Pour drinks as soon as you make them or they will wilt. Leftovers should be discarded or they will be too diluted by the time you get to seconds.

When making a batch of drinks at once, set up the glasses in a row. Pour until each glass is half full, then backtrack until the shaker is empty. That way everyone gets the same amount, thoroughly mixed.

With beer, you must come to a compromise. While beer that is poured straight into the center of the bottom of the glass has more flavor, it is much more foamy than beer poured into a glass that is allowed to roll down the inside wall. It depends mostly on the drinker and the bartender, and most often the difference is barely noticable.
