Hi- I am a new bartender and I know a lot of drinks, but I always find myself studying and consulting my books. It seems like most of the drinks I know are fairly uncommon and I rarely serve them. How can I figure out what drinks take priority over others and are more common to serve?

This will really have to do with the type of place you work in and your location. Do a little "On The Job Training" and pay attention to what folks are ordering from other tenders most commonly and learn these drinks. Talk to the other tenders and see what they suggest you commit to memory.
I live in Colorado in a Ski town and will probably not be able to help you with the list of drinks I serve most comonly, as it is a totaly diffrent climate and atmosphere to what Tampa is.
Hit other bars in the area and see what the other tenders are serving and talk to the other tenders in your bar is my best suggestion.
If you are relatively new to bartending, then have no fear, you will gradualy learn these dink and be able to make them in your sleep if you keep working on it!!
Good luck _________________ The odds are good but the goods are odd.
