Over the past few months bar carts, cabinets, stands and displays have taken over Pinterest and become the new ‘must have’ home accessory. Although I struggle with the concept of a bar cart far too much dusting required in my opinion! I have managed to dream up and find a bar cabinet for the new flat. Not only does it make me feel like I’m embracing my new ‘adult’ status, it’s a fantastic excuse to have alcohol on tap!
Alongside the alcohol itself, a bar cart or cabinet is a great way to encourage your creative cocktail making side. Whether you’re a connoisseur of flavours or new to cocktail creations, House of Fraser have put together a brilliant cocktail recipe wheel which acts as a great guide when creating your very own at home cocktails. If you’re a fan of tequila based drinks, prefer vodka as your tipple of choice or would rather opt for whiskey, it’s got your inspo needs covered.
Once you’ve picked that perfect combination, it’s time to get mixing! House of Fraser also have some pretty gorgeous pieces to keep the entire cart/cabinet & all the accessories on trend. There is the Casa Couture Copper Cocktail Shaker* which a firm favourite to shake up that Bond ready martini and I also love their Casa Couture Beaten Metal Cocktail Tool Set* so you can strain, stir or measure each glass.
As it’s Friday, the end of the working week, let’s give that cocktail wheel a spin and dive in! I’ve always joked that my flat will be a drinks venue not a dinner party space but with such gorgeous bar wear alongside the perfect cooper accessories I think I’m onto a winner ;)
