How to become a Bartender:

Bar tending has always been a popular choice when it comes to making extra money. If you are someone who doesn't mind working very late nights and mixing business with pleasure, then bar tending is a great option for you.

What is a Bartender:

A bartender is an individual who serves drinks (usually alcohol), in a licensed establishment, behind a bar to customers.

How to become a Bartender:

1. Enroll in a Bartender Course: The first thing you will need to do is enroll in a bar tending course. Bar tending classes typically happen five times a week for more or less a month. Once you have reached the end of your course, you will be required to make all the common drinks for your teacher. There are many teachers that choose to put you under pressure by giving you a list of drinks and an allocated time period to make then to see how you can handle it. If you don't have time for physical classes, you are also able to join a bar tending school located online. With the online classes, you are required to memorize how all the drinks are made but don't worry, this is all done at a pace that is convenient to you.

2. Look for On-The-Job Training Positions: There are many bars that offer on-the-job training and this is a very good idea if you are new to bar tending, just to expand your experience and knowledge. On-the-job training involves training you to become a bartender and could possible hire you if you are skilled/trained to their standards. Often, before managing the bar yourself, you will be asked to shadow one of the bartenders.

3. Keep Up With The Trend: One of the most common parts of being a bartender, is knowing how to make the most popular drinks, that means keeping up to date with the most popular drinks at the time and familiarizing yourself constantly with the new drinks.

4. Practice Makes Perfect: Continuously practice making drinks. Give yourself an allocated time and see if you can mix a certain amount of drinks in the given time. Keep trying to beat your own score. This is the only way to become an excellent bartender.
