Posted:I think it is Dube that carries a couple of videos as well.

Don't forget that working with the cups is just as important as the bottles, learn artistic pouring styles as well, glass work (like pyramids and balances) and that mixing the drinks is what it is about (if you intend to get behind a bar with it).

Having liquid in them not only gets you used to the weight but also the "slosh" factor, when the liquid moves during hand spins and throws.

I love flair.

Posted:ditto well said Pele, in the end when it comes to Bar Flairing remember that its also called peformance bartending, the whole point is to entertain the customer and pour their drink, so thereofure u have to know there are some tricks that just arent possible due to liquid spillage etc, if your free and not got any jobs to do might aswell play around iwth some empty bottles then but if its the customer that need serving, flair all you like just dont forget why your doing it wink

Posted:no, take them will

mint sauce, what i would suggest is that you wrap your bottle in silver gaffa tape, it will stop it smashing and glass going every where

i knwo it will make it ugly s sin, but if you get glass smashed every where tahts it game over

He did a flair workshop at the Dublin convention last year... I'm sure DevKev knows who he is, he teaches barmen in Scotland sometimes I think....maybe he can help...

Posted:then learn that

dont learn to juggle three, learn to juggle two in one hand

it takes about two hours to get up to three balls using y method

ill teach you to do coloums, then crcles, and then you work on both hands, and you have every basic pattern you will need for three balls
