Bartenders take orders from waiters for customers seated in the restaurant or lounge; they also take orders from customers seated at the bar. They mix drinks by combining exactly the right proportion of liquor, wines, mixers, and other ingredients. In order to work efficiently, bartenders must know dozens of drink recipes off the top of their heads. They should also be able to measure accurately by sight in order to prepare drinks quickly, even during the busiest periods. They may be asked to mix drinks to suit a customer's taste, and they also serve beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages.
