It takes effort to learn something new and this tricky.
How can you perform the bartender’s tricks?
Well, the first thing you can do is buy the bartender tools. This will be the first step toward your dream of appearing cool and impressing people with this new skill of yours. You should get familiar with what each tool does and how it is set up. If you are not thorough with the tools and their functions, you might get in trouble. The next thing you can do is directly start learning the skills related to the tricks that the bartenders perform at bars. You can go and ask them directly or watch online videos on how to do it. And while you are at it, you can also master the skill of mixing drinks and making the perfect cocktails. This will give you an added edge when showing your skills off to your friends.
The items included in the tools:
There are different sets of bartender tools that you may find in the market. All of them contain some different tools from the other. A complete bartender kit would include the following: a cocktail shaker with a strainer, jigger, mojito muddler (to bring maximum flavor to the fruits and herbs), mixing spoon, Hawthorne strainer (making the margarita free from ice and pulp), corkscrew, liquor pourers, bottle stoppers (for bottles sitting out in the open), and pourer caps and pourer brushes. This is what you would need to feel like you are all ready to start working on your skills. Some packages also throw in some bonus items into this kit to provide an addition to you over other websites.
These bonus items would be a velvet bag that you could use when traveling (helps in preventing scratches on your tools and useful when taking the set to another place), an e-book teaching you some good cocktail mixing tips, tricks, and recipes, and another book full of recipes.
