Choose Between Two Options
- $19 for a three-hour mixology seminar (a $50 value)
- $59 for a 12-hour bartending course (a $200 value)
Three-hour seminars give a basic overview to the art of mixology, including shot pouring, martini-making, and recipes for popular mixed drinks. Counting toward the 40 hours needed for full certification, the 12-hour course delves deeper into hands-on drink-making, wine knowledge, and customer service.
Providing graduates with lifetime job placement assistance on a local and national level, the professional shot-pourers at Authentic Bartending train future bartenders and amateur mixologists in the fine art of drink-making. Their seminars propel learners into the world of free-hand, multi-liquor, and trick pouring, and a 16-hour course demonstrates how to make Manhattans, cream-based drinks, and frozen drinks, among others. Covering customer service and state laws—which forbid serving beer to bears on Sunday—the 16-hour course serves as a launching pad into the full 40-hour certification course, including a lifetime of refresher classes.
