The Sims 4 Master Mixologist Aspiration
Milestones and The Potion Master Reward Trait
by Tom "Metro" Schlueter
Practice Bar Tricks is definitely the way to go to skill up once you hit level 6 in Mixology.
Overview and Set Up
Just like the other Food category Aspiration, Master Chef, with Master Mixologist you want to be Inspired so choose
the Creative trait. Outgoing would be good for the friendship requirement later on in the career - that is if you
decide to stay in the career. Perfectionist is another smart trait to go with because everything your Mixologist will
make will probably be of excellent quality, especially when you factor in the Essence of Flavor bonus trait as part
of the Aspiration.
Milestone I - Bar Tenderfoot
- Mix 20 Drinks (75 Satisfaction)
- Own a Bar and 2 Barstools (50 Satisfaction)
Jump into the career right away because when you factor in days off it's going to be awhile before your Sim gets to
the 6th level in order to choose the Mixology branch (Milestone 3).
Your funds will be tapped as you must pay for those 20 drinks in the first Milestone. And the skilling is slow
compared to long painting, writing, or musical instrument sessions where the skilling is steady. With Mixology your
Sim stops after every drink made. Make sure to try and get Very Inspired to give yourself a little edge while making
Milestone II - Electric Mixer
- Achieve Level 5 Mixology Skill (300 Satisfaction)
- Mix 10 Drinks at a Single Social Event (200 Satisfaction)
- Mix 3 Different Excellent Drinks (150 Satisfaction)
Pretty simple stuff here. As always try and combine Milestone components and have them do double duty. For example,
don't just do 10 of the same drink at a social event - do 3 different ones and you'll knock that out the 2nd and 3rd
component at the same time. The 10 drink component is pretty much all you will do at a party so forget about getting
a medal. I finished it with only an hour to spare.
Stage III - Beverage Boss
- Become an Adult (0 Satisfaction)
- Join the Mixology Branch of the Culinary Career (500 Satifaction)
- Achieve Level 7 in Mixology Skill (500 Satisfaction)

A very simple Milestone. My Mixologist was already 5/7 for the skill and just needed one more career level to get to
the Mixology branch option. I had a long break in week 2 between job days so I worked on skilling and purchased the
Night Owl and Morning Sim rewards. When you finally get to level 6 it's so nice because then you can "Practice Bar
Tricks" - no more shelling out simoleans on drinks that just end up in the garbage can! And the skill gain with
practicing tricks is a constant stream which is awesome.
Stage IV - Master Mixologist
- Achieve Level 10 Mixology Skill (1000 Satisfaction)
- Mix 10 Excellent Drinks While Inspired (750 Satisfaction)
- Create 10 Types of Excellent Drink (1000 Satisfaction)
So, as soon as Sam Malone (my tip of the hat to the TV show Cheers) joined the Mixology branch of the Culinary career
for the 3rd Milestone he turned right around and quit his job. The career is such a time hog and the Mixology branch
does not pay well compared to other careers. So I ended up completing his Aspiration and then with his Satisfaction
he had accumulated he purchased the Connections reward (3000 Satisfaction). Now I will be able to plop him into
another better paying Inspired-type of career such as writing or painting and have him immediately start at level 4.
Sam tended bar at the local nightclub to finish up his Aspiration.
Potion Master Reward Trait
The bonus trait for completing the Master Mixologist Aspiration is Potion Master. Now your mixologist with a few
shakes of the tumbler can instantly get into a certain state depending on what drink is consumed. Of course this has
interesting ramifications for other Sims as well. These drinks are essentially an alternative (albeit an expensive
one at $1000 each to make) to the 250 Satisfaction drinks in the Reward Store. As easy as it is to get Sims into
various emotional states, I personally think the cost of making these drinks is a bit high. But make no mistake -
it's guaranteed. There's a +100 moodlet to whatever emotion you're seeking to instantly put your Sim (or a target
Sim) into a "Very" state for a few hours. I'll drink to that!
