If mixology eludes you, rest assured, you’re not alone. We hesitated when it came time to writing recipes for cocktails. But the more we experimented, adding teas to the mix, the more comfortable we felt with a cocktail shaker in hand. Put in lots of practice, and consider these Home Cocktail Bar essentials. Perfect for the pursuit of mixology.
From our Bar Boards from local artisan Bobby McCarley to Microplane Zesters, having a few key tools in your bar will have you mixing like a pro. Other tools I love having in my tool chest are our Citrus Juicers for oranges, lemons and limes. The ForLife Flask Iced Tea Jug for holding big batches of Sangria and Rum Punch!
