Moe Harris: Hi! Guys. My name is Moe Harris and Im here at the Professional Bartending School in Arlington, Virginia. And Im about to show you the third in the sequence of tricks, thats going to wind up with an amazing pour. Weve already showed the first two parts. The third part is going to look like this. What Im going to do is Ive got a bottle and tin right here. All Im going to do is lift it up and catch it behind my back, in my left hand. Now, the difficult thing is Ive got a tin in this hand so as soon as I let go with this Im going to want to grab that, its almost like this. See that again from behind. Ill show you want I did. Im just going to lift this up, grab this as soon as I let go with this Im going grab this with my right hand and catch this with my left hand. Finally, what Im going to do, is Im going to take this tin and this is just a little bit of target practice. Gorgeous. Thats going to allow you take this thing upside down into a pour, into your glass. Lets put all those all those three sequences together. Shall we? We shall.
First sequence, split-throw-catch; second sequence, we pull-throw-throw-catch; third sequence, behind the back, little spin, target practice into a pour, its just that simple.
