Bar Smarts seems like the kind of thing that everyone, whether you’re in the industry or not, can benefit from. This program, put together by some of the finest minds in the cocktail world, does a great job of educating on shaking vs stirring to providing some basic cocktail recipes for you to learn.
Once of my favorite parts talks about how to build a cocktail. Some of you avid readers may recall one of my previous posts (and a personal favorite) where I discussed ratios and substitutions, the building blocks of creating cocktails. Bar Smarts addresses this succinctly and intelligently, and it will provide you with a better understanding of, if nothing else, the cocktail list at your local watering hole.
So whether you’re an industry professional (in which case you should definitely do this) or just an avid drinker, you’ll benefit from Bar Smarts. Remember, the cocktail is king (even in this beer day and age) and knowledge is power. Wow, that was deep, huh.
