These are the basic home bar gear essentials recommended by some invoice and some expert bartenders in the cocktail making business.
Our Favorite Bar Gear
Best Muddler – Winco Muddler
One of my favorite muddlers. It is easy to hold, lightweight and does what it is supposed to do – crush stuff. Easy to clean. You can easily rinse off between drinks.
Best Jigger – Winco Jigger
Another Winco favorite. A jigger is a staple to have at any home bar. A jigger measures the perfect amount of alcohol for your cocktail. This jigger is inexpensive and measures 1ounce and 2 ounces. This jigger is simple, classy and easy to clean.
Best Strainer – OXO Cocktail Strainer
Your shaker may come with a strainer already, but not all strainers are created equal. This OXO strainer allows you to pour/strain cocktails without making a mess. It has a raised lip prevents liquids from dripping and it does not cost an arm and a leg.
Best Shaker – Hatch Cocktail Shaker
Finding a good shaker is hard find. This is shaker is not a letdown. Once you find a good shaker, it is hard to go back to muddling and such in a highball glass. This shaker is sturdy and pretty. You won’t be disappointed.
Best Bar Spoon – A Bar Above Spoon
Who needs a bar spoon? You do. This spoon has an extra-long and narrow handle makes it easy to chill, mix and dilute a cocktail in the mixing glass before you serve it. This spoon provides great value and quality.
