When your home bar is finally finished you will need to stock it so you can pour drinks and entertain. You will need to buy some bar supplies and bar accessories. You can break these down into three basic groups: alcohol, mixers, and bar accessories. What you finally decide to have behind the bar will depend on what drinks you serve the most of, but below are basics.

Bar Accessories:

These are some of the basics you will need to mix and serve your drinks. You may find many other bar tools that you like and some of the ones in the list you won't use. That is what makes having your own bar fun, it reflects you and you tastes.



The brand names and types of alcohol that you use to stock your bar depend on your favorite brand and what type of drinks you like. So, if you like rum and cokes you will want to stock up on those two.

There are many other types of liquor that you may choose to have depending on your personal preference. You can shop for them at Randall's Wine and Spirits
