Play the PBSA Bartender Challenge game

The Bartender Challenge is a fun and great way to learn cocktail recipes online. This interactive electronic flash card program was created by Professional Bartending Schools of America as a study tool for all of its bartending students across the country. The Bartender Challenge program is eLearning at its best.

We recommend this state-of-the-art online elearning tool for all of our students, and has been converted into a fully functional software program and released to the public in 2011.

Our virtual cocktail recipe flashcards work in three modes to make learning cocktail recipes fast, easy and fun.
