Starting a small bar
Bartending » Starting a small bar
To make a vast array of mixed drinks you need only a handful of ingredients. Listed below are the requirements for any good basic bar.
If you are serious about wowing your guests with your bartending abilities (everyone loves someone who can mix delicious cocktails!) then you will need more than just the above ingredients. However, this basic list permits you to mix many well known cocktails with a little room for experimentation.
It is interesting to note that many more recipes are possible from this list with just one or two flavored liqueurs added in. Adding, say, a coffee liqueur and some peach schnapps would open up quite a few more possibilities.
