Reading Time: 3 minutes

Having a home bar can be a great way to entertain guests while bars are closed due to the Coronavirus.

So while we can’t bar hop or meet strangers at the bar, it’s a great time to bond with those you’re already close to over a cocktail or more.

Home Bar Essentials + Checklist

Here are our top picks for bar essentials to help you set up your home beverage station.

#1 Crew Bottle

We love using Crew bottles to infuse our favorite beverages. We infuse our vodka with jalapenos to add a kick to our Gimlets.

They unscrew from the bottom which makes for easy infusing and cleaning.

#2 Gentleman’s Trove

The ArT Wine Preserver keeps your wine fresh by removing oxygen from the bottle before it can be ruined. Simply spray the preserver into your half-filled bottles and close them until the next serving.

We love using preservers to prevent waste and keep our wine tasting great.

#8 Cocktail Kits 2 Go
