3) I enjoy mixing drinks for myself, should I start bartending as a career? Bartending is often a difficult lifestyle to maintain.

4) Where can I find more information about X Alcohol? Try one of the subreddits listed below, or the website for that brand.
5) How much should I tip? That will always depend on the country you're in, the type of establishment, the time of day and the type of drink ordered. Ordering a Cosmo at a busy cocktail lounge on a friday night in New York, one would expect to tip more than ordering a bottle of beer at a pub in Ireland. See what other people are tipping and match that to be safe. Tips are always appreciated, and it is generally up to the patron to decide what to tip. 20% or $1/drink in North America is quite common (often because of our lower priced drinks and staff that is paid a lower amount) and a good guideline to follow overall.
