Bartenders use to be a guy behind the counter at a bar who poured a beer for their customers or maybe a shot of whiskey. It’s only in recent history, the last 100 years or so, that a bartender has had to learn any one of a thousand different drinks out there people might order. And, naturally, those drinks can be different in different area or different countries even themselves! They also have to be a person who is willing to listen since the drunker a customer gets, the more likely they are to tell their troubles to the world. So celebrate those bartenders you know, and if you know them really well you might want to consider a life change.
How to celebrate – Learn how to pour and mix drinks properly. Play bartender at your own party. Write your own bartender drink guide.
