Top Bartending related questions

Yes, bartenders can service non-alcoholic beverages. These are known as “mocktails”. They are flavoured like popular alcoholic beverages minus the alcohol. You can go through the menu with your Tasker. You can set a drinks menu for the evening or simply brief them on popular drinks customers look for at the bar. 

For restaurants, leftover liquor is properly stored by employees and bartenders. There is no need to worry about what happens to it. For events, most liquor is shouldered by you. So, it is your decision on what will happen to leftovers. You can choose to store the liquor back at home or give them away to guests. Just be sure to give them away responsibly!

It is always great to look for experience and skill in a bartender you hire. They need to be able to prepare many alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages asked by customers. Bartenders should have good communication skills and can assess a customer’s needs and preferences to make recommendations. 

Be sure to hire a bartender with a Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificate. This shows that a bartender went through Technical and Further Education (TSA) in hospitality schools, private training institutes or online courses. It is also a plus if they completed certificates in hospitality. It is crucial to make sure bartenders for hire have this to avoid any complications upon hiring them. 

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.
