Hi welcome to watch mojo.com. My name is Sam Arbeck and I will be your host today. This is the bar tending 101 course for all of you aspiring bar tenders out there and I am going to teach you how to make drinks, how to pour them, how to spud.
The most important thing in making a good drink is making it right with the right proportions. To do that you need certain things to measure the amount of alcoholic you put in it. Every drink has at least one ounce of alcohol in it and this is pour things here measure them.
If two fix spouts with two different colors on them which I will explain in a moment and you have your free pour spout, and a jigger. Jiggers come in different shapes and sizes but again they hold at least one ounce. How this two works?
The fix pourers, is there are two ball bearings inside and the amount of alcohol that comes out is indicated by the color. This one is an ounce and a half, and this one is a quarter of an ounce. As you pour it the ball bearing slips forward and lets the alcohol come out.
To get what you need for bar tending it cost you around $40. That is going to get you, your shaker, your glass, your jigger your spoon and a lot of your measuring spouts. Your shaker is generally what use to make your drinks in it, and there are different shakers.
This one you do not need a glass for when you put your alcohol in the shaker shake it up. This one on the other hand you are going to need a glass for it, put it on the top and you are going to shake it up. And when you finish you strain it. The strainer in particular is for making Martini’s especially the classic professional way. You do not want ice on your Martini. People will complain.
Every drink you make should come with ice, your alcohol, your chasers and your garnish, your mixers. Here is how to prepare at least one garnish, it is a lime. It is pretty simple. You cut of the two ends of your lime, cut it down in the middle the most important part especially if you are bartender for real is you just want to cut down just about half way. That is going to allow you to put it on the glass.
Anything you need to know is what the glasses are called and what drinks going them. This is a cocktail glass or Martini glass. This is an old fashioned glass to put whiskey or something neat. This is as close you will get to a snifter, put something like Girl Marni in here and lastly, appeals there a beer glass. It should be frosted. Most people do not know it but the most important thing about making a drink is the ice. You want to fill up your glasses as much as possible. When you are bent over vomiting on the side of the street it is not because of the alcohol you had it is because the mix you had in your drink. The more ice you have, the less mix you have.
