Class Description


What you'll learn in this bartending class:

The TIPS & Mixology course is an intensive day of bartending which is devoted to teaching you all the major skills of professional bartenders.

Part I: TIPS Training

The first session of the course is devoted to legal issues of bartending. TIPS (Training in Intervention Procedures by Servers of alcohol) is a nationwide certification program that teaches the responsible serving of alcohol. Issues addressed include: checking IDs, the physiological and psychological effects of consuming alcohol, and the best ways to keep guests under control. The TIPS portion of the course uses an interactive case method where various scenarios are acted out to give you an accurate portrayal of the proper methods for handling difficult situations. At the end of this session, you'll take the TIPS certification exam and receive your certification card in the mail.

Part II: The Art of Mixology

Unlike longer and more expensive courses, The Art of Mixology does not teach you to memorize drink recipes. Rather, we focus on learning and understanding the essential skills behind making any alcoholic drink, even frozen drinks, cocktails, daiquiris, and layered shots. Once you've mastered these skills you can make any drink imaginable and memorization will come with time and practice. You'll learn bar setup, how to distinguish between different alcohols and mixers, and how to use all bar equipment. The course emphasizes hands-on training; students make a full range of drinks under the supervision and guidance of an experienced Boston-area bartender. After completing the first session, you'll receive Harvard's "Art of Mixology" certificate—veritable proof of your training.
