What Makes a Great Bar

I wanted to dedicate this post to things I thought everyone should know before we begin our adventure so that we are all on the same page.  I’ll take the time to explain what makes the perfect mixed drink, perfect bar food, and what overall makes for a great bar, etc!

First let’s start with the perfect cocktail recipe.  There is a secret to making the perfect libation.

  • If the drink is too sweet do not count on many people ordering a second.
  • On the other hand, when the bartender thinks they are helping out the customer by making the drink incredibly strong a second one is going to be ordered way later than normal.  No one wants to choke down a Cosmopolitan.
  • The perfect cocktail has three parts to it.  The liquor, the sweet and the sour.  Of course we can play around with these things but that is the basic cocktail.
