Do you want to step up your party game? Maybe you want to impress your friends and family at the annual barbecue. Or, are you just curious how those bartenders make delicious, refreshing drinks? Alchemix Bar is going to teach you the basics of bartending.
Once you have those down, we will play around with more advanced techniques. The world is your martini glass, shake things up!
What will you learn from Alchemix
So we'll teach you how to make the drinks, but that's not all. We're going to teach you the "why" behind it all. Why? Mixology is both a science and an art form, and to do it right, you have to know the science.
We can all put shit into a glass and eventually tweak it enough to taste good. But that's not why we're here. We're not here to have a good cocktail. We want the best damn cocktails around.
Alchemix is here for the science of spirits. And the fun of playing around with your favorite ingredients.
What we need from you is a fun, open-minded spirit. There are going to be times when things just don't work. That is ok! Because you still made a cocktail that you can drink, after all.
In the industry, we call that "Research and Development" (R&D). Even the best mixologists in the world make cocktails that taste awful.
It's part of the job, so sometimes you have to adult up and take one on the chin. At the very least, you're going to get a cocktail out of the deal...whether good or not.
You may be asking yourself, "Why the hell should I even read or even try these recipes? Who are you to tell me what to do?" Fair question, we often wonder the same thing.
But, here's the deal, Carl has been a mixologist for more than 8 years. He is self-taught and doesn't get complacent. He is always reading, learning, and trying new techniques to better his craft.
It's not all serious! Mixing and serving cocktails is super fun. Especially when you get the wide-eyed look, and a "wow!" after your friends try that drink you made. So let's get you making those fantastic adult beverages. You will not be disappointed when you're done.
