The award-winning Texas School of Bartenders twists inexperienced attendees into full-scale bartenders through comprehensive elixir concocting taught at fully operational bar stations. Students can absorb free pouring basics over the course of 180 minutes by slinging bottles at the working bar area, complete with soda gun, mixing tools, and nursery rhymes to soothe overzealous jukeboxes. Participants also survey the highlights and hazards of drink taming as they expand their minds' beverage brainpower with basic liquor knowledge, size up the specialty liqueurs in the speed rack, and sift through shaking and straining methods. The class concludes with practical applications of quickly grasped techniques, allowing future house-party hosts to practice their newfound pouring skills. The staff recommends that students dress comfortably, as bartenders in suits of armor are often shortchanged tips.
