DRINK RECIPES

drinks1

As you probably know and realize, there are hundreds and hundreds of drink recipes.  It is impossible to know them all, and even if you did learn all the current drinks, new ones are constantly being made up.  So, the good news is, you don’t need to know them all!  I have gotten many drink orders for cocktails that I have NEVER heard of.. When this happens, I simply ask, “Do you know what is in that?”  The person either does or looks it up on their phone, and then I’m able to make it for them.

That being said, you should really know some of the basic drink recipes.   If you don’t know these common drink recipes, you may look like you don’t know what you’re doing behind the bar.  I have made a list of these drinks below! These are drinks that YOU WILL be asked to make behind the bar.
