Like baking a cake, mixing a drink requires precise measurements and the restraint to not ingest so many ingredients that you ruin your own birthday party. Become a power-mixer with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $199 for 40 hours of bartending classes ($495 Value)

Learn how to mix, stir, and shake under the tutelage of experienced instructors in a fully operational bar setting. Learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations. Serious bartenders-to-be will partake in 40 knowledge-soaked hours of extensive training and hands-on practice regarding all aspects of tending bar, from setup and maintenance to cutting off customers and taking the jukebox off shuffle. Speed techniques and cash-handling procedures help newbies meet the demands of a fast-paced job, and profit pouring also allows them to rake in tips quicker. The in-depth course also covers wine distinctability, draft pouring, keg tapping, and access to a Cheers dimension that currently, due to spatial fluctuations, contains only Cliff Clavins.

ABC Bartending School

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
