Home Bars, Bar Carts and Trays are hotter than ever right now! So, we thought we would ask an expert… what do you really need to have a chic, functioning home bar? Revae Schneider the fabulous Chicago Mixologist and owner of Femme de Coup provided us with a list, and helped us shop for the “best of bar” essentials.
Whether you are looking to Re-jigger, or Register, or just want to Rock Out with the Hottest bar of the Holidays, read on….
Revae says, for a well stoked home bar you need the following; a jigger, (she likes OXO), a good shaker, a pretty stirring glass, with an equally lovely spoon, a julep strainer, and ice bucket with a scoop. Revae also loves vintage glassware, like the return of the classic coupe for a cocktail. She recommends “a good rocks glass with one or two cubes resting in the bottom or a less than half full glass”, and lastly a Collins glass.
