At faveable, we believe every true gentleman knows how to serve the perfect drink. Be it an Old Fashioned, a glass of champagne, or just a tonic with lime, you should always make sure you know how to work your magic behind the bar. The best way to start is with the perfect set-up.

A proper host knows what his guests need and one of those things is the right booze. The greatest tip we've ever learned is this: Always have a good balance of bottom shelf and top shelf liquors. You should start the night off with top shelf and, as the party dwindles, you can stash the good stuff for another time. It's just one way to help keep a good, well stocked bar without draining your funds.

Below, we've listed eight items that will help you get your at-home bar to a proper serving standard. Whether you need just a few handy items (we suggest checking out the lime press and the drip stoppers) or you're starting from scratch, we've got you covered.

It's the small joys in life that make it great. Take this lime press, for instance. You'd think squeezing limes with your hands is fine, that is, until you're in your kitchen making pitchers of margaritas all afternoon for your guests. Not only does it take some of the strain from your muscles, it also gets more juice from the fruit than what you would normally get from hand-squeezing. Even better, it's dishwasher safe, so clean-up is just a little easier.

The idea of putting rocks in your glass might sound a little weird, but trust us, these are awesome. When your whiskey aficionado friend comes up to your bar station and sees one of these natural soapstone cubes in his/her DOF (that's a double old fashioned glass), they're going to trust your bartending skills. Because they're made from soapstone, they won't scratch your glassware and just need a good rinsing to get clean.

Crafted of stainless steel, this sturdy, sleek, modern cart will take your entertaining game to the next level. It features two tiers of mirrored glass and a removable tray, so you can spread things out. The rolling casters mean you can roll the bar from room to room, from pre-dinner all the way to the aperitifs (a fancy word for a night cap).

You might be shocked to realize this set of four shot glasses is made of real Himalayan pink salt. Well, don't worry. Since they're made of salt, they're naturally anti-bacterial and will give your shots that extra kick. They need very little maintenance and will last you for quite a while. Just wipe them clean and store them safely.

Ryan will draw you in before you know it. He’s just that kind of man. Ryan was born in New York, but mostly raised in Texas, but he’s not carrying around either accent. Instead, he’s got his own form of universal English, made eloquent by his love of words.

Ryan is certainly making the most of his Bachelor’s in both Creative Writing and Sociology. He’d wanted to be a jazz singer in his more youthful years, but we’re certain he’s made the right choice. And, when the pencil is down, you’ll find him outside with his dog Klaus, running through the small town of Denton. He craves old-fashioned whiskey, well-made jeans, and a good murder mystery.
