Ibiza Bartending Academy’s resident bartenders steer students through mixology classes designed for beginners and experienced cocktail constructors alike. Scratch mixology’s surface using highball glasses as makeshift augers in a beginner-friendly four-hour bartending class. Students learn the basics of bartending before trying their hand behind a real bar, which requires none of the advanced miming degrees required to mix behind an imaginary bar. Ibiza offers a four-week certification course for those with professional ambitions or more established spirit-slinging skills. Cocktail-conjuring crafts are honed through either four four-hour sessions or eight two-hour sessions. At the end of the course, pupils will have the opportunity to take the speed and accuracy exams and become a fully certified bartender.
