What You'll Get
There are many ways to serve liquor, such as a "neat," which means without ice, and "on the rocks," which means boiling over a handful of volcanic basalt. Learn to mix a geological gin and tonic with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a complete bartending course at The Academy of Professional Bartending School in New Rochelle (a $295 value).
The one, two, and five-week courses at The Academy of Professional Bartending School conform to each fledgling bartender's schedule, instilling in them the fine art of drink crafting through 40 hours of hands-on mixing in a professional-quality practice bar. The simulacrum bar is fully stocked with real liquor bottles, glasses, and professional-grade equipment, including sinks, 10-button soda guns, ice makers, and the teleprompter that every seemingly sagacious bartender is actually reading from. Students will learn a range of recipes, techniques for crafting even the most unusual request, and how to feed the information into the gaping digital maw of a point-of-sale system.
Every graduate receives a professional bartending certification and access to a lifetime of job-placement assistance and free refresher courses—in case one forgets which peninsula, island, or archipelago is known for its distinctive iced tea.

About The Academy of Professional Bartending School
The instructors at The Academy of Professional Bartending School treat bartending like an art form. There are subtle nuances that go into pouring the perfect beer, crafting a cocktail, and handling the difficult situations that come up at the bar. The school covers these and other topics in three core classes: Mixology, TIPS (Training for Intervention Procedures), and Flair. Instructors and students work in a classroom that simulates a bar environment with a POS system, authentic bartending supplies, and real-world gravity. Upon graduation, additional training takes place at three working bars.
