The Fundamentals and Foundation of Bartending and Mixology

The Fundamentals you need to know to start your career as an effective bartender

  Enroll in Course

The Fundamentals and Foundation of Bartending and Mixology is an in-depth structured lesson plan for learning the fundamentals of this craft. Bartending is an incredibly rewarding pursuit that can provide a great deal of joy and networking opportunities. This course includes the strongest and most practical keys and techniques for bartending that I know.

When learning a new skill it is common for people to jump ahead of themselves and attempt to learn very complicated and advanced stuff before mastering the basics. Why? Because we are impatient and lack the foresight to take baby steps towards an end goal. Do yourself a favor and LEARN THE FOUNDATIONS FIRST. This will prevent you from picking up any bad habits, and will help attain the level of skill you want more quickly and effectively.

The goal of this course is to create great tasting quality drinks for complete beginners, and also provide value for more experienced students. Get ready for an AMAZING course!

Joe the Bartender
Joe the Bartender

Since taking his first course in Bartending 11 years ago Joe has had an adventurous journey in the craft. With an impressive resume from Sports Bars, Cigar Lounges, Bar Mitzvahs all the way to Night Clubs, Restaurants and Celebrity Private Events. His passion fueled him to push and challenge himself every year to grow in the field, all the way to being recruited by the Atlanta Professional Bartending School of America! He now has 3 Certifications in Bartending, Mixology and Serve Safe Alcohol. He's trained over a half a thousand Bartenders and had his own event location where he now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. This native Brooklyn, New Yorker has travelled up and down the east coast shaking things up behind the bar and you might've seen him in his 15 seconds of fame (lol) in Academy Award winning Director Ang Lee's film "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" but he is most at home behind the bar and sharing his unique bartending passion and knowledge with those just as eager to learn.

"Bruh, two days after I graduated I got a bartending job. They were impressed with my pouring skills/count and wanted to be sure i can make sure I can make a proper martini (which by the way, I was the first person to make a stir instead of shake). A customer came in and asked for a Godfather, my trainer didn’t know what it was and asked me. I told him, “That’s a SCARY ASS, so it’s Scotch and Amaretto.” Sure enough he asked his 3rd best friend google to verify, looked at me and said, “I’m fucking impressed.” Thanks for all the help and guidance brotha, couldn’t have done it without ya! Now let’s make that $$$."

"Joe was a very good teacher. He was patient, hands on and fun to work with. He loves what he does and you can definitely see that. One thing I definitely appreciate about him is that he’s always available and willing to help."

"My experience was phenomenal! I learned a wealth of knowledge about alcohol and serving responsibly. I took the class which gave me borrowed time to study being that I work full-time. Joe gives you all the tools youj ned to retain the information, pass the exam and use your talents to be successful after class. Classes were always entertaining and fun. One of the best things I could have ever done was attend this school. Definitely a great investment!"

"Class is fire! I had so much fun and it made it easier to learn the material. Not only did I learn to bartend, but also learned much about all the different alcohol I’d be serving! Definitely worth it. :) "

"This is my testimonyof working with a professional instructor. I met Joe during my 2nd week of Bartending School. When I met him I wondered why was he so hard on the class compared to the last instructor my previous week. He acknowledged the students and showed ability to develop relationships with us. He showed dedication to teaching, he was patient caring and had such a kind personality. He gave us the ability to learn without giving us answers he didn’t let up in no way. He took his time to make sure we all got the concepts of measuring & mixing the appropriate ingredients. He played an important role in my life to become a successful in what I enjoyed doing. Since then I’ve been Bartending for over a year doing my own events. Working with Joe showed me what Professional means. I’m officially a well certified mixologist! Joe thank you for believing in me. You’re Awesome!!!!"

"Joe is a hell of a teacher who only wants the best for his students. I’m blessed to have had him as my Bartending Professor. As the informatioin I learned and now know is more then what other bartenders know that I work with. "

"Joe is a passionate and informed instructor. He taught us the necessary bartending and mixology skillswhich allowed us to Start our Own Business! His ability to teach and motivate with humor, stories, experience and care are essential to the success of his students. We count Joe as a friendand a Mentor.
