With house party's slowly ramping back this year, why not add a little flare to your living / entertaining space by including a Bar Cart. Bar Carts are an excellent and practical piece of furniture, especially if you have a little nook in your living or dining room. The best part, they are on wheels, so you can manoeuvre them around your room, onto the balcony or even into the backyard, depending where your party is.
When buying a Bar Cart, be sure to be sympathetic to the interiors in your space, if your house is relatively modern, try and go for a clean line cart. Likewise, if your house is on the eclectic side, try and look at intricate detail in the cart, that could also be a standout piece on its own. Check out our online store for a collection of Bar Carts.
So what does a good bar cart look like and how to make sure it is up-to scratch before hosting your next cocktail party:
Cocktail Shaker: To shake all the cocktail contents together.
Strainer: Strains the cocktail into the glasses.
Ice-Bucket: To chill your Champagne and wine
Ice Cubes: For your Ice Bucket
Peeler: To peel the rind for your cocktails.
Shot Glass: To measure your liquor
Glasses: Cocktail glasses are a must, whiskey glasses are definitely the most versatile glass on the market, and probably the best ones to include on your bar cart to allow for a range of cocktail drinks.
We highly recommend mixing up the liquor bottle sizes and shapes to keep the bar cart interesting. A mixture or white and dark spirits ensures you are catering for all your guest's taste as well. Keep a good stock of mixers and garnishes; think dried oranges and lemons or herbs such as rosemary.
