ALTERNATIVE BAR TOOLS
PRACTICE YOUR COCKTAIL MAKING SKILLS WITH THESE ALTERNATIVE BAR TOOLS
Safe at home but missing your bar tools? Using these everyday kitchen utensils, you can make the most of this time and improve your cocktail making skills. Now, pass the rolling pin!
- An egg cup or shot glass can be a perfect jigger substitute. For a balanced cocktail make sure you pour the correct measures and most importantly drink responsibly.
- Get shaking with an empty jam jar. Simply fill it with ice, add your desired ingredients and give it a good shake. Once it’s nice and cold, pour into your glass and viola!
- No muddler? No problem. Grab a rolling pin or wooden spoon and practice your muddling skills.
- You don’t need a bar spoon to perfect your stirring technique. A chopstick, skewer or even a regular dessert spoon works just as well.
