How to Do the Swipe through Flair Bartending Move

Learn how to do the flair bartending move called the swipe through from mixologist Chris Cardone in this Howcast video.

Hi. I’m Chris Cardone from the Flare Bartenders’ Association and I’m going to teach you how to do a two bottle column with a swipe through.

And the concept of this move is to simply do a column with one hand. A column is just juggling with two bottles with one hand as the pattern goes up and comes back in. Now the second hand is going to take a bottle and swipe through the bottles as they are going up and down. So as the first one comes up you are going to go in and then the second bottle comes through that.

Its kinda hard to explain so I should probably just show you. So you’re gonna take your two bottles, you’re gonna throw them in the air in a column and then you’re gonna come through with your other bottle. Just like that.

And that is how you do a two bottle column with a swipe through.
