Home Bar Accessories

It’s Friday night and you’re pretty excited because you’re hosting friends games night this weekend. You go through the mental checklist: games, finger foods, fun decorations… something is missing. The drinks!

The last thing you want is to be the friend that hosts a dry bar at games night. But if you don’t have the right tools and ingredients to make those banging cocktails this could end up being your reality. So, before the panic ensues here are 5 must have accessories for your home bar.

Must-have home bar accessories

    1. Bar spoon - Bar spoons are an essential tool for your home bar. They’re sometimes used as a measuring tool, but they also help to give you a good mix for your cocktails. If you’ve ever had a cocktail that just wasn’t mixed thoroughly, you know how annoying it can be. Not having a smooth blend between your syrup or bitters and chasers can really make the drink not as enjoyable. And it’s not enough to just use any tea spoon you have in your kitchen, as this can also be a hassle. The standard length is around 12.5 inches. If your spoon is too short your sleeves and fingers could end up in the drink and no one wants that. Having a bar spoon on hand ensures that the drinks are mixed and blended.
    2. Jiggers - The importance of these double sided measuring tools cannot be stressed enough. They have different measuring capacities on both ends which definitely saves time when mixing up your favorite drinks. It’s best to start out by getting a 1 ounce and 2 ounce jigger, as these are the typical measurements that you’ll need for most of your cocktails.
    3. Shakers - This doesn’t just look cool while you’re using it, it’s actually crucial for some mixed drinks and cocktails. Shaking mixes the ingredients, while rapidly chills the drink and helps to keep the consistency of the taste throughout the entire drink. So, if you’re not the best at stirring, a shaker is a definite must-have. Simply add the ingredients, shake, and pour.
    4. Cocktail syrup - Let’s talk about key ingredients. You can’t have cocktails without cocktail syrup, and since the quality and flavor of your syrup determines the quality of your cocktail, you want to make sure you get this ingredient right. Strong Water’s cocktail syrups are delicious, gluten-free, and non-GMO approved, and most of all they are delicious. You can mix your Old-Fashioned, margaritas, daiquiris and more. You simply need to add your choice of booze and additional ingredients, shake and stir, and enjoy.
    5. Cocktail bitters - For a complete flavor profile, you need to add bitters to your cocktails. Since cocktails are mostly made up of sweet and sour flavors, the bitters do a really great job of balancing out those flavors for a delicious cocktail. Strong Water’s cocktail bitters are a fantastic choice. These unique bitters will help you to effortlessly make world class cocktails, with Cherry, Orange, Aromatic, Lavender and Walnut flavors.

Now that you have this essential accessories and ingredients list, it’s time to make game night a true success, with your cocktails being the real star of the show! Shop now!
