An inexperienced bartender can suffer great embarrassment when carelessly mixing drinks, such as inadvertently concocting a witch's potion for alchemy. Learn to mix like a master with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a four-hour bartending course at San Diego Bartending School on Mission Gorge Road (a $149 value).
With a staff boasting both bartending and training experience, San Diego Bartending School connects budding liquor-learners with accelerated courses taught in an authentic bar environment. Bartending beginners get their first taste behind the bar in Mixology 101, where they'll learn essential techniques, such as how to hold the bottle, how to pour, and what types of glasses to use with specific drinks. Classes are taught in a realistic bar environment with a fully stocked bar, low lighting, and a George Washington impersonator singing karaoke of the entire Ramones catalogue. Classes are capped at 12 students so booze-muses have ample time to try a hand at mixing lustrous libations and get feedback from instructors. Get expert feedback while mixing a 7 & 7 or Fuzzy Navel at one of six state-of-the-art mixing stations, where alcohol artisans use the bottles filled with colored water instead of alcohol so students can feel comfortable making a mistake.
