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.

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...

How to go From Barback to Bartender in 5.2 Seconds

How to go From Barback to Bartender in 5.2 Seconds

Ok, maybe not 5.2 seconds, but fast stuff is so cool I just couldn't help myself. As you may or may not be aware, the entire purpose of my bartender online course, TheRealBarCourse, is to get you well-trained and then get you a bartending job as quickly as possible, but if you're a barback or are looking to get hired as a barback, there are highly effective ways to accelerate your path to becoming a bartender quickly.
