Bar Necessities for Your Virtual Happy Hours

Between cocktail classes and virtual happy hours, I have discovered that I really have been lacking in some of the basic bar supplies I really need.  I did some digging and found some items that have made a big difference for me.

The right glasses are key. 

You can’t sip a martini from a tumbler and a Moscow mule the same when it is consumed from a beer glass.  Here are some of the most haves in glass ware to get your bar started.

Shake, shake, shake – shake your shaker. 

Whether you are making a martini or mixing a cocktail, it is important to have a great shaker.  I like this three-piece set because it comes with a measuring jigger and mixing spoon.

Muddle through it. 

If you are combining fruits or herbs with other ingredients, you will want to gently mash them with a muddler.  I like both the stainless steel and wood versions.

You can never go wrong with a full bar tools set.  I like this one because it has 14 pieces with things you might not even realize you use until you actually have one.
