An in-depth knowledge of inebriants can enliven humdrum dinner parties, just as an in-depth knowledge of dynamite fishing can enliven foundering job interviews. Give palates an executive education with today’s Groupon to JC Bartending Academy in Plano. Choose between the following options:

The experienced instructors at JC Bartending Academy teach the alchemy of blending fermented beverages to pupils positioned at the 10 bar stations in the academy’s 1,700-square-foot studio. A four-hour mixology workshop acquaints neophytes with bar setup, the fundamentals of pouring and mixing drinks, and how to differentiate brandy snifters from Cinderella slippers.
Alternatively, the 32-hour bartending course delves into everything from drink presentation and knowledge of wine and beer taxonomies to efficiency and customer-service skills. Pupils graduate with a diploma and TABC certification, authorizing them to legally peel beer labels from their bottles while working professionally. JC Bartending Academy also aids its students with job-placement services, free refresher courses, and inclusion on the academy’s roster of on-call bartenders.
Although JC Bartending Academy sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
JC Bartending Academy
For more than 14 years, the drink alchemists of JC Bartending Academy have handled drink-slinging duties for private events, using skills that they pass on to amateurs during the school's hands-on classes. With more than 100 certified professional mixologists on staff, no drink recipe is out of bounds as each glassful and dazzles students or sippers during bartending classes. Beneath rows of colorful bottles at a working bar, trainers splash together the basic staples of typical watering holes as well as more complex cocktails. The fully functional bar prepares students fully to prep drinks, wield a soda gun, and pick bubbles out of soda for finicky billionaires. To augment the educational services, the school also provides job-placement services, bartending phone apps, and information on certifications.
