    Joshua has bartended in several bars including The Pub in Brooklyn and Fatso's Lawrence, Kansas. Mixing drinks has been a passion for Josh since childhood when he used to mix his milk and chocolate syrup flair style on the playground. He then went through the school of hard knocks at The Pub in NYC under a career bartender whom had been bartending since the age of 13 in Ireland. He then spent two years at Fatso's Public House and Stage in Lawrence, KS under the supervision of bartending master Gavin Smith. He now resides in the DC metro area and bartends for private parties.

    Hi! I am Josh Dubois. I have been a professional bartender for five years. I apprenticed under a career bartender in New York City and I have worked in all sorts of bars from upscale bars to really high volume college bars. Today, what we are going to do is we are going to show you everything you need to know for your home bar. We are going to show you what liquors you are going to need to make any drink possible. We are going to show you what non-alcoholic perishable items you are going to need to set up your own bar.

    We are going to show you all the tools and more importantly how to use those tools in your home and what tools to kind of avoid when you are setting up your bar.

    We are also going to show you how to properly pour a beer and we re going to show you how to properly pour the liquor and we re going to show you also how to cut come fruit your cocktails at home.

    So, one thing to always remember is when working with alcohol, you always want to be responsible, whenever you are bartending you should never be drinking and we are back here working with knives and such. So, you want to always be careful when you are making the drinks.

    The next thing that I will go ahead and say, is to always remember never drink and drive, always have a sober driver and always be a responsible drinker. So, let's get started with what liquors you are going to need to set up your own home bar.
