So a choice between a 20 year old male (don't know how age or sex makes a difference) who has worked at the restaurant 3 months, been with the restaurant a while(3 months?) and is familiar with making cocktails and a 40 year old who has 20 odd years of bartending experience (could have no more than 19 to serve alcohol legally) and yet is not familiar with how to make each cocktail. I would have serious doubts about someone who has spent 20 years bartending and can't make the cocktails someone who has been doing it 3 months can, at least for a bartending job. Even if they could make the same number of cocktails or even 10, 20, 30 percent more. After 20 years what cocktail shouldn't they be able to make? What are they bringing to the job besides the questionable 20 years experience?

i like the idea of promoting the 20 year old. my only concern would be if your restaurant has a busy happy hour in the bar area would he be able to handle it. if you offer him the chance suggest he go to bartending school to improve his skills i suppose it is possible the 40 year old might learn local procedures fairly quickly, but like i said i like promoting from within the company
