Episode Description

Flair Bartending

Popularized in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail, flair bartending is the practice of entertaining an audience with the throwing/juggling of bar tools (eg; shaker tins) and liquor bottles in tricky, dazzling ways. Once Bob is trained in this form of showmanship, he will enter an International Flair Competition in the 'mecca of flair bartending', Las Vegas. It is a dangerous task, and the action requires skill due to the dangers of possible glass breakage and even burning. Bob’s challenge is to woo the judges with the technique, flow and creative flair of his routine while making actual drinks, and all in three minutes! His reward? To learn from the world’s best flair bartenders, and of course, sampling all the drinks!
