Keep the Bar Stocked for the Holidays
With family and friends coming in & out of your home during this holiday season, it's important to be sure your bar is stocked and ready for entertainment! Today we're sharing a couple of tips on a few essential items to keep around at all times.

3. Dark Rum
MIXERS + GARNISHES
Keep a few basic mixing staples around such as tonic water, club soda, cola and lemon lime soda, fruit juices and ginger ale. As for garnishes, knowing your go-to concoctions will help you determine what to have. Lemons, limes, maraschino cherries, olives and fresh herbs are good picks to keep around.
BAR TOOLS + GLASSWARE
A thoughtfully stocked bar includes the tools to tackle your cocktails.
Here's what you should have: 1. Ice Bucket
2. Bar Spoon
4. Jigger (measures shots)

CREATE A GO TO COCKTAIL
Establish your own signature cocktail, whether you do a different one for every party or use the same house recipe every time. Having this specific recipe eliminates the pressure of needing to play bartender. Keep in mind that your guests can always make their own drinks and have fun with the different garnishes.
