A WORKSHOP ON THE ART OF BARTENDING
SATURDAY 11TH AUGUST 2012
FOR ALL THE HOTEL MANAGEMENT STUDENTS
A workshop on the art of Bartending was organized for the students on Saturday 11th August 2012.
The workshop was conducted by ‘The Flaming Trio’ from Mumbai – An organization which specializes in Bartending. They are have represented India in numerous Bartending Competitions and have won many International and national awards.
Lounges and Bars are very popular these days and are good revenue earners. A good bartender has become a sought-after talent among venue owners and marketers to help advertise a liquor product or the opening of a bar establishment and for bar operations
The aim of the workshop was to introduce the students to Bartending as a lucrative career option.
In recent years bartending has become a show business . A good batender is like a good Chef – he is able to invent new cocktails and also present them in a manner that is attractive and appealing to the customer . He should therefore be an expert in Mixology – the art of mixing different alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks to make a flavorsome and delicious cocktail and Flair bartending which is the practice of bartenders entertaining guests, clientele or audiences with the manipulation of bar tools (e.g. cocktail shakers) and liquor bottles in tricky, dazzling ways.. Recently, there is a noticeable rise in bartenders combining prominent mixology knowledge and flair bartending to enhance the guests’ overall experience and thus increase profitability.
The Flaming Trio gave the students an introduction regarding mixed drinks and cocktails. They then showed the students how to make various cocktails – classical as well as contemporary, using the art of mixology and flair bartending. The students were fascinated when the Flaming Trio displayed Flair Bartending with flaming bottles.
The workshop was a great success and now many students are looking forward to adding Bartending to their qualifications.
