What is the Best Bartending School in the World?
This is a very difficult question to answer and will of course depend upon what you are looking for in a bartending school. However, one thing is certainly true and that is that not all bartending schools in the world are equal and some do not offer courses that will really put you any further forward. Rather than think of there being a best bartending school in the world, the question you should be asking really is, “which is the best bartending school in the world for me?”
Bartending Courses are Not all Alike
While many courses may run you through some basic cocktail mixing and throw in something niche like a Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee or a Batida the best bartending schools in the world will not just throw recipes at you they will teach you the underlying principals and concepts of the mixology and thinking behind each drink. You will find it much easier to remember cocktail recipes when you have a full understanding of the reason that certain mixtures are chosen and you’ll find a new-found appreciation for the art of mixology. At Spirit Lab London we make sure you’re well prepared for your journey towards being an outstanding bartender, the Rockstar Bartender in fact. You will not only learn a useful and interesting selection of cocktails you will get to grips with the chemistry behind each layer of the mixing process. Armed with some expert knowledge you will apply the little touches that make your cocktails turn out perfectly and leaving other bartenders wondering what your secret is. It’s the small things that most people barely notice, like knowing how not to release chlorophyll from the mint leaves when you’re mixing a Mojito, that will make your drinks stand out as a level up from a regular bartender. If you treat the mint leaves incorrectly the drink will turn out bitter instead of brilliant.
