’30 Drinks in 30 Minutes’ | Bar Rescue S6 Highlight
November 27, 2019
– Hey guys, how are we doing? Phil:
This is a difficult rescue because I haven’t even seen
the bartenders perform yet, so we can’t get too crazy
with the cocktails tonight. So part of today is not only
are we gonna be training
on new drinks, but I need to look and see
where you guys really live as far as your
bartending skills. – What are people always
drinking around here?
– Both: Margaritas. What we’re gonna do is
I’m gonna bring you back here. I just want you guys
to make the margarita that you guys
are used to making. I wanna see how fast
you guys make it. I wanna see what
it tastes like, all right? Your time is gonna start
in three, two, one. Come on. I feel weird. I do well under pressure. I mean, that’s my specialty
is high volume bartending. But it’s opening
six beer bottles at a time or pouring a whiskey coke. I mean, that’s
where my expertise lies. Ta-da. You guys all make margaritas
the same way? – You want me to tell you
what I put in it?
– Yeah. Sarah, Kym, I want you guys
to both come up here together. Three, two, one, go. Go, go, go, come on.
It’s a busy night. The band’s playing,
it’s cracking. Let’s go.
Pour those drinks. You guys have plenty
of bottles in there. Let’s go.
One, two, three, four– Okay, we got 3/4 ounce
of tequila in there. That’s gonna be
a tasty margarita. Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go. Shake, shake, shake,
like you mean it. I don’t even wanna
drink that one. We got three margaritas.
Three totally different drinks. We need to make sure
that we are making
everything consistent. – We need to fix a lot of stuff.
– Yes, sir. You guys wanna see what drinks
you’re gonna be doing today? – You know we do.
– Okay. We’re gonna do a perfect
margarita for you guys, and we’re gonna change
the look of it and change the flavor
components of it just a little bit
to make it your own. We’re gonna use
the volcanic black lava salt. Half ounce of agave syrup
and one ounce of lime juice. And I’m gonna do a half ounce
of the blue curaçao and one and a half ounce
of tequila. And last but not least,
two dashes of orange bitters. Let’s do it. – That beautiful color
– That is awesome. – Looks cool.
– Nice little black rim. There you have it, guys. This is gonna be the margarita that Fort Worth Stockyards
are talking about. – Boom!
– It’s so good! – It looks good.
– It is very, very good. Our focus needs to be to get
these drinks out as quick
as we possibly can, so it is all about that speed. – All right, let’s do it.
– All right. – What’s happening, man?
How you doing?
– Holy cow. I’m at home chilling last night.
I get a call from Jon. Jon said,
“I need you out here, man.
I got this bar– No kitchen, no menu.
It’s gonna be a huge task.” We came in last night,
put a little kitchen in. – Wow. Yeah.
– Is it pretty cool? Jeremy: This room was more
of a storage junk pile. So now we’ve got
a great kitchen. I’m extremely excited. You gotta have
good food at a bar. And y’all got
a lot of competition
around here, okay? This is a nice area.
Lot of barbecue in this area. So we gotta come up
with something good so they can compete with
the barbecue around this place. So what we’re gonna do first is some mac and cheese
pulled pork, okay? And it’s real quick.
You can get it out quick. Throw a little mac on there. Throw some pulled pork on there. – A little barbecue sauce.
– Mm-hmm. Pinch of scallions. – That is delicious.
– Like we say in the South, – that make me
wanna slap your mama.
– Don’t slap my mama, though. I ain’t slapping
( bleep ) my mama neither. – Y’all ready
to do this tonight?
– Let’s do it. Cool. Let’s do it. Jon:
So what I wanna do tonight is run our stress test
for 30 minutes. So here’s
what we’re gonna do. We’re going to test how
the food is received tonight, and I’m gonna put these
straws next to each
of your work stations. Every time you make a drink, yll just take one of these
straws and drop it in the jar. I want each
of our bartenders to sell 30 drinks
in 30 minutes. – Fair? Reasonable number?
– Fair. – Yes, sir.
– We have to maximize
our potential. If we can’t get 90 drinks out
in that amount of time, the stress test will
be a failure. – You guys ready to do this?
– Ready. – Yes, sir.
– Okay, let’s get together.
We open in about 15 minutes. For tonight, I need to see Keith
and Fred step up as owners. I expect them to get
their business together and be organized
for the stress test. I also wanna see Luke
contribute in some fashion to prove that he’s a positive,
equal partner. Hello.
How are y’all doing? – This is what we are
offering this evening.
– Okay. Two market batch and one
of the tequila drinks. One, two, three, four. Jon: Guys,
you make ’em one at a time,
we’ll never get there. You make ’em four,
five at a time–
piece of cake, right? – Let’s go, let’s go.
– Let’s go, ladies. – Unh-uh.
– No? That’s all blue curaçao.
Nobody wants that. Let’s make it right,
ladies, come on. – How many drinks, Kym?
– Three. – Man: I’m hungry!
– Who wants barbecue?
Raise your hand. ( cheering ) Get the orders, okay?
Let’s go! – What you need?
– Two mac and cheese. – Two mac and cheese.
– What you got, Luke? – What you got?
– I got one mac and cheese. Three mac and cheese,
two taco. Two mac and cheese.
Two mac and cheese. I need at least ten
mac and cheeses, brother. Jon: All right,
we got food coming out! Six-seven, six-eight. – Y’all have 67?
– No. Dang it. ( sighs ) This is ridiculous. Goes this way,
then he goes that way. Then he goes this way,
then he goes that way. You know why he doesn’t
know which way to go?
’Cause he’s lost! – Jeremy, do you know
where that goes?
– I have no idea. – 67.
– Well, give it to somebody
so it doesn’t go cold. Do you have a card or
you wanna pay cash? Okay. Thank you very much.
We appreciate it. All right,
what do we got here? All right, we got 12 over here.
What do we got, Phil? 11, 12, 13! – What do we got in the middle?
– Two, four, five, six. – ( mimics buzzer )
– Come on, Cece! Let’s go! At least you’re making
the drinks right. Clearly our weak link
is in the middle, right? Phil: Oh, yes. She’s at 15.
She’s halfway there. She’s sloppy, too.
They’re just slopping
the drinks together. – You have to make them right.
– And are Keith or Fred
watching the drinks? – They don’t even know.
– Thank you for coming out.
Hi, baby. How are you? Keith, what can you do?
Fred, let’s see what you got! – Jump down and help Kym.
Jump down and help Kym.
– All right, let’s go. Hey, start separating cups.
They’re sticking. We’re done to ten minutes.
Ten minutes they have, and they’ve got about 20 drinks
to make in ten minutes. – We’re running out of time.
– One, two, three, four. – What is this?
– Vodkas. Put it away.
Five minutes left! – Five minutes.
– Five minutes. Come on! Jon: You’re at 27.
You’re gonna make your 30. Let’s go.
Get these last three out. – ( cheering )
– I got 24. Get those last six.
Two minutes! There you go.
Pour it. 30 seconds! – Come on!
– Come on! Five, four, three, two, one! ( bleep )
