Basic Liquor Groups


As a bartender, you need to know the common liquors used in making cocktails and drinks as well as their popular serving and mixing combinations.  Once you have these down, you will be able to create a wide variety of drinks for your customers.  We have grouped the liquors into seven primary groups.  However, in most cases you will find that most popular drinks are going to use vodka, rum, gin and whiskey.


In this lesson, you will learn:


  • Flavor profiles for each liquor group
  • Recap how each liquor is made
  • Popular brands for each liquor group
  • Common drinks made with each of the basic liquors
