Fully Stocked Mocktail Bar Essentials

When you’re having friends or family over for drinks, it’s nice to be able to make anything they ask for. Whether you’re making cocktails, mocktails, or any mixed drink, the following utensils will make you look like a professional bartender:

Cocktail Shaker: Add ice to your favorite cocktail and shake it well to enjoy the ultimate chilled drink.
Jigger: Use to measure your ingredients to ensure you get the perfect ratios.
Strainer: Typically made from mesh, these are great for removing unwanted solids from ingredients such as herbs or citrus fruits.
Stir Spoons: These special spoons are used for cocktails that are stirred rather than shaken.
Peeler and Juicer: Many non-alcoholic cocktails include lemon and orange, so these two utensils come in handy. Extract delicious juice with a juicer and create perfect decorative details with a peeler.
Glassware: To make non-alcoholic cocktails, you'll need a variety of glasses and stemware. Make sure you have at least a couple of the most popular ones, e.g. martini or margarita glasses, whiskey glasses and red and white wine glasses.
