Summer seems to be the time of year that many of our young friends are setting up new homes and beginning their adult lives, including entering the wonderful world of home entertaining. Not surprisingly, inspired by the amazing bar carts showcased on Pinterest, one of the questions we are most often asked is what are the 10 essentials for the home bar? We recently discovered this great home bar essentials guide A Gift Personalized.
So the next question is where can you actually purchase some of these home bar essentials. Personalization Mall offers some great personalized barware including personalized 3-piece stainless steel cocktail shakers but does not offer most of the other items on their list. So we turned to One King's Lane to see what barware they currently had available at discounted pricing. We love this 5-Pc Stainless Steel Bar Tools. They also have nice selection of cocktail shakers including the match to the bar tools set.
Amazon also stocks some lovely bar tool sets (of course it does, Amazon has everything!)
As for ice buckets, you can either go with an ice bucket that can double as a chiller or a simple stainless steel ice bucket or an elegant crystal ice bucket like these by Waterford.
As for your glassware, we would stick with Amazon to pick up your collins glasses (also known as hi-balls) and cocktail coupe glasses since you can often get some pretty great deals and if you are an Amazon Prime member, you may also be able to get free 2 day shipping.
