Heads up, bartenders, here's a book for you. Whether you're a rookie or an old pro, Lori Marcus' Bartending Inside-Out is a must. —Nightclub & Bar Magazine
This concise reference offers those who have chosen bartending as their primary profession the tools to achieve success. In addition to teaching the basics—how to pour; the differences between the vast array of gins, scotches, tequilas, and vodkas; how beer, wine, and spirits are made; and which glassware to use for each beverage—the guide provides critical information on the nuts and bolts of customer service, checking id's, dealing with intoxicated customers, tipping, and inspiring a bar crew to work as a team. A glossary identifying common bar terms and recipes for more than 125 cocktails supplement the text.
