Hey guys! My name is Moe Harris and I’m here at the Professional Bartending School in Arlington, Virginia. Today, I’m going to show you little bit about how to pour properly. Pouring properly really is essential in drink making. And you do want the proper proportions of alcohol and juices in your drink, otherwise, you just know the ingredients and if you knew the ingredients or something that’s good. But proportions is equally important. I could tell you that a cake has equal parts of flour and butter and milk and sugar and eggs but pouring those together in equal parts doesn’t make a cake, neither does throwing ingredients together make a drink. So, I’m going to show you how to pour one ounce, okay. One ounce is a really simple thing to do. We count one ounce with a four count and let me show an example for a four counts. You grab a bottle. You always want to grab it by the neck. You do have a lot more control. And all I’m going to do is hold it upside down and just give it a quick one-two-three-four, let’s give it a try, one-two-three-four, just like that. And hopefully it that was done properly that’s just going to fill this little one ounce shoot glass here to the tippi-tippi-top. Let’s see how we did, just like that. Now, really counting to four doesn’t make it an ounce, counting to four at the right speed makes it an ounce. Essentially, you could count to anything as long as you count it at the right speed. The reason why I choose to use four is it really does help with other amounts when we have to pour half ounce 1, 2. An ounce and a half is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and two ounces is 8 and so on and so forth. And for those of you who are having difficulty in counting, let me see if I could break it down for you one last time. One ounce should be a basic, one, two, three and four. Let’s see how we did, unbelievable.
