Flair bartending is basically the art and skill of entertaining your clientele or audience with the juggling and manipulation of your bar tools that includes, shaker tins, glassware, garnish, napkins, in some rather neat, tricky and dazzling ways.
Flair bartending is not all about the juggling of the bottles, some ice trick which is the definition of flair bartending in the strictest sense, but generally, it is just anything that can create an extra excitement and dazzle to your clientele’s drinking experience. You can do a simple juggling trick or a rather funny story or joke. If possible to use both, the use them.
You know you have a drinking problem when the bartender knows your name — and you’ve never been to that bar before
