Bartender Tips

 

1/2 oz. of liquor is equal to 1 count -  Using a pourer on your bottle, to measure 1 - 1/2 oz. of liquor, count "1001...1002...1003" as you are pouring.
Highball - fill glass two-thirds full of ice before adding liquor then add the mixer.  Don't stir drinks with carbonated mixers.
Cocktails, lowballs, and other shaken or stirred drinks - fill shaker half-full of ice.  For lowballs, fill the glass about half-full of ice before pouring drink.
Shaken drinks that contain light cream - drinks can be made as blended drinks, substituting vanilla ice cream for the light cream.
Blended drinks - first fill blender half-full of ice.  Add more ice if necessary as you are blending.
Stemmed glassware - stemmed glassware are used for pre-chilled drinks.  When a drink recipe calls for a stemmed glass, the drink always has to be pre-chilled before pouring into the glass.
Rock, or bucket glassware are us ed for drinks that are not pre-chilled.
Cooler, collins, or chimney are names the same type of glassware.  These glasses are used for multi-liquor and mix drinks.
Wine glasses - White wineglasses are usually longer and narrow than red.
Shooter or cordial glassware are used for shooters or after dinner cordials.
