5 Ways to Upgrade Your Bar

If you love to entertain guests at home, then having a well-stocked bar is essential. Here are 5 ways to elevate your bar at home for entertaining:

  1. Invest in quality bar tools and glassware: Having high-quality bar tools like shakers, strainers, and jiggers can make a huge difference in the quality of your cocktails. Similarly, investing in good glassware like these 'Bubble' Hand-Painted Hand-Blown Glasses from Venable Moore can enhance the drinking experience for your guests. We also love these glass lantern light holders by Mrs. Alice to set the mood!

  2. Experiment with unique ingredients: Try adding some unique ingredients like fresh herbs, homemade syrups, or bitters to your bar. This will add depth and complexity to your cocktails, making them more interesting and flavorful. Try this Gris Gris Cocktail Magic Jalapeno Hex syrup for a little spicy kick!  

  1. Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins. Come up with a unique saying for your bar that represents you or your home. Or put your name or monogram on a set of cocktail napkins! This can be a great way to impress your guests and make your home bar stand out.

  2. Display your spirits creatively: Instead of hiding your liquor bottles away, display them creatively on a tray like this Laqured one from Well Made Home. This will not only add visual interest to your space, but it will also make it easier for your guests to select their drink of choice. We also love this Decantor from Estelle Colored Glassware. 

  3. Offer non-alcoholic options: Not everyone drinks alcohol, so be sure to offer some non-alcoholic options like mocktails or alcohol-free beer and wine. This will ensure that everyone feels included and can enjoy your hospitality.
