one of the things on my 101 in 1001 list is to stock and maintain my home bar cart. you may remember that i have the cart pictured here. i did a good job of cleaning it out and now i need to stock it with cute things. this was the best list i found so far:
i already ordered adorable straws and picks. there's not a whole lot of color in my apartment, but i like it that way. generally everything is neutrals and gold. black and gold, iowa colors ;) so here's how it's coming along so far:
the canvas print is from a photo my best friend meredith took at my law school graduation. she also bought me those shot glasses. the straws and picks i found on etsy, the tray is from target. the candle holder is from crate and barrel although i'm torn on keeping it. i never light it because i use my scentsy but i still think it looks pretty. thoughts?
i'm pretty set on glassware and most other utensils and tools (though i do need a pretty cocktail shaker!) so now it's on to the most important and of course most fun part - stocking the alcohol.
what do you recommend? any favorite brands, favorite drinks? i'd like to keep it stocked with the ingredients to make a bunch of different cocktails, so what's your go-to drink?
