      New Mexico Bartending Certification

      Age Regulations of New Mexico

      In New Mexico, individuals must be at least 21 years old to sell or serve alcohol in package stores, bars, or lounges. However, those aged 18 can work in a restaurant environment, excluding roles as bartenders or cocktail servers. A restaurant, in this context, is an establishment primarily focused on selling food rather than alcohol consumption.

      Learn The Most Popular Cocktails In New Mexico

      In New Mexico, our cocktail scene is influenced by the rich cultural tapestry of the region, blending traditional flavors with a modern twist.

      The Santa Fe Sunrise is a popular choice, featuring local blue corn whiskey, freshly squeezed lime juice, and a splash of house-made chili-infused syrup, embodying the state's love for bold and spicy flavors. It is taught in our Santa Fe School Another favorite at our school is the Rio Grande Mule, incorporating New Mexico vodka, ginger beer, and a dash of piñon syrup, offering a taste of the state's distinctive piñon pine nuts.

      Garnishes like a chili-salt rim or a slice of grilled lime enhance the visual and sensory experience, and the use of traditional Southwest-inspired glassware adds an authentic touch. Our Schools in Santa Fe and Albuquerque contribute to the state's cocktail diversity, with bars incorporating regional elements into their drinks.
