We’re going to focus on the widely used and accepted uniforms you’ll see at most bartending gigs or events. The second thing you’ll need besides a uniform is the bar kit. These are a necessity for bartending.

Garnishes serve two purposes. One purpose is to decorate cocktails. Cocktails are not cocktails without garnishes. The garnishes provide an allure for the customer. The drinks look more pleasing to the eye with them. The other purpose is to actually alter the taste of the drink. Some drinks need a garnish to be made properly.
