Bartenders who entertain clients or guests with sophisticated bartool manipulations, such as cocktail shakers or liquor bottles, are known for their flair bartending skills. This is a common action in bars that serve cocktails, so juggling skills may be required.
Flavor bartending is also known as extreme bartending. The term flair was popularized in the mid-1990s. Flair can be used to refer to entertaining guests while mixing drinks. It can also be used verbally to describe any type of bartender trickery. Close-up magic tricks include flipping, juggling, manipulating flaming liquors and even performing tricks like juggling or flipping. Flavor bartending acts add artistic elements to enhance the guest experience. It is possible to keep the spirit of mixology, drinks-oriented bartending and service-oriented bartending if you use flair correctly. Flairtending tends to be more popular because it focuses more on serving drinks and providing visual entertainment for customers.
The Art of Trickery and Visuals
Bars are a unique place where acrobatic showmanship is combined with the ability to make alcoholic beverages. They have evolved into shrines to serious drink-making. Stagecraft is not acceptable in the age of shrewd bartenders. Mixology is all about ingredients, traditional recipes, and tools. Extraneous moves that please the crowd, but have no impact on the flavor of the cocktail, are not allowed.
One of the earliest records of flair bottles bartenders is Jerry “The Professor” Thomas, who was known for his fiery stream of boiling water and flaming whisky. He also mixed a Blue Blazer original in the 19th century. Flair Bartending was not mentioned in the early records. It is believed to have originated from the T.G.I Fridays Company. This includes their establishment in Los Angeles, California with John Bandy.
According to the legend, John Bandy became bored with his routine in the 1980s. He was getting tired of meeting customers every day and so he decided to change things up. He experimented with many bar tools and learned how to fly a cocktail tin behind the head.
