Bartender’s Drinks Guide
Be an Excellent Bartender
One annoying thing about having a bar is the innovative recipes that lists thousands upon thousands of absolutely useless bar drink recipes. There’s no way on God’s green earth that your average bar could even stock such a wide array of necessary ingredients.
To be a good bartender, you need to know a couple dozen drink recipes – the most commonly requested drinks in most parts of the world.
You DO NOT need to go through the big bartender’s black book, trying to remember how to make all the cocktails.
In addition to needing to know the base two dozen or so, you’ll also need to familarize yourself with local specialties. In every part of every country in every city or town, you’ll find some type of unique drink concoction or specific shooter recipe that is local. Get to know which shooters and cocktails are popular around your area.
The term ‘mixed drinks’ can literally mean any drink requiring two or more ingredients including alcohol, soda, juice, flavorings etc. For the purposes of this site, we’ll just list all the “well” drink recipes (Rum & coke, Rye & ginger etc) here and all the other mixed drink recipes are broken down further below.
