And then we became the first state to enact statewide prohibition 30 years later. Dirigo again...

Week 3:

Took quiz on first 20 drinks. Went over same. Instructor tried again to sell us the TIPS class (Training on Intervention Procedures for Servers of alcohol) which is another $40 on top of this lousy class and five hours of my life. We spent the rest of the class writing as he dicated twenty more drink recipes to us. After last night I felt guilty just being there; like it was pickpocketing class or something. We still have not touched any bar equipment.

Interesting things I learned:
1. alcohol goes into the shaker before the juice or mixers
2. it is legal in the state of Connecticut to buy your minor child an alcoholic beverage in a restaurant, bar or club
3. Bacardi, Captain Morgan and Malibu are your primary rums (sob...sob...)
4. Your primary whiskeys are VO, CC and 7&7 (sic)
5. a rum and Coke is also called a "Cuba Libra" (sic)
6. all sours are served either in a highball or cocktail glass
7. an Old Fashioned is served in a rocks glass
8. Need to find out what drinks are served in Old Fashioned and Sour glasses...
9. sour mix can and apparently is used to replace lemon and lime juice AND simple syrup
10. I really, really don't want to go anymore.

Next twenty drinks: Gimlet, Martini, Gibson, Cosmopolitan, Tom Collins, Sloe Gin Fizz, Bacardi Cocktail, Daiquiri, Frozen Daiquiri, Whiskey Sour, Irish Coffee, Manhattan, Highball, Presbyterian, Old Fashioned, Rob Roy, Rusty Nail, Amaretto Sour, Toasted Almond, (Kahlua) Sombrero

So that's why my drinks always taste bad! It's cause I don't always add the alcohol first! Damn it! Wait, my drinks don't taste bad.....
Are you sure that guys telling the truth, Pappy?

I think we have hit on the reason that most drinks that you get in most bars these days pretty much SUCK!

TIPS class, what will they think of next? Maybe I could be the teacher for the SAP class. (Sexual Abstanance for Prostitutes)
If you are a bartender you serve me drinks if I am of legal drinking age. If I have "too many" I walk home or call a cab. No intervention is required.

I have an SAP button on my TV. I always wondered what that did.

What's funny is that the list of drinks he' sgiving you are never used. Have you ever in your life heard someone order a Rob Roy or a Old Fashioned? That is part of the list of long lost drinks like the Ward Eight, etc. He might as well be teaching you the names of Presidents... It would be more effective to teach a list of the most suggestive and filthy shooter drink names. You know, the "Screaming Orgasm" and the "Rock Hard Erection" and the "Incredible Head." If those aren't actual shooter names, they will be... And they are going to be ordered 100 times more often, not 10,000 times more often than the Rob Roy.

Honestly now Pappy, are you really allowing this "teacher" to perpetuate some flat out errors?

Improper pronunciations,
grenadine is cherry-flavored syrup,
Cuba Libra,
etc. etc.

I hope you are standing up and actually trying to set things straight.

Otherwise you are just wasting your time.

If I start speaking up, I'm liable to foul up the experiment. I'm just there as an observer. If you really wanna know why things are as bad as they are, I need to just shut up and be the man Who Wasn't There. A good journalist doesn't make himself part of the story. I'm even going to take this TIPS class. If I do decide to speak my mind, I'll have more to say about his teaching style than his content anyway.--Who spends two hours dictating recipes that are in books?

See--you got me going...

Screw journalism! You have an opportunity to effect a change (albeit a small one) and you are squandering it!

Or after the course has run, find "someone" to "convince" this guy to find a different occupation (that involves no alcohol whatsoever).
Better yet, on the last day, take him out with a Zima (by making him drink it) and show the kids the RIGHT way to do things.
This person is sounding like a film school teacher I had who droned non-committedly along about really obvious facets of the field and was about ten years behind on what was going on in the industry...
