Ever fancied yourself behind the bar in a swanky cocktail bar with a crowd of people drinking your drinks and loving every move you make? Well, keep dreaming because those days are over for quite a while.
One thing that is certain is that there will be a day or night when the bars and restaurants do eventually open back up, albeit in a new altered reality. In the meantime the only thing and safest thing you can do is brush up on your own bartending skills… You might not have the crowd in-front of you, but the techniques are the same in a bar with one customer as they are with a hundred…even if that customer happens to be you as well !
I’ve put together a collection of illustrations showing in a simple and clear form the actions of the main classical techniques that all bartenders worth their salt rim should know. If the only thing you’ve ever shaken in your life was a baby’s rattle when you were 1 then this visual guide will help you get to grips with some of the tools of the trade used by the pros…except your at home!
If this has you interested then the new step is to learn the cocktails, starting with the classics… on my regular blog post ” Around the world in 80 cocktails and sketches I’ve showcased unique cocktail recipes paired with history and a sketch but by passed the classics… in the coming weeks I will give insight into the classic cocktails that every home cocktail lover should know…along with the history of each one…because all cocktails have a history.
Meanwhile please enjoy the illustrations. Thank you for reading, please check out the links to my Instagram and fb page!
