A talented bartender knows a lot about how to create unique and exciting flavors, while simultaneously playing the role of listener, therapist, and life coach to customers. Understanding what it takes to plan and create an amazingly tempting cocktail menu, and to serve that menu with class and flair requires a lot of talent and social skills.
