Master Mixology: Advanced Bartending Course
Build on what you learned at Fine Art Bartending in our exciting new Master of Mixology Course launching in March 2024. Taught by our resident in house mixologist, Paul Mitri, our program will teach you advanced mixology techniques in three weeks.
Every class, you’ll taste spirits and build your own cocktail using real and premium ingredients that will make your guest’s taste buds run wild. Your final project will be to design a bespoke cocktail menu, applying what you learned in class.
This is an exciting opportunity to advance from bartender to mixologist!

How is the Master of Mixology Course different from the Commercial Bartending Course?
Our Commercial Bartending Course focuses on bartending habits, memorizing classic recipes, and learning techniques through repetition. The Master of Mixology Course focuses on taste, smell, and working with real ingredients. We also prepare you to develop bar management skills so you can book your own gigs. By the end of the program, you will have the tools to build creative cocktails from your imagination.
