What Are Craft Cocktails?
If you’re into your cocktails, ‘craft’ is probably a term you’ve come across, but what does it actually mean? It’s a phrase which started to appear on bar menus a few years ago, accompanied by a noticeable rise in cocktail quality. The principles used to make this type of cocktail include tailoring every element of the preparation to the drink itself. This means considering the best ingredients, mixing, serving, preparing and garnishing of the cocktail. When undergoing a bar consultancy service, it’s something which can completely transform an establishment’s drinks menus and even help them to develop a more luxury service. We can also organise drinks receptions run by our expert team to wow your clients with our impressive cocktails.
Throwing Mixology Into the Mix
Mixology classes found at good bartender schools will teach you more about the complex elements which go into making such top quality cocktails. Mixology training covers many of the aspects required to create them, giving students an in-depth understanding of the specialist techniques and fundamental skills involved. As an award-winning bartenders school, The Spirit Lab combines the tricks to mastering mixology with good bartending practices, customer service and feeling confident with the speed of service behind the bar. It’s these skills which are going to help you make the best cocktails while keeping both your employer and customers more than happy.
Advanced Mixology Course
Many of the more in-depth elements which go into quality cocktails are going to require some experience. Therefore, we have an advanced course for those who want to take their bartending career onto the next level or have already completed our International Mixology Course. This includes experimenting with contemporary cocktail making techniques such as ageing, cooking, bitters, smoking of drinks, syrups, foam, garnishes and working with ice. You’ll also look into how to develop a personal mixology style, which is going to help you stand out from other bartenders. In our bartending school lab, you’ll learn the fundamentals of ice manipulation, including the types on the market, as well as how to pick, refrigerate and dilute to create incredible results. The best part is, you’ll get to play and experiment, taking your mixology expertise to dizzy new heights.
