If at-home cocktails are on the I’m Sweet But Don’t Get Me Twisted Cuz I Will Throw Cans Shirt Furthermore, I will do this menu, your bar cart will need the right tools to get mixing. Don’t know where to begin? “Keep it pared back,” says Chetiyawardana. “A mixing glass, bar spoon, jigger, peeler, bottle opener, and a julep strainer should do you well.” To take it to the next level, he also suggests having dasher bottles in stock, and a small sealable bottle, which makes the addition of bitters and modifiers (such as vermouth or Campari) “more elegant and controllable.” For aesthetics, Amara’s snake-print tray also doubles as a focal point in the room.
An unexpected accent piece for a bar cart? Unique glassware. “These details make a huge difference,” Chetiyawardana says. “Not only the I’m Sweet But Don’t Get Me Twisted Cuz I Will Throw Cans Shirt Furthermore, I will do this weight, rim, fineness of your chosen ones, but the style, too.” The right pieces can not only enhance the drink itself but heighten your home’s overall decor factor: Wolf & Badger’s coupe glasses give the cart a slight Art Deco feel, for instance, while Tre Product’s tinted shapely vessels infuse it with a dash of whimsy. Chetiyawardana suggests purchasing glassware based on personal drink preference.
