With these basic recipes, you can make practically any combination and number of drinks that are simply slight variations of the basic cocktail. Once you know the basic drink and preparation method, it's very simple to change one ingredient and have a different drink.In our schools, we focus on teaching our graduates how make the basic drinks properly from memory. We don't think it's necessary to try to teach over 300 different drinks (many of which are outdated and seldom, if ever ordered) in a short one or two week course. We want our bartenders to be able to make the often-ordered drinks quickly, without looking them up in a "drink rolodex" or "flash cards".

PBSAwill receive your order immediately and your laminated drink list will be shipped by USPS regular mail the next business day. This is the same list that many PBSA bartending schools give to every student as a part of their supply package. These are the same recipes taught to over 7,500 bartenders each year. The list is professionally laminated with 5 mil ultra-clear lamination. It is waterproof and tear-proof! All of our recipes are formulated to professional pouring measurements and glassware. Recipe books you can buy at the book store or on the internet are usually compilations of drink recipes from many different sources. If you spend time analyzing these recipes such as the Mr. Boston book, you will find tall drinks with recipe amounts of 4, 4 1/2, 5, 5 1/2 and 6 ounces. Yet all of these drinks go in the same glass which typically holds 5 ounces when filled with ice. A professional bartender cannot make drinks using these inconsistent recipes. The bar owner or manager controls how much alcohol their bar will pour in each drink, regardless of what a bookstore manual says. Our drink recipes are all formulated with this consistent, easy-to-learn method. PBSA believes in teaching a responsible pour consistent with the major responsible service programs such as ServSafe, TIPS and TAM.
