HAVE A DRINK!!
A true bartender can read your guests and their tastes and recommend drinks that suits all aspects of what that person is looking for.
Some things to consider asking a potential bartender are:
- Are you state licensed?
- How many years experience and where was that experience?
- See if they can tell you how to make a few of your favorite drinks by heart.
- Is the bartender willing to provide signature cocktails?
- Are there backup bartenders in the event that someone is ill?
- What policies do they have in regards to deposits, cancellations, etc.?
