Hottest Mixes Bartenders Should Know

Hottest Mixes

We have put together a list of the hottest mixes. These Cocktails have made a major splash within the bartending scene. These hottest mixes are too hot to ignore and all professional bartenders should at the very least be familiar with them. Long Beach Bartending School graduates like to make these drinks and our patrons love to take!

Most of these recipes are fairly simple to anyone who has had proper bar training. We have included a heart rating from 1-5 hearts. The hearts represent the probability of your average Bartender knowing the recipe. One heart,, is very unlikely, and five hearts, ♥♥♥♥♥ being very likely.
