When writing a cover letter for a Bartending resume, you should focus on your most relevant and strong skills rather than flaunting all of your qualifications or the story of the whole life.
Use simple language and expressions and mix related buzzwords in the phrases to keep your reader interested.
In the content of your cover letter, direct the reader to your enclosed resume so that they will be able to know more about your skills and experiences, and eventually call you for an interview.
