In our house our bar corner is one of the most used bits of the house. Jim is an awesome cocktail maker, his Amaretto sours are just the perfect amount of sour and a little sweet, his Zombies are lethal and he's always raving about his Old Fashioned making skills. I am more of a gin and t maker or prosecco pourer, but I like to make sure that the corner is always stocked and looking pretty. The important stuff. I am the one that makes sure we have drink appropriate glassware and accompanying embellishments.
So I bring you the gift guide for others who place as much importance on a beautiful bar area as we do!
1. We're a big fan of Pop Chart Lab posters in our house and this constitution of classic cocktails poster is so detailed and awesome, it'd be a great addition to any bar area. 2. If you're serving good gin then the last thing that you should be doing is ruining it with cheap tonic. I love 1724 tonic as it lets the gin shine through! 3. Bitters are one of our must have bar items and I love that these Crystal Bitters won't ruin the look of your clear drinks - or discolour your fizz. 4. Talking fiz, don't you think a champagne coupe is just more glamorous than a flute, and I'm not really down with the whole rose gold thing but I adore these and think they would be beautiful out on show. 5. Another G&T must have - botanicals to bring out the flavours of the gin. It's amazing how adding botanicals can enhance the gin.
These are just a few of my picks for the bar fly in your life - what would you add?
