Are you planning on setting up a mini bar in your living room? Or perhaps your dining room. Wherever you decide on placing it, here are some of the must-haves of your “home entertainment center”, as listed by a barman:
1. Jiggers, for measuring your shots. If you’re not the scrooge type, a couple of pourers for the bottles should do the job just fine.
2. A shaker, if you feel like preparing the cocktails yourself. You might want to learn a few moves as well.
3. A strainer for emptying the shaker from ice, fruit chunks or other remains that go in the drink.
4. A muddler.
5. A bar spoon, for stirring, if you don’t feel like learning those moves. Don’t worry, you can still impress by learning how to make layered cocktails… you can use this long handled spoon for this as well
Some of the things that you already must have in your home are a knife, a juicer, a chopping board and whatever you may think of. Oh…don’t forget the drinks!
