Hi, my name is Moe Harris and today I’m in the locker in Warrenton, Virginia showing you some basic flair bartending techniques.
Now we’ve already gone over some pouring techniques, some napkins, some garnishes a little bit of everything. Now, I’m just going to show a couple of random tricks that you can do behind your bar that are not difficult but they definitely, they get the applause and more importantly to you the bartender, the get the tip okay. The first one is just a pouring technique. When you’re making safe, a few shooter at a time okay. If my customer wants—let just say three shooters for them and a couple of friends, all you going to need is three cups to ultimately put the shooters in. No, I’m going to need four tins to actually make the drink in, okay. Now, what we’re going to need a three containers to hold the actual drink. The last one, you’ll see well that for shortly okay but the first I’ll start off with icing this things up alright.
So you can ice it up regularly okay just like that. You can ice it up with flair just like that okay or you could do or add a little flair trick. Keep the ice in there and of course save that last ice cube except get in your cup okay. Now, next you’re going to make your shooter. Now there’s a million different kinds of shooters, I'm not going to make anything in particular, I’m just going to pour some liquid in here to show you dissimilate the shooter okay. So let just say I get one in there, bounce okay and there we go.
Now, once these things are been in here for a little while and they’re sufficiently chilled, all I have to do is stock them all together. Now last but not the least, we do need this last one. This almost going to act as strainer, what is going to do is, it’s just going to hold the ice back that’s in these cups size. So I’m going to do is hold it, make a little smiley face okay. What I mean by smiley face, if you’re holding it like this, it just going to make a mess. You got to hold it up okay. Don’t worry about those ice cubes, it’s down to happen. You’re going to hold it up, you’re going to pour, pour and pour and there you go, you pour it a three shots at one time with a little bit of flair.
Now really is a simple technique, it’s a simple trick. All you have to do is stick cups together and in pouring things is having the way amount of ice in each container. What’s going to happen, is the ice were it act as a spacer to allow you to pour in each and individual cup. If for example, I didn’t have enough ice in the bottom one, you would see that both the bottom and the middle one would pour right into that middle cup combining a different shooters and that’s not a good thing.
So once you’ve determined, once you’ve got exactly how much ice to put in this container, the trick itself is very simple. I’m going to show you one more line of trick right now.
