Practice So You Can Strive for Perfection of Your Craft

You'll want to always have the fundamentals down. For instance, when someone orders a martini, a margarita, or a Long Island Iced Tea, you want to be able to make the drink without thinking. This leaves you plenty of time to connect with your guest and add some flair, too.

Always Be Open to Experimentation

Every drink invented had to start somewhere, and most began with someone just experimenting with flavors until they got it right. So, when someone orders a drink you've never made or asks for something original, be open to it. Plus, always try your mess ups. Your small mess up could lead to a signature drink one day.
