Bar Trick 4 – Olives on a Stick

Ask Me How I Am?… Olive!
Dirty Martini Anyone? This is a little demonstration by Blake, catching olives on a toothpick, held between his teeth. Nice little trick!
Know when to say fun!
I first saw this trick on a VCR video called ‘Olympic Bartending, by professional bartenders, Don Foley & JB Bandy. These guys were very early in my career as a bartending ‘lifer’, a true inspiration.

Bar Trick 2 – Champagne Chair

Champagne Chair

This is a great bartender’s trick! Below is a video on how to make this neat little souvenir. I’ve been delighting people with this for many, many tears. When I give it to a pretty lady I always say…”It’s quite self serving, because I want to entice you to come back for the rest of the set.”

People come up to me and say “I’ve had that thing on my window sill for ten years.” This warms my heart, and theirs!
