What You'll Get
Mixes keep life interesting, from mixtapes from a crush, to mixed nuts, to mix-and-match pairs of shoes necessitated by hungry golden retrievers. Meet your mix métier with this Groupon: for $199, you get a 40-hour professional-bartending course at ABC Bartending School in Tempe (a $399 value).
ABC's experienced drink slingers lead professional bartending courses in classrooms equipped with fully operational beverage bodegas. During the 40-hour professional-bartending course, which takes place over the span of one–two weeks or two weekends, aspiring mixologists become familiar with bar equipment, such as soda guns, blenders, and speed racks, and learn tips for proper bar setup. After gaining tool know-how, students take a crash course on how to mix and pour more than 100 popular cocktails, delving into the different types of liquor and learning how to detect the difference between a vodka cranberry and a vodka vodka. Pupils will also soak up important facts regarding bar opening and closing procedures and methods for handling and managing monetary transactions. ABC's instructors prep protégés with job-hunting strategies, such as how to prepare a resumé, and all grads of the course enjoy membership to ABC schools nationwide and access to job-placement services.
