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.
