Good to know, the guys who stay behind bars serving you drinks that make you happy and take your mind of you problems are far more technical than they seem, bartending is a study on its ownand no the learn-on-tye-job experience we always thought it was. A bartender is a person who formulates and serves alcoholic or soft drink beverages behind the bar, usually in a licensed establishment. Bartenders also usually maintain the supplies and inventory for the bar. A bartender can generally mix classic cocktails such as a Cosmopolitan, Manhattan, Old Fashioned, and Mojito. Almost 60% of bartenders are females. A good bartender will also possess a positive attitude, and will have a willingness to give their best and constantly learn new skills. A good bartender will possess confidence, attitude and personality, but always have respect for customers, fellow staff and their venue. There is always more to do behind the bar. Glass Will Break, Drinks Will Spill. Keep the Bar Clean. Know How to Pour Alcohol. Be an expert of drink recipes. Be a professional. Know How to Talk to Your Customers, but Keep your conversations short. .....as a bartender, take this to mind.
