The cocktail culture is steadily picking up the pace in India and has already established its grounds in some cities. Be it the flaring performances by bar chefs who passionately make your drink or the delicious concoctions of cocktails you get to enjoy in the high-end bar, we are always ready for something exciting in the F&B industry.

Difference between mixology and bar-tending

But do you know that the simple art of mixing two or more drinks has an elaborate science behind it? Does the term bartending and mixology mean the same thing to you? If yes, you are in for a big surprise.

By now, you are probably familiar with the term bartender. If you are not, a bartender, in simple terms, is a person who takes care of prepares your favorite beverage behind the bar. He or she could simply be a well-dressed person mixing a few spirits to give you a drink that pampers your taste buds.

Difference between mixology and bar-tending

A mixologist, on the other hand, is a professional who has an in-depth knowledge of the art and craft of mixing drinks. A mixologist is concerned with the precise amount of each drink that goes into developing a cocktail. To a normal person, a cocktail may just be placing several drinks together in a shaker, but to a mixologist, the volume of each and every spirit that goes into developing a mix is the most important thing. Even a drop can change the taste of the beverage you hold in your hand and mixology deals with the science behind that logic.
