"Hi Guys. I started my first shift and ended up being the bartender for all of the servers. Everything you taught me in the course played out really well. They were really impressed with how fast I was able to deal with things as well as all of the rules and methods you had taught me. I was asked to suggest and prepare a shooter for a server for a customer. So I recommended the "Blue Bomber" and prepared three of them. They were blown away by the presentation and the taste ...thanks also for that!! I am forever grateful!"
