These artisan bartenders are often referred to as mixologists as practitioners of mixology. Mixology, although it may sound like a modern word, actually dates back to the nineteenth century and was resurrected by the more recent trend of transformative bartenders who wanted to be able to differentiate their craft with a traditional word that would show their knowledge and care in relation to mixing cocktails, often with a specific fixation on prime, fresh ingredients.
Learning About Mixology
Mixology was all based on traditional techniques bringing a real craft back into what had become a dark era of cocktail making. Since the movement took hold newer techniques now hold true alongside the traditional but what is key among it all is a focus on quality ingredients, thoughtful creation, and a full understanding of how and why mixology works. By learning at one of the best mixology schools you will be able to get to grips with the base concepts of mixology that the guru bartenders use to create amazing future classic cocktails at top venues across the world.
