Wipe Down Everything First
No matter if your bar cart is brand new, vintage, or repurposed, it’s a good idea to give it a thorough wipe down before you start restocking. Use a gentle cleanser or a mix of water and white vinegar to clean the surface and any glassware, decanters, or other items that will be stored on the cart. This will help ensure that your bar cart is clean and ready to be stocked with fresh new items.
Refresh All Your Existing Glassware
If you’ve been using your bar cart for a while, chances are that your glassware could use a good cleaning. Take the time to wash each glass thoroughly by hand or run it through the dishwasher to remove any residue or buildup. This will ensure that your drinks taste fresh and that your guests can enjoy them without any unpleasant aftertaste.
Bar Tool Essentials
Once your bar cart is clean and ready to be stocked, it’s time to make sure you have all the bar tool essentials. A cocktail shaker, jigger, strainer, and stirrer are all must-haves for any well-stocked bar cart. You might also want to add a bottle opener, corkscrew, and ice bucket to your list, depending on your preferences.
Add Cocktail Picks and Cocktail Napkins
