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.

Leaning Into My Passion

reat course! The modules and guides are clear and easy to understand as well as presented in a way for you to work at your own pace. I took my time and completed the course in about three month… completing a few modules before going to bed, the weekend, during my walks, etc. I’m so proud of my cocktail creation — The Honey Grapefruit Blossom!

The most useful cocktail program

What should I say? It's the best cocktail program! I learned how to design my own cocktail program throughout the course. The name of it is Saint Ferret! Lovely cocktail. Stop scrolling down and just go for it!

Excellent Program!

Very Informative! The program guided me step by step. It lets me work at my own pace, and they will coach you so you can correct if there's something needs to work on or needs improvement. Lastly, they will give recommended procedures so I can create a Good Cocktail. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Mixology 101 Online Course

I was so happy to run across A Bar Above during my web search when I was looking to get certified in Mixology. I thought that it was just going to be a quick course and go, but I got so much more from the experience than I anticipated.

Chris was very informative and thorough. He went into great depth about each spirit and gave so many great tips that really helped me evolve as a mixologist. I love that all of the information from the videos was also provided in text on each video page for further review.

The tests after each module were short and not overly tricky, but ensured that you knew the information.

In addition, the course led me to their podcast, which is excellent and to their barware, which is such great quality. The podcast introduced me to so man others in the industry as well.

I highly recommend this course to anyone who desires a better understanding of liquor, Mixology, bar business and more. I now teach Mixology classes and this course and community has made me an even better and more knowledgeable mixologist.

My signature drink is the Cinnamon Whiskey Sour.

Congrats on completing the course and wow, your drink sounds fantastic! Happy Mixing!

FAQ’S

Have a question that’s not answered here? Just ask!

how is this program different from barsmarts?

While there is a bit of overlap, the focus and most of the content of these two courses are very different. BarSmarts spends a great deal of time on the history of spirits and learning existing cocktail recipes. The Mixology Certification, however, is focused on learning how to create your own cocktails – and in great detail.

BarSmarts is a great resource to learn cocktail and spirit history, as well as learning the classic cocktail recipes you should know as a bartender.

This program focuses instead on teaching you to design your own recipes. For example, in our "Souring” unit, we discuss specific details about pH levels of citrus, different varietals of all the major citrus categories, and how they compare to the pH and flavor profiles of the main varietals. Then we discuss how to use that information to create a balanced cocktail.

how long will it take to complete?
You are welcome to take the classes at your own pace. A quicker student might finish 3-5 modules per week and finish the program in around 3-4 weeks. In general, I’d recommend planning for around 6-8 weeks to finish the entire program.
can i buy this course for someone else?
Absolutely! Follow this link to purchase a gift registration code. You’ll receive a custom one-time use code which will allow your recipient to register free of charge.
will i get a certificate when i finish?
All students receive a PDF certificate via email, and (if requested) a paper copy upon completion of the course and passing the exam. We will mail it to the address you provide after completion.
is this like a bartending class?
No, this program is designed to teach how to use different ingredients together in cocktails – but does not cover basic bartending techniques like shaking, stirring, muddling, etc. I recommend you wait until you are fairly comfortable with your bartending skills before enrolling in this program.
what tools and / or ingredients will i need?

You can take the course without any tools or ingredients at all – but to get the fullest experience, you’ll want to work through the homework suggestions for each module.

To get the most out of the program, here’s everything you’ll need to do all of the homework:

Ingredients:

  • Fruit: Limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit
  • Sugars: Table sugar, turbinado or demerara sugar, honey, and agave or maple syrup (Optional but helpful: A couple low-calorie sweeteners like Splenda, NutraSweet, etc.)
  • Spirits: Six different spirits or styles of spirits
  • Bitters: One bottle of Angostura bitters
  • Eggs: Fresh eggs, pasteurized egg whites, or powdered egg whites

Tools:

Any brand of barware will work, but we highly recommend our brand (linked below)
