What is Flair?
Flair bartenders at work
Flair, or extreme bartending, is a choreographed entertainment performance put on by bartenders involving cocktail shakers and bottles among other tools.
The act involves the mixing of drinks using visually exciting moves, similar to juggling. For example, rather than simply shaking a cocktail shaker to mix a drink, the shaker will be thrown in the air along with other items, such as bottles, to add to the effect. The marks of a good flair bartender are a good combination of cocktail mixing knowledge, and an athletic, visually stunning performance.
Flair is used in cocktail bars to dazzle customers, and is employed at events as an exciting promotional aid. Flair bartending is also performed in a competitive field, known as Exhibition Flair. In Exhibition Flair, the emphasis is less on the serving of drinks, but more on the visual flair and exciting moves performed.
