For some of the alcohol enthusiasts, this would be the first experience as a barman. It can prove a slightly daunting since you’ve never tried this craft before. But don’t worry. It’s all about Mixology – which is, basically the art and science of mixing both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to create cocktails. And, one dash typically means 1/8 tablespoon or 4-5 drops.

Am sharing a video for you to watch the mixology technique as you expand your cocktail knowledge.
