Pieces of Flair

I hate when people say, “Hey, you’re like Tom Cruise!” I’m nothing like Tom Cruise. That movie has probably done more damage for flair bartenders than anything else. People get this misconception that we’re spilling a lot, because he spills a lot. And the flair he does is actually horrible.
But my favorite part was this:
Until you master the bartending part, until you practice so much that your fingers have bled, I don’t want you to even attempt flair.
And until your fingers have stopped bleeding, I don’t want you to mix me a drink.
