What bar accessories do I need? That depends on what you and your guests prefer to drink. The evening usually starts out with a cocktail and then moves on to Wine. So you will need to ready for both. Martinis are a very popular start, so you will need the basics like a shaker, Jiggers, olive skewers and of course Martini glasses. You can’t serve a Marini in a highball glass. If someone requests a Moscow Mule, then you’re going to need the traditional Copper Cups. The truth is, you just don’t know what your guests are going to want so you best just be ready for anything. Here is a list of the basics you will need to outfit your Bar for the holiday.
- Jiggers (for measuring the pours)
- Pour spouts
- Skewers/Cocktail Picks
- Ice Bucket
For those that want to take it to the nest level you can add:
- Bar Spoon
You are also going to need to stock up on a variety of glassware. You’ll need tall and short highball glasses, Martini glasses and shot glasses. Then there is the wine glasses and they come with a science of their own.
