Hi, I'm Chris Cardone. I work at the Beatrice Inn in New York City. And I'm going to teach you how to pour with flair.

This is a very, very, very easy trick to do. It's something that pretty much anybody on the planet can learn to do really quickly. We'll start with the practice bottle and then we'll show you how to do it live with liquid. But it's really, really simple as soon as you learn how to hold everything.

So you're going to start holding your bottle in what's called a reverse grip. So you have your bartender grip, and then you have a reverse grip. You're also going to hold your tin in the same way. Two reverse grips to start. What you're going to do is you're going to bring the bottle underneath your arm and bring it up to a pour. At some point when you feel like you're getting close to being done, you're going to spin the two underneath your arm, back around, and then you're going to continue to spin the tin a little bit more, and then you're going to bring your bottle down and that's it.

So we'll do it one more time slow. Take our bottle and our tin, both in a reverse grip. Bring it underneath our arm. We start to pour. We spin the tin and the bottle. You continue to spin the tin a little bit more, and then you bring your bottle down, and then you would pour that into your drink. And you're done.

So, to see it live with a bottle. Reverse grip. Reverse grip. You bring it underneath. You start to pour. You spin out. You keep spinning. You're done. And then you would pour that into your drink. And that is how to pour with some serious flair.
