Advanced Mixology

Advanced Mixology Course


Raising the Bar, Advanced 3-Day Bar Program

The Advanced Mixology course is an intense 3-day program designed for professional bartenders who seek extra knowledge. The course will teach you the art of matching ingredients and mixing your own signature cocktails. Also, learn how to create your own liqueurs, bitters, shrubs and syrups as well as how to create infusions like “Serrano infused Cachaca” or use base infusion techniques to flavor your own spirits and make custom cocktail ingredients.

Throughout this course you’ll learn how to create and use various ingredients from scratch, used in the most prestigious bar programs. These in-house ingredients will assist in creating a cocktail menu that stands out in a major way!

We will guide you into the world of freshly Crafted Cocktails & Molecular Mixology and show you that it´s not as difficult as many people say.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Bartenders aren't born; they have been taught.

Imitate, assimilate and innovate are the rules we instill in our students. We start everything by copying. It’s how we learn to do anything! Assimilation happens when we’ve spent so much time mimicking the body movements, ideas, and techniques that we’ve learned practiced over and over again become internalized. We can call on them and reproduce them easily. This is when you can start to Innovate.

As you're studying in an actual bar, not a mock bar set up to look like a facility, you have convenient access to learning and nosing a fully stocked collection of a craft bar.

Our bar equipment is all commercial grade and set up to service the public. We feel the best way to learn is inside the actual facility. Built to code and actually services guests.

Our stations are second to none, fully equipped with stocked double wells, cubed and crushed ice. Each station also has a glass rinser, a soda gun, and complete bar tools.


Boost your confidence with us

It is extremely important to learn in a quality training facility. Our courses and classes are always held in the actual Craft Cocktail Bar & Real Nightclubs. Top-notch facilities are important for our students to capitalize.

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.”

The difference between bartending and mixology is that bartending is the art of making cocktails, while mixology is the art of creating them. Mixology often involves more complex ingredients and flavors outside of creating the classics. We cover mixology concepts and practices within this course.

This form of teaching sets 786-BARTEND way ahead of courses that have been in existence for over 30 years. Giving you the maximum experience! Oh, and parking is on us.
