Course Curriculum - 6-Day Advanced Flair Bartending
This is an introduction to flair bartending and its brief history, we say ‘brief’ as flair has only been a part of popular bar culture since around the 1980’s. The introduction will cover flair safety, as spinning, flipping and catching bottles can obviously be dangerous; if you follow the simple safety guidelines, you’ll be fine! Then we will cover the two different types of flair that you will study, working flair and exhibition flair and their differences.
The first practical round of the course is simple, you have to pour a single shot and double shot with both left and right hands. Don’t worry, you don’t have to bounce or jump the shots, you can pour them separately. This gives you the chance to re-familiarize yourself with the flair world.
As the title suggests this round is all about speed! You have to make both a sea breeze and a mojito within 50 seconds. The only catch is that you have to make them perfectly! This means, you can’t forget any of the ingredients and they have to be presented as they would in a bar environment.
Now things step up a gear. You have 2 minutes to make a mojito and a sea breeze cocktail whilst incorporating the 10 WFA orange level moves into your routine! The 10 orange level moves are as follows:
- Arm Stall
- Reverse Swipe
- Flat to Front
- Snatch to Back
- Roll to Switch
- Neck Pour
- Tin Release
- Roll to Pour
This is your chance to prove you are the Cristiano Ronaldo of flair bartending by showing off as much as you can! You will have to demonstrate the 10 orange level exhibition moves within 1 minute and 30 seconds. You do not make any drinks during this part of the course, it is purely your chance to show off and shine behind the bar. The exhibition flair moves are as follows:
- Over to Stall
- Back to Front Nest
- Gun Slings
- 900 to Reverse Beer Grab
- Helicopter on the Tin
- 720 to Pour
- 2 Bottle Flash
- 2 Bottle Multiplex
- Multiplex Nest
- Flick to Tap
This is the final stage of the 6-Day Advanced Flair Bartending; it’s time for you to put everything you have learned into practice. The course only passes gifted flair bartender; as a result, the minimum pass levels are high! Don’t sweat it too much, the key to passing the exam is simple, be well prepared, concentrate on your moves but most of all, enjoy your flair!
