Tools of the trade: What you need to know.

Every good bartender knows that keeping tools of the trade clean, close by and in working order, is what gives them the fluidity to do their job.

Keeping tools clean is important as there is no “5 second” rule if it lands on the floor.  Your guests want to see that they are in a clean establishment while enjoying cocktails, not worrying if they will be drinking from a dirty glass.

Then, keeping your tools close by and in working order is essential, as you  can lose momentum and fall behind fast on a busy night, if your tools are not working properly.

And finally, It is equally important to always use your own tools like a wine crank or bottle opener, as you will get used to the “feel” of your tools and this can make your job fast and easy.

Happy tending!
