How to Do a 2 Tin Split into a Stall Flair Bartending Move

Learn how to do the two tin split into a stall flair bartending move from mixologist Chris Cardone in this Howcast video.

Hi, I’m Chris Cardone from the Flair Bartenders’ Association, and I’m going to teach you how to do a two tin split into a stall.

So what we’re going to do is we’re going to look at the moves separate first. A stall is just basically landing any object on any body part. In this case, we’ll say a tin on a hand. And you have to get comfortable holding a tin on the back of your hand or on your forearm or anywhere else you want to stall it, but the concept is just getting comfortable holding that there. That’s a stall. Now a two tin split is where you have two tins, you place your hand inside one, and then you use your thumb to separate the two tins. What you’re going to do then is you’re going to bring it around your body and when you get to here, you’re going to push your tin out and let the force of gravity release the tins. And that’s called a two tin split. It looks like this.

So what we’re going to do is put two moves together and make it a two tin split into a stall. So we’re going to have our tins come around and we’re going to stall the tin onto our hand, releasing the other one and just catching the one. Again, to kind of slow it down, it looks like this. Release point, opens up, and we stall it on our hand. Quickly, it looks like this. And that’s a two tin split into a stall.
