10. Cocktail shaker

Cocktail shaker

The secret ingredient to some of the best concoctions is a good shake, ideally via a cocktail shaker. Sure you’ll always have a few odd friends who preferred their appletini stirred, but it’s the shake that evenly disperses ingredients in more complex drinks. For extra flair and easy measuring, opt for a clear acrylic one.

Searching for the right home bar accessories is a learning process full of unexpected factoids. Did you know that the best way to store wine is angled cork down? It’s true and now you can work it into conversations with a tilted wine rack made from rustic, old world materials.

2. Mixers


How you stock mixers depends on how often you like to imbibe. Three liter bottles of tonic water and soda make economic sense, though they’ll likely go flat unless you’re having a party. Juices have a slightly longer shelf life once opened, but they’re space hogs once opened. Go for cans if you like variety without committing to a week of vodka cranberries.
