We know you love your drink. We also know you have meant to set up your own beautiful home bar. What’s stopping you? Why not start building a small one of your own instead of putting it off for another year? To start, cement your basics of mixology by reading and watching videos. Then get a tool guide and enlist the essential bar tools. Collect essential mixers, glassware, and barware and stock up on your favorite spirits, whiskey, rum, and wines. A home bar is not only a great space to curate your mixes, but it’s also a perfect place to celebrate with your friends and family. Setting up a new home bar allows you to show off your mixing skills too. So, promise yourself that next year you will build your own home bar space and be your own bartender and surprise your guests with your skills!
2. Learn a new cocktail or mocktail recipe every month
It’s great to have weekly parties but, repeating cocktail recipes can be a mood downer. For the new year, why not challenge yourself and learn something new? And when you are on it, consider these tips from experts for making cocktails at home. Try mixers and liquors that you haven’t tried before, experiment with them, and create new recipes. Having a new drink on the menu every month can help you expand your bar palate and give a hint of different flavors and mixology knowledge.
