Get your home bar ready for your next party with friends and check what kind of bar accessories will you need to serve perfect martini (shaken not stirred), classic Negroni or trendy Hugo Spritz. And we are not talking about all the alcoholic and non-alcoholic ingredients, sweet syrups, lemons or mint but the best bartender tools and great design!
What should I keep in my home bar?
According to bartenders, you should stock your home bar or a bar cart, with the following basic bartender tools:
- shaker (they all do the same thing basically but come in different versions and design (in a set, with a strainer or without, etc.) so choose whichever best suits you, seals well and separates easily
- bar spoon
- jigger or measuring cup
- and obviously, some nice glasses to serve your drinks
If you are a wine lover you should also have:
- two sets of wine glasses (for white and red wine),
- a corkscrew
- wine stoppers and pourers to aerate your wine and made it more aromatic
and if you want to keep your wine bottles on the kitchen top, think about a stylish wine rack that would add character to the interior. Check our gift guide for wine lovers for more interesting ideas and the best presents for wine connoisseurs.
Getting your home bar ready? Keep it cool!
When choosing accessories for your home bar don’t forget that drinks and cocktails taste best when they are cool. Therefore make sure, you have got some ice tools at hand (such as ice moulds, ice tongs and ice buckets) and that you keep your bottles in bottle coolers or in the fridge.
