How Is Mixology Different from Bartending?

Last updated 5 years ago

If you have been reading the latest culinary magazines and watching the latest TV shows on food and drink, then undoubtedly you have heard the term “mixologist.” Because mixology and bartending often overlap, many people are unsure of the distinction between the two professions.

A mixologist, as you will learn when you watch this video, dedicates him or herself to the invention of new cocktails featuring unusual flavor combinations and ingredients such as fresh herbs and artisanal spirits. A professional bartender can do this too, but he or she must also be able to rapidly craft dozens of classic cocktails as well as cleanly pour beer and wine for dozens of customers in a short amount of time.
