5 Things Every Impressive Home Bar Should Include
An impressive and well-stocked part is an important element to entertaining at home. It is often the hub of activity and socializing when guests are present. This is especially true during the holidays. How will your bar measure up this holiday season? Before you host your next party, make sure your bar is stocked with these five things:
To create an impressive full bar, you will need an assortment of high-quality spirits. Vodka and bourbon or whiskey are essentials because they are used in so many popular drinks. You can also include gin, tequila, cognac and rum in your well-stocked bar.
Beer and Wine
Include a variety of beers and wine for those who do not prefer cocktails. Stock your home bar with an equal amount of light, dark, and imported beers. Wine should include both white and red varieties. You can also include a few bottles of bubbly for those occasions that call for it.
Mixers and Garnishes
For a well-crafted cocktail, make sure to have an array of mixers such as club soda, tonic, ginger ale, cola, and juices on hand. To finish it off, garnish your drinks just as they would at a local bar with citrus, olives, cocktail onions, or maraschino cherries.
You’ll also need the proper equipment to pour the perfect drink. Stock your home bar with corkscrews, a shaker, a sharp knife, a lemon zester, a blender, jigger measures, and a show-stopping ice bucket.
