The learning environment is friendly, inviting, and amusing not like the other product which I felt was nonsensical and a little childish. The DVD provides information that can be used right away. The set up, a real bar, shows and explains things that ,even after working in a bar, were still unclear.It provided information on basic drink recipes, the appropriate way to 'build' and serve a drink as well as other bar vernacular that was foreign to me. Even if you already are a drinker this product will only aid in you becoming a better imbiber.
Defintely a winner for me! I still believe in the value of the classroom teaching but what better way to supplement what you learn or get it together prior to the class meetings.
Great introductory video.
Easy to follow. Very basic information about technique and glassware.
Good number of recipes.
A little bit staged, but it does allow the lesson to be presented.
I'd recommend it.
Wish there was a volume two to build upon this video.
