If there is one thing the past few years have taught us, it’s how to be comfortable at home! Wanting to Mix it like a pro in the comfort of your own home? Look no further with our go to guide on the top 5 essential cocktail tools to create those dreamy, boujee cocktails.

Whether you are completely new to creating cocktails or you’re a seasoned pro, there are some bar tools that every mixologist will need!

While it can be fun to have an assortment of bar tools when creating your masterpiece, if we had to pick a handful of essentials, we would recommend the below

  1. Cocktail Shaker
    Shake it like a polaroid picture! The first and probably the most essential tool on our list is the Cocktail Shaker. There are many varieties of shakers, some come with built in strainers but our go-to would be the Boston shaker. There’s a reason that this is the go-to shaker for high quality bartenders!

  2. Strainer 
    A worthy purchase for your at home bar! Although some shakers come with a built-in strainer, not all shakers do. Using a strainer ensures that you have a smooth and satisfying drink, because no one likes floaties!  Keep those ice cubes and pulp at bay with a strainer.
  1. Jigger
    Precision is key when you are creating your work of art. The jigger ensures that you add just the right amount of alcohol to your cocktails, as too much or too little can really through a spanner in the works! The hour-shape design offers two separate measurements to suit your taste buds. 
  1. Muddler
    Wanting to absolutely nail the delightful Mojito? This will be your best friend! The muddler will draw out the rich flavours of your fresh ingredients. The hints of fresh mint, strawberry and lime will have your taste buds dancing the night away.
  1. Bar Spoon
    Think that the bar spoon is just like any other spoon you have in your kitchen drawer? Think again.. No spoon does the job as good as what a bar spoon can do. You can garnish, muddle, measure, stir and layer your cocktails, making the bar spoon a versatile tool and a must-have for any mixologist.
