What is a bartender?
A bartender (also known as a barkeep, barman, barmaid, bar chef, tapster, mixologist, alcohol server, cocktologist, flairman or an alcohol chef) is a person who formulates and serves alcoholic or soft drink beverages behind the bar.
A bartender’s job decription also usually includes of takinc care of and maintaing the supplies and inventory for the bar. Some classic cocktails a bartender should be able to do are: Cosmopolitan, Manhattan, Old Fashioned, and Mojito.
Another thing a bartender is responsible for is confirming that customers meet the legal drinking age requirements before serving them alcoholic beverages.
In certain countries, such as Canada, the United Kingdom, and Sweden, bartenders are legally required to refuse more alcohol to drunk customers.
Historically, bartending was a profession with a low reputation. It was perceived through the lens of ethical issues and various legal constraints as well as biases that were strongly connected with serving alcolol.
Bartending became a serious and mainstream profession at the end of the 19th century, due to the contribution of “Professor” Jerry Thomas.
He was the one who managed to establish the image of the bartender as a creative professional. Harry Johnson wrote a bartending manual and established the first bar management consulting agency.
At the turn of the 20th century, slightly less than half the bartenders in London were women, such as Ada Coleman.
“Barmaids”, as they were called, were usually the daughters of tradesmen or mechanics or, occasionally, young women from the “better-born” classes who had been “thrown upon their own resources” and needed an income.
The bartending profession was generally a second occupation, used as transitional work for students to gain customer experience or to save money for university fees.
However, this view of bartending as a career is changing around the world and bartending has become a profession by choice rather than a necessity. It includes specialized education — European Bartender School operates in 25 countries.

Tips on how to take care of your jewelry
All of the jewelry is treated with an anti-tarnish coating to help protect against tarnishing, yet it is still important for you to follow my care instructions.
Your jewellery can tarnish over time when exposed to the open air but you can help maintain your jewellery by following these useful tips:
I recommend that customers remove jewellery before going to bed or participating in physical activity. Exposure to certain harsh chemicals or environments will result in compromising the integrity of your jewellery.
This includes, but is not limited to the following: perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, salt water, and silver polish.
Specifically, gold-plated jewelry has a thin layer of gold over sterling silver, so when that layer wears down, the base metal is revealed. Below you can find a few suggestions to extend the life of your gold plating.
1)Keep gold-plated jewelry away from hard surfaces. Bumps and scratches will cause the gold layer to wear away faster.
2)Wash your hands before putting on or taking off plated jewelry.
3)Put on gold plated earrings after you’ve applied your perfume.
4)Put on your plated jewelry after you have applied lotion or put on makeup.
5)Don’t swim wearing your plated jewelry.
6)Don’t wear your plated jewelry when you’ll be sweating profusely. Covered later.
How to store your jewelry
Jewellery should be stored away from direct sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewellery box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom or any other humid places.
