Bartending is one of the best (if not the best) jobs out there; once behind the bar, you become the ringleader of your own intoxicated circus. You know you'll be the center of attention when you walk in, or you wouldn't be doing it. The stage is set, and almost everyone will leave their emotions at home; you can be whoever you want and most of the time say whatever you want; you become whatever character you choose. The best part is that people will pay you to do it, and guess what? If you're good at it, you'll be well compensated. Bartending is rewarding because it allows you to meet people from all walks of life and to be..... Wait for it..... SOCIABLE.
You get to build actual real life friendships and relationships, which I believe we miss out on by being constantly glued to technology. We'd like to teach you the art of bartending. You'll get to see us laugh, joke around, make cocktails, and have a good time—basically everything you should be doing behind the bar anyway. Mixed Up With TGM will be your go-to, with some incredible guests and interviews.
There are thousands of people out there who call themselves "bartenders" or, worse, "mixologists," but they need a reality check because they lack the necessary skills. Someone behind the bar pouring a drink or mixing a cocktail isn't a bartender (let alone a mixologist) any more than I am a '57 Chevy sitting in my garage.
Bartending is a craft with a long history, and in order to claim the title of their craft, one must first become a craftsman. Being a bartender is fun, being the host of your own party is fun, and being a guest at someone else's party and being able to whip up a fun and fancy cocktail with the ingredients you have on hand will make you a superstar.
We created Mixed Up With TGM to show the fun side of bartending while teaching you how to properly pour cocktails, make cocktails with what you have on hand, make you laugh (mostly at our expense), and share some history about your favorite cocktails and spirits. We'll even teach you the difference between a bartender and a mixologist – and maybe throw in a few fun prizes along the way.
Looking forward to working with you!
