Cocktails' names often hint at their origins; the Blue Hawaiian was pioneered by surfing Smurfs, while the Fuzzy Navel stems from peaches' refusals to remove their T-shirts at the beach. Get acquainted with the vast libation library with today's Groupon: for $399, you get a bartending course (a $950 value) at The Premium Institute of Bartending's Lewisville and Fort Worth campuses.

The Premium Institute of Bartending aims to teach prospective bottle-slingers the marketable skills that will help them get hired as bartenders. Throughout the comprehensive course, alcohol apprentices will learn the key skills of mixology, inventory control, bar-tab management, contemporary jukebox law, and point-of-service systems. The Institute is one of the only bartending schools in the area to require that its pupils complete an externship at a local bar or restaurant to gain on-the-job training, as well as one of the only schools in Texas affiliated with the Professional Bartending Schools of America. Unlike medical preschools, graduates will be sent out into the world with more than just a certificate, a dream, and a toy stethoscope; students will have access to the school's job-placement-services department and will have the opportunity to practice their garnishing and bottle juggling with Premium Event Staffing. Classes for both Lewisville and Fort Worth are conveniently scheduled on days, evenings, or weekends, with courses lasting no more than two weeks. This Groupon covers registration fee, tuition, books, and materials.

The Premium Institute of Bartending Schools

Every graduate of The Premium Institute of Bartending Schools' 34-hour mixology program can count on one thing—being hired as an on-call bartender with Premium Event Staffing, a company that provides staff for private parties and corporate events. Like a pie-fight truce, this guarantee benefits everyone involved. Students get to earn income while they use the institute's job-placement services to find a steady gig at an affiliated bar or elsewhere. Premium Event Staffing in turn gets access to bartenders who have completed the mixology program and who know their way around a muddler.

The reason even the institute's most recent graduates are so comfortable behind a bar isn't that they're wearing footie pajamas under their clothes—it's that classes take place in such a realistic setting. Students work at a bar setup that includes bar guns, liquor bottles, and 14 types of glasses, and they learn to pour on a real draft-beer system. This hands-on approach also characterizes the four-hour introductory classes the school holds for people who wish to learn to make martinis, shots, frozen drinks, or other specialties.
