Learn how to mix, stir, and shake under the tutelage of ABC’s experienced instructors. During the course of 40 knowledge-soaked hours, bartenders-to-be will receive extensive instruction and hands-on practice in alcohol alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations. Flair-bartending courses instill skills in bar-top gymnastics, teaching students how to perform eye-catching moves such as showy pours, attractive glass flips, and ice-cube triple Salchows. Emerging beverage buffs leave the course with a mixing kit for practicing at home, and ABC grads enjoy a lifetime of free refresher courses, job-placement assistance, and access to a Cheers dimension that currently, due to spatial fluctuations, contains only Cliff Clavin.
