Should have videos of people making cocktails, using the equipment - not really worth the money I’d say

Audio often not working. It makes little sense to describe an action (eg. a method of cocktail making) without any kind of visual information, like at least pictures, to show the action itself.

Not bad, is what it says it is as being beginner course, possibly could do with step by step instructions or a more visual guide to some of the cocktails, other than that reasonably good.

Very good introduction of cocktails. However, it would be helpful to watch short videos on some of the techniques such as layering and shaking. Also, some videos on how to make some of the classic cocktails would be helpful.
