Get Smart on Bar Essentials
Whiskey Stones. Another really popular review that I posted a while back that includes stuff that is awesome and also stuff that sucks is my Vodka Review: The Good, the Bad and the Overrated.
Today I'm going to talk about some of the sweet swag that BarProducts.com was cool enough to sent me. But before I start, if you have something that you want me to review- go ahead and send me some and I’ll be happy to write about it. Game On.
ITEM 1: Sweet Openers
I can’t stress enough that you can NEVER have too many openers. I spread them all over my house in different places. You never know when there will be some kind of emergency and you’ll have to immediately crack a beer. Also, one way bartenders accessorize themselves is with their opens, sometimes stuck in a sweatband around their arm- one of the few opportunities we can try and look awesome because bars usually make us wear stupid uniforms.
First, a jigger is like a small measuring cup, but for booze. I make a lot of drinks at home and this thing ispretty cool because it measures a lot of different qualities (from ½ to 3 ounces in different intervals) in one. This way I can measure so my drinks at home don’t suck.
ITEM 3: Bumper Stickers
These kind of speak for themselves. I’ll likely to go up on a tip jar. Remember people, tip your bartenders.
OK, I'm done doing this.
