ERMAHGERD! BERR CERRT STERTERR!
Don't know what to fill your bar cart with?? Never fear, I'm here to help. :)
This is Cortney's bar cart that I got her for Christmas. I searched high and low all around the LA county to find something cute and affordable. It was impossible. Plenty in the cute category. Zero in the affordable one. Then I remembered that Craigslist existed...I found one on craigslist and it looked like this:
Not the cutest...right?
So, I painted it gold, put some nice paper over the glass, sprinkled gold confetti everywhere, and VOILA!
(Beautiful fine paper found here.)
So, what do we put on it? I got Cortney and her hubs Ty ingredients for their favorite cocktails (Moscow Mule for her, Old Fashioned for him), some wine, and a few mixers to start!
Here's a list of everything we have on the cart:
- Simple Syrup
- Angostura Bitters
- Red & White Wine (We already drank the Rose...)
- Ginger Beer
- Pineapple Juice (Our fave addition!)
- Cards Against Humanity (duh)
- Regular Playing Cards
- Wine Wipes (CAUSE THEY GET THE RED WINE OFF YOUR TEETH AND LIPS!! Get em here.)
- Paper straws
- Notebook to keep record of new recipes we come up with!
I would say, start off with 2-3 of your favorite liquors and 2-3 of your favorite mixers. Then adding on is easy once you have a starting place and start to become a bartending pro.
