A bar cabinet is the ultimate luxury item for the home. For those who love to entertain, a properly stocked bar makes mixing cocktials so much easier than digging in the kitchen cabinet.
We have prepared the following guide of essential bar supplies that you should always have on hand.
NOW THE GOOD STUFF
The star of the bar is the alcohol. You don't necessary need top shelf stuff but it depends if the alcohol is to be used mainly for cocktails or served straight. To start with, an assortment of wine is a staple for entertaining. It’s always a good idea to offer different varietals that range from crisp or fruity to buttery white wines, or dry, full-bodied to more fruit-forward reds. Don’t forget the bubbles!
Beer is also an essential for any get-together. Like wine, a range of beer choices will help guests find something they enjoy. Be sure to offer a mix of ales, lagers, IPAs, wheat beers and stouts. Plus, a handful of ciders would be ideal for those who like a more sparkly beverage.
Beyond wine and beer, there are a handful of key liquors and mixers that round out a well-stocked bar.
There you go! A checklist of essential spirits/wines and tools to entertain like a pro. Salut!
