How To Improve Your Home Bar (When You’ve Reached Your Debt Ceiling)

If you’ve been following the news at all in the last few weeks, you’re probably aware that our country is having some debt problems... to say the least. Feel like you could maybe tighten the proverbial belt yourself? Check out our list of a few simple ways to improve your home bar (so you don’t need to go out and spend more), and don’t forget to watch Bar Rescue on Sundays at 10/9c on Spike!

1) Get some proper stemware.

Proper stemware goes a long way in making your home bar feel like a real bar. No one prefers to drink out of red plastic cups than a nice, classy glass-made-out-of-glass. As for essentials? Jon Taffer recommends: “Get some rocks glasses, some cocktail glasses, some martini glasses.”

2) Have some pride in your cocktails.

The nicer the drinks you pour, the more you’re going to want to stay at home for cocktails (and your friends will, too!). We all want to save a little money, but splurging on a few bottles of good liquor is a sound investment.

“Don’t pour armpit brand vodka!” says Jon Taffer. “Go get some decent brands so you have pride in your bar.”

Taffer also recommends buying some citrus fruit (think lemons, limes, oranges) for garnishes. There’s no reason to skimp on the inexpensive things that will truly elevate your drinks.

3) Consider DIY brewing.

Long the hobby of only the most fanatical of beer snobs, home-brewing beer has now been made easy by companies like Bitters & Esters. What could be greater than having a beer that you crafted with your own hands? (Having two.)
