Bar Cart Starter

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:

Liquids

  • Bourbon
  • Vodka
  • Malibu
  • Fireball
  • Amaretto
  • Simple Syrup
  • Angostura Bitters
  • Pimm's 
  • Red & White Wine (We already drank the Rose...)
  • Ginger Beer
  • Pineapple Juice (Our fave addition!)

Fun Things!

  • Cards Against Humanity (duh)
  • Regular Playing Cards
  • Wine Wipes (CAUSE THEY GET THE RED WINE OFF YOUR TEETH AND LIPS!! Get em here.)
  • Muddler
  • Shaker
  • Strainer
  • Paper straws
  • Jigger
  • Candle
  • 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. 

Snap a pic of your bar cart and tag us in IG @AWhimsyWonderland!
