Entertaining at home is a year-round activity, and if you love to host a great party, a home bar is a must.
Whether you’re serving up exotic cocktails, fine wines, or non-alcoholic mixed drinks, the avid party host or hostess deserves the very best tools to impress guests.
Merchants of Beverage, a highly-curated online destination for Champagne, spirits and fine wines from around the world, has announced a new collection of professional-grade luxury barware, stemware and bar supplies for your home bar area.
We say “professional-grade” because the large percentage of available products are from Cocktail Kingdom, known to be the favorite manufacturer of barware among bartenders.
The collection of products can be found in the Barware and Stemware category of the site, which you can browse through here. From classy cocktail shakers to an instant round ice cube maker, we’ve added quite a few of these to our wish list. Check out our top picks in the slideshow above.
Once you have your tools, try making this stirred cocktail:
- Add all ingredients to mixing glass.
- Add ice from 1.25” ice tray and stir vigorously with barspoon until chilled.
- Place strainer on top of mixing glass and hold together as you strain the liquid into a coupe, cocktail or martini glass – filled with ice if you desire, or with one 2” cube, or no ice (neat).
