Course Lessons

  • Lesson 1 - INTRODUCTION, TASTING, HISTORY

    Learn the history, traditions, and production methods behind each major category of alcoholic beverage (vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, bourbon, and Scotch), and discuss their flavor profiles, taste popular brands, and learn the most common uses for each liquor.

  • Lesson 2 - MIXOLOGY TECHNIQUES

    This very hands-on session will cover recipes and mixing techniques for both classic and modern cocktails. You’ll learn all about bar setup, glassware, pouring, mixing techniques for each type of drink, best practices, service speed and working clean, recipes, and popular cocktails.

  • Lesson 3 - CLASSIC COCKTAILS

    While the majority of cocktails included in these ponderous tomes are never ordered in the real world, there are several dozen drinks that every good bartender should commit to memory. Anthony Caporale has compiled these must-know cocktails into his "Bartender's Canon," and will lead you through mixing them all!

  • Lesson 4 - CULINARY MIXOLOGY

    You will learn to make a Seafood Bloody Mary, add bell peppers to your Mojitos, and spice up your martinis with fresh basil.

  • Lesson 5 - BAR MANAGEMENT

    You'll be introduced to the basics of running a successful bar program, including how to create a profitable drink menu, developing signature recipes, inventory management, product ordering, and theft prevention. The second half will explore the latest trends in wine and beer cocktails, and how to incorporate these drinks into your beverage offerings.

  • Lesson 6 - COCKTAIL RECIPE DEVELOPMENT

    This class will cover the templates behind successful drinks, and provide you with a solid foundation for developing signature cocktails that not only taste great, but are also profit-drivers. Once you've mastered the theory behind recipe development, you'll get to try your hand at creating your very own liquid masterpiece!
