Whether you plan to host a cocktail party, or you just need that first cup of morning coffee, you’ll need to have the right drinkware on hand. Stock your cabinets and home bar with a selection of drinkware and bar supplies.
Bar Glasses and Mugs
Choose glassware designed for the beverages you’re serving. Consider these drinkware sets:
● Stemware. Wine glasses, martini glasses and champagne flutes are elegant additions to any bar setup. Wine glass sets come in traditional clear glass, as well as options for red or white, and plastic wine glasses suitable for travel or picnics. Add a twist to your martinis with martini glasses made from stainless steel or copper. Hurricane glasses or margarita glasses give themed parties an authentic feel.
● Cocktail Glassware Sets. Serve traditional cocktails in glass tumblers, highball and lowball glasses. Glasses with an etched pattern on the surface can give the aura of a vintage bar glass set. Copper and silver bar mugs and goblets are the right fit for drinks like Moscow mules and mint juleps.
● Crystal Drinkware Sets. Crystal adds a stylish and elegant touch to your bar set up. Show them off in a glass cabinet or wine glass rack. A crystal decanter is a tasteful way to display your favorite whiskey or brandy.
● Coffee Mugs. Choose a set of four or eight matching mugs. Store them on a countertop mug tree for easy access.
Complement your home bar glassware sets with the right tools to host a gathering or enjoy a quiet evening cocktail. The basics include wine openers, ice buckets and cocktail shakers. Keep drinks cold without diluting them with ice cubes made of stainless steel. Or, look for trays that make oversized ice balls, which melt slowly in drinks.
Store your glassware and accessories in an attractive wine rack. Choose a holder that displays just one bottle artfully on your bar, or go with a countertop or floor wine rack that stores dozens of bottles.
