    How to become a bartender?

    I'm about to graduate but the field I was studying just doesn't suit me. I find bartending an interesting profession, but where do I start? Should I attend bartending school or just go straight to bars and ask to be an apprentice?

    Do you know Tom Cruise?

    Check out Cocktail. If you have what it takes, just rock up and show them some tricks.

    Also helps if you have a visa.

    Grab a coca cola
    Grab a vodka
    Mix
    Wah la, you are a bartender. lol

    You can get a little book on how to mix some common drinks. Most people will order RED or WHITE wine, a bottle of beer, or a liquor + mixer. Then you only need to know how to make some of the most common drinks such as Margarita, Mojito, etc. Not all places serve all of those drinks anyways.

    Inspiration, time and money. This is not necessarily something that can be taught.

    ...be sure to grow a hipster mustache if you want ppl to call you a "mixologist."

    Think there are some schools in 'merica in all seriousness.
