We took a bartending class downtown Kansas City MO at the Professional Bartending Schools of America. We are holding our Mojitos. A mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, sparkling water and mint.

The bar station had three compartment sinks, stainless steel ice bins, Wunderbar soda gun and liquor speed racks. We had time behind the bar to practice pouring shots without using a shot glass.

Holan and Kristie are tasting the drinks from the cascading bar trick Kristie tried to do. She wasn’t given very clear instructions by Beth, our instructor, so it didn’t work out too well.

This shot is the American Flag until you light it on fire then it becomes a Patriot Missile – because we don’t burn the American Flag!

Kristie using a lighter and the end of a lemon to extract the lemon oil to infuse water. This can also be used on oranges also. It was amazing how this worked.
