What do bartending services include?

From martinis to cosmopolitans, you can rely on bartenders to shake things up. Alcoholic drinks are always an excellent addition to the menu for any occasion. You can even have someone cater cocktails for a fancier affair. Here are some services you can get when hiring bar staff:  

Full-service bartending

Depending on the occasion, you can hire a full bartending service. They offer different packages depending on the size of your event. Complete services include the bartenders, barbacks, mixing, drinks, and serving equipment. Some services also have separate packages available if you want to provide the alcohol for your event. Some go to the lengths to plan a special menu of drinks for the occasion. Taskers will be in charge of setting up the bar, serving the drinks, and even cleaning up afterwards.

Planning the menu

You can add flair to any hospitality service with a customised menu. It is a good idea to hire someone who has attention to detail. Some cocktail bartenders for hire include menu planning to their services. This may consist of planning sessions and pre-event tasting. They can also customise menus based on speciality drinks, fresh and seasonal ingredients, and the theme of an event. 

Choosing a mobile bar

A mobile bartender brings the party to any venue with a bar on wheels. You can have it set up at any location, like hotel function rooms or your backyard. You have the option to customise its look depending on the theme. It is an efficient option because of the many elements present on the bar. The panel bars and folding shelves of a mobile bar make it easier to serve guests their favourite cocktails during private events. 

Mixing speciality cocktails and drinks

When hiring a cocktail bartender, you are usually after their skills and speciality drinks. You may need to provide the spirits, wine, and beer. You may also need to provide equipment for them although some choose to bring their own equipment. Professionals may speak with you in advance to advise you on what drinks to provide. It is essential to communicate what drinks you want to be served during your party or corporate event.
