Bringing back the bar… stocked with all your favorite spirits & interesting finds along the way, home bar’s are a great thing to have around. We always love having friends over for dinner, and it’s fun to have a bar full of unique beverages to offer. We’re working on perfecting our bar tending skills lately.
It’s easy to turn a variety of furniture into a bar, here are a few I think are pretty great…
Stocking the bar is essential. I think it’s super fun to have some interesting finds through your travels, but there are always the basics which are great to have around… whiskey, vodka, gin, tequila & bourbon. Homemade brandied cherries are great to have around, and always some great olives for martinis.
A few favorites/staples around our places:
2 oz. rye whiskey
1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
2-3 dashes angostura bitters
2 1/2 oz. Gin or Vodka
1/2 oz. dry vermouth
2-3 dashes bitters (orange or angostura work well)
good green olives
We also like to sip on: Irish Whisky, Mescal, Aquavit
