Mixing drinks at home is an easy enough thing to pull off. Pick up a bottle of booze at the liquor store, add a mixer and boom, bottoms up. But if you're looking to have some options, or even just a little sophistication to your at-home imbibing ways, we suggest stocking a home bar.
With a well-stocked home bar, you can mix just about any cocktail your happy-hour yearning heart desires. It's quite an investment at first, but just think of all the money you'll save not ordering those overpriced cocktails at the bar. Knowing what's essential and what's just extra can be tricky, unless you have this awesome chart from our friends at Vine Pair below.
Check it out. Get started on your home bar. Save money -- and drink better cocktails.
