I don`t get it... I`ve worked at a bunch of bars and was an extra on the set of roostertails, but I seem to have somehow become jaded to the allure of skillfully poured liquids of varied colors being manipulated by a mere mortal, if a dexterous one.

I guess I`m just not impressed by something that is legitimately impressive because apathy is cool, and I so deeply crave being cool that I make useless comments on the internet in the hopes that someone will read them and think "That guy must be so cool, if cool things aren`t even cool to him anymore". Tell me oh great bartending officianado, how many times would you have to see the most amazing thing in the world, before you became just as bored by it as you are by this trick?

I don`t get it... every bar I`ve ever worked in had more than one bartender on staff who was capable of this particular trick... in fact, it requires the least actual skill of any "flair" bartending move.

I guess I`m just not impressed by something I used to see 100 times every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

@5ofclubs "they`re already in glasses, what is the point of all this?"

You mix the individual drinks with ice then the liquid is strained off using the base of the next glass to hold the ice in the original glass but giving enough room for the chilled fluids to drain off.

this is maybe impressive for a teenage girl. Everyone else in the bar is thinking "twat".

Just pour the damn drink.

Look at the bottom of the glasses, between the two red ones, you can see a glimpse of a second stack

I would think the line of glasses would only be able to pour into one side of shots or the other, requiring some finagling. A talent not uncommon among performing bartenders.
Yet this picture seems to show a shot glass in the front row and back row simultaneously getting hit. More streams than there are glasses in his hands, of which I count 6 that contain liquids.
Perhaps taking advantage of the many ridges in the faceted glass body to split some streams.

Otherwise, BS

He mixed them in pint glasses and served them in half pints.

Just because he`s a showman about it, and brings more people to the bar, he should be fired?

Not that hard...take 7 glasses, fill 6 of them up with what looks like about 4 oz of the specified colored drink, stack, hold together tightly, aim and pour.
