In addition to crafting cocktails, aspiring bartenders must prove their conversational mettle in their final exam by talking a sphinx into revealing why it only speaks in riddles. Take an easier route to becoming a professional pourer with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a 16-hour mixology-certification class at American Bartenders School (a $295 value). Classes are currently scheduled to run for 8 hours on both Saturday and Sunday. Because dates vary and additional classes may be added, please see the schedule for the most up-to-date information.

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic knowledge of drink formulas. During the mixology-certification course, students master shaking, garnishing, layering, and glassware selection in a realistic bar setting, complete with animatronic bar regulars debating which member of Foghat is best fit for the presidency. The sessions eschew rote recipe memorization, and students of mixology learn the underlying reasons behind certain techniques so that they can apply that knowledge when crafting their own blends. Pupils also gain access to the newest recipes for today’s most requested drinks, before returning home with a mixology certificate, professional resumé, and the ability to set up and stock their own home bars, all of which make a classy addition to living rooms, lounges, and butler traps.

American Bartenders School

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders to develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic drink-formula knowledge. All of the school's classes cover basic mixing, garnishing, layering, and glassware selection in a realistic bar setting, complete with animatronic bar regulars debating whether Woody Allen is currently the president of Azerbaijan. Students gain access to a book of recipes for shooters, including cosmos, lemon drops, and jelly beans; learn how to make frozen specialties and hot toddies; and discover how to cure hangovers and hiccups. For the 12-hour bartending-certification course, graduation sessions are held where the instructors offer helpful tips on how to get hired as a bartender, before returning home with a mixology certificate, professional resumé, and the ability to set up and stock their own home bars, all of which make a classy addition to living rooms, lounges, and butler traps.
