bartending for over 15 years and was looking to enhance my resume with certifications. I realized I was doing many things incorrectly and recommend this program to anyone looking to expand their knowledge. Cheers!
A Bar Above’s mixology couse was superb! Chris did an excellent job of presenting information in a clear, concise, and manageable way. From background info on how the different spirits are made to what glasses to use for certain cocktails, I found all the information to be extremely relevant and the course has left me with the desire to grow my knowledge by digging deeper into the various topics. Prior to taking this class my cocktails, while pretty, often tasted slightly off balanced. Now if my drinks are off balanced I have the knowledge to employ the proper fix. I have so much confidence when crafting cocktails at home now, most times i’ll simply ask my guest “What are you in the mood for?” Cons? just like my cocktails I like my reviews to be balanced as well. Two potential downsides...first, I enjoy my cocktails more now so I drink slightly more of them (Debatable Con). Secondly , when I order cocktails I am very precise in my order, needing my cocktails to be made and perhaps presented a certain way. (Again, also a debatable Con unless of course you are unlucky enough to be my server or bartender. :) ) Great Course!!!!
