3 Tips for Entertaining with Your New Home Bar

Last updated 5 years ago

Once you find the perfect casual dining furniture with which to set up a home bar, it is time to start using your new space! The best way to entertain in your new bar area is to keep it fully stocked and ready for guests. Use the following tips to make the most of your home bar setup:

Be Sure to Have All the Supplies
Your home bar can be fully functional if you have the right supplies. Equip your bar with plenty of ice bins, spoons, shakers, jiggers, and muddlers. On days you are entertaining, make sure you have ice, sugar, salt, lemons, and other garnishes you might need to whip up a cocktail. You should also have a nice selection of glassware that you can use to serve wine, martinis, cocktails, and shots. Complete the setup with a blender that you can use to make frozen drinks.

Keep Main Liquors On Hand
As long as you have cognac, white rum, gin, bourbon, vodka, and tequila in your bar area, you can create a menagerie of cocktails for your guests. If you know you are throwing a party, you might also want to open a few bottles of wine and beer so you can meet every taste. Do not forget to stock up on mixers like soda and juice.

Start Making Drinks
As your guests arrive, start testing out your bartending skills! While they get comfortable in your bar stools, ask them what they want to drink. As a host, it is your job to walk around the party and make sure everyone has enough to eat and drink.
