Course Content Overview
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 1980s. 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. You’ll then study, working flair, exhibition flair, craft flair and their differences as well as how to use them behind the bar when making drinks.
The first practical round is a Free Pour round. You have to pour a selection of 13 pours including, chase pours and a flair pour.
As the title suggests this round is all about speed! You have to make a daiquiri, espresso martini and negroni within 2 min. The only catch is that you have to make them perfectly, you can’t forget any of the ingredients and they have to be presented as they would in a real bar.
Now things step up a gear. You have 4 minutes to make an Espresso Martini and Negroni and perform the allocated moves of the orange level, which are as follows:
- Posluszny Double Napkin
