The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode #139
Ever considered bartending for private events? It’s a “side gig” for bartenders, and can be very lucrative! This week we’re lucky enough to have mobile bartending pro, Ozeal Debastos, on the podcast to learn how he got started and some tips for making your mobile bartending business a huge success.
In today’s Episode, it’s all about Mobile Bartending!
If you’ve ever considered picking up private event or mobile bartending as a side gig, this is the podcast for you. A potentially incredibly lucrative option for bartenders, it can also be tricky – you need to navigate a lot more things than you ever probably dealt with behind the bar. For example:
- How do you find customers?
- How much should you charge?
- How do you know what ingredients to bring, and how much?
- What are the legal / licensing requirements?
- What equipment do you need / should you bring?
It can be overwhelming! But listen in to this week’s episode with Mobile Bartending pro, Ozeal DeBastos and you’ll hear his answers and suggestions for all of the above.
