Erika Bretchel

We’ve reviewed how to find the perfect bar setup for your home and I helped you stock your bar with essentials. Now, it’s time to review the glassware, barware, and gadgets needed to make your bar the perfect bar for you.

Like I said in my previous posts, there’s no right bar or wrong bar. It’s all about the perfect bar for your needs. Review the types of drinks you like to make and buy the glasses and tools you need to make those drinks. Once you get it your bar started you can add to it as you discover more drinks. Here is my essential barware…
