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.

Choose from Three Options

  • $89 for a weekend flair-bartending class (a $295 value)
  • $119 for a two-week hands-on bartending course (a $495 value)
  • $179 for both of the above options plus online instruction (a $99 value; an $889 total value)

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a chosen Saturday and Sunday, pupils in the flair-bartending class learn the fancy moves needed to create potent potables with style, picking up skills such as garnish and napkin tossing and bottle flipping. For those eyeing mixology as a career, the two-week hands-on course introduces the basics of bartending, from mixing popular and traditional cocktails to impeccable customer service. This class takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday–Friday. Those who buy the third option also receive a series of videos, a textbook, and online lessons to help prepare them for their two-week course.

Professional Bartenders School

In bar classrooms outfitted with real equipment and experienced instructors, the students at Professional Bartenders School learn to mix, pour, and serve their way into the barkeeping industry. Courses ranging from six hours to two weeks instill pupils with the tenets of professional drinksmanship, such as free pouring, drink recipes, and customer service. Students fill glasses with spurts from soda guns, simulated liquor from real bottles, and garnishes carved from organic plastic lemons as they learn drink recipes and mixing techniques. Upon certification, newly minted bartenders receive lifetime job-placement help, with access to a database of hospitality employers.
