Become a Bartender – Speed & Multitasking

If you're serious about becoming a bartender, and more importantly, if you're serious about making a lot of money bartending, you'd better know how to be fast and that means multitasking. As you know, there is nothing worse than the sloth bartender who takes forever to get your drink order, and then once they finally do take your order, they take an extra eternity making it and then ringing it up. Why is speed and multitasking so important? In the first place, nobody is going to tip you well if they have to wait to get their drink, which means you can expect a couple shiny quarters for those 4 cocktails you made. And in the second place, if you're making 50 drinks per hour instead of 150 drinks per hour, your tips are going to be three times less (see how quick I am on the math). In this video, I'm going to show you how exactly how I train my bartenders to...

7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience

7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience

I'm just gonna say it: Bartending is AWESOME! Before starting my business Bar Patrol in 2010, I spent 15 years pouring beers, shaking martinis and creating awesome shots and cocktails for guests who had come to my adult playground to frolic. And in the process, I was walking home with $300 - $400 per shift each and every night. Not bad for someone who is simply facilitating a party. As many of you know, a large portion of my business is training people with no experience to become bartenders, so if that's you, and you've come here in search of information on how you can get started raking in fistfuls of cash day after day, night after night, you'll want to check out the video below, 7 Steps to Becoming a Bartender With Absolutely No Experience.

Restaurant Health Inspection: Are You Ready?

Restaurant Health Inspection: Are You Ready?

How come nobody talks about the sexiness of health codes, with all the mold and fruit flies and the prevention of rat feces in the work place? Guess I'm by myself in that space. Nevertheless, you had better make sure that your bar/restaurant is up to code when it comes time for your next health inspection or the consequences will be substantial, including shutting down your business. Remaining up to code isn't that complicated, but it does require you putting a cleaning system in place and some elbow grease. And of course, you must know what to look for, which is why I created The Ultimate Health Inspection Guide, complete with checklists, so you can ensure that your bar/restaurant stays up to code, and most importantly, that none of your guests get sick. To get your guide visit the Resources page here at Barpatrol.net and simply download the PDF, print it out and hang it on your wall or tack it to your forehead. Whatever...

How to Make a Braveheart Cocktail

How to Make a Braveheart Cocktail

The Braveheart Cocktail: best consumed in a kilt (commando, of course), although you can totally sip it in your bathrobe at home if you're feeling more Heffner than Wallace. Just don't expect to battle oppression and tyranny from your sofa wearing a cloth belt. Cheers, Dave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZJFFllYwpw    ...

For now, I'll have to make them at home, along with my newest interpretation of sophistication: the Negroni Slushee. Or more specifically, the Watermelon Negroni Slushee. There's nothing better than taking a classic, refined cocktail with decades of chronicled history behind it and reducing it to something you could buy on the Vegas strip in one of those 3-foot long plastic tubes. In other words, it ruins cocktail purists' day, and for reasons I can't...
