$125 for Spontaneous Bartender Course ($250 Value)
During a six-hour Spontaneous Bartending Course designed for the casual mixologist, professional bartenders teach simple recipes and unique twists on the art of cocktail recipes. The instructors suggest enrolling in small groups, as it’s an ideal situation for practicing skills with observant friends at after-class parties. Classes are held on select Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Blue Label Bartending School
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.
