There’s something about making cocktails at home that feels so vintage and fun. While my husband and I don’t do it ALL the time, we have a few key staples in our home bar that we couldn’t do without, such as a cocktail shaker, jigger (used to measure ounces), strainer, and a great tray. We also have these amazing round ice cubes molds that we always have ready to go in the freezer for any cocktail we make (well, except for our beloved dirty martinis, served up).
I love cocktail tools that look good enough to display on our bar cart, and this Mint Pantry™ Asher 9 Piece Copper Bar Set from Wayfair is the perfect way to get all the tools you need while still fitting in with your decor. I’m obsessed with anything copper lately, and the accompanying tray and ice bucket are definitely a major perk for this set. When you’re not serving cocktails on it the tray would also look great to hold several bud vases in your kitchen or on your dining room table (my cocktail tray is actually on my bathroom vanity right now with perfume bottles and makeup brushes artfully displayed on it!).
Looking for a great cocktail recipe to serve with it? I LOVE these skinny margaritas from Cookie and Kate!
