BAR® curriculum is organized around the following guiding principles:

  1. The sections are organized into modules so that students understand precisely the purpose of each talk, presentation
  2. and exercise.
  3. All spirits, cocktails and mixological principles will be presented in historical and cultural context-we will teach not just “what” and “how,” but “why.”
  4. Frequent short tests – these tests are designed to teach more than they are intended to test.
  5. Practical applications – each module includes a blind tasting of spirits and, starting with the third lesson, the preparation of cocktails and their ingredients.
