Popular Drink Recipes

This list comes from the question: “what are the most popular drink recipes that I MUST know to be a proficient bartender.” Watch the video above for a more in depth discussion of what the most popular drinks are that you should know. 

These are taken directly from the daily, in the trenches grind happening behind many bars today.

Don’t be fooled into thinking these are the ONLY popular drinks you’ll make; any drink on this site you should at least be a little familiar with…But these are a few of the slightly more common popular drink recipes that you should definitely have memorized and be proficient at making when you’re bartending.

Now we’ve skipped the obvious easy drinks that you don’t really need explaining for:

Rum and Coke…

Vodka soda/cran/tonic…

Gin and tonic…

Jack and coke…

All you need to know for these is how to pour a proper 1oz-1.5oz shot over ice into a glass (If you need help with that go here to watch the video: how to free pour like a pro in 5 minutes) with a basic mixer or filler on top.

But the rest of these are the über popular drinks that can possibly trip you up because some of them are a little more complicated than the rum and coke.
