Bartenders Garrett Blackwood and Mike Mitchell realized that their city lacked a professional bartending school, leaving aspiring bartenders high and dry. So they started Blue Label Bartending School, a school that turns pretenders into bartenders. The school’s reputation has allowed over 250 mixologists to land jobs not just in Oklahoma, but as far away as Maui and New York. Garrett and Mike recognized that non-professionals also desire the ability to casually make a cool cocktail or two, so they started a class for at-home mixologists. In it, they focus on quick, accessible recipes and skills designed to impress friends at a party or flight attendants on a long flight.
