Summer is the perfect time to enjoy those favourite tipples and with the festive season in full swing, it’s time to bring out the classy entertainer in you and invest in a few principle pieces for your next soiree.
A little while back I pulled together a few dapper bar cart options (here). Stocking the essential is all part in parcel in showcasing a slick bar cart. From the decanter to the shaker, each piece forms part of the display. So to style your cart with the right tools of the trade to make that perfect cocktail or pour that fine spirit, I’ve sourced a few things to help get you going and the inspiration flowing with these various styles.
When enjoying a refined drop, case it in something just as fine as the drop its self. Present it in a sharp way with a fine crystal decanter. Even if your whiskey may not be at the pricey end of the spectrum, popping your whiskey in a classy decanter will simply add a cultured touch to entertaining as well as your display. Also having your liquor on hand rather than moving Tupperware containers out of way to find your booze is the simplest step in keeping organised when hosting. Check out some of these polished pieces below.
For the wine enthusiasts, a carafe / decanter enhances you consumption experience. When poured slowly onto the decanter, this helps aerate the wine and fill with oxygen, elevating the flavours and fragrance. This particularly helps younger wines that aren’t quite matured.
Using a tray is a great way help separate your cart into sections and get organised. Store your highball and tumbler glassware or your wine/champagne cooler with bottle opener, wine pourer and stoppers.
Enjoy a Summer of fun and stay dapper gents.
