The Bar Mixes Every Host Should Have
What bar mixes belong in your cabinet? You should have enough mixes to cover everybody’s favorite cocktails, whether that’s at a party or a closer occasion. Here are six mixers that you want to make sure you have on hand when you’re building a cocktail set…
Gin and Tonic
A gin and tonic is one of the most classic cocktails, and you should make sure you always have this mix ready for Spring events—when it is most popular as a bubbly refresher. In addition to the mixer, you will, of course, need to buy a quality Gin.
An old fashioned is another classic cocktail that no mixing kit should ever be without. You just need bourbon along with the mixer. It’s great to pick up a mixer for an old fashioned, because they can have many different ingredients that are easy to run out of when you’re not paying attention.
Moscow Mules are an impressive cocktail to be able to put together on short notice. That’s exactly what having the mixer + Vodka on hand allows you to do. If you really want an impressive cocktail collection, make sure that you pick up the copper Moscow Mule mugs that famously take on the icy temperature of the drink.
Impress and warm your guests with the Hot Toddy. This citrusy drink is perfect for inviting people in out of the cold, especially duringVancouver winters and very impressive when you have it on hand and ready to be mixed. As long as you have Bourbon on hand to go with the mix, you can make a great Hot Toddy.
The Bloody Mary is a famous weekend refresher, perhaps most famously enjoyed at Sunday brunches following nights of adventure. A Bloody Mary is a great cocktail any time of year you have Vodka, whether that means cooling down in the summer or having a heartier drink in the cold winter.
Don’t forget this classic mixed drink when you’re filling out yourbar mix collection. The great thing about having this mix on hand is that you can mix it with either Gin or Vodka—creating two different but equally championed methods of preparation.
