We got our bar cart a few weeks ago now and I’ve been excited to show it to you properly ever since. We opted for this one in the end (after MUCH deliberation. I just kept coming back to this as my favourite!) and always had this spot in our hallway in mind for it. I think, being round and quite petite that it just fits perfectly in this space. We’d never really had the right thing for here and I keep telling Andrew that it was waiting for it all along. He’s obviously a big fan of that theory. 😉
I thought I’d share today where I got all our cocktail paraphernalia from, and also just show you around, in case you’re feeling a bar trolley in your future too!
I picked up these little glasses and this decanter recently and love the gold foil work on them, particularly the splatter print. We have a bit of a cactus theme going on here too, with cactus glassware and this sweet little trivet from H&M. I also added this gold tray after realising that the marble top on our trolley water marks quite easily. It does polish out, but I decided to take no chances when pouring drinks, particularly coloured ones!
All of our other glasses were picked up really inexpensively at IKEA. I particularly love the cut glass ones for that sweet vintage feel. I think they’d be perfect for serving my Moscato Strawberry Lemonade. I also got a jug a little while ago for making larger batches of it!
Our cocktail shaker is from M&S and I went for this one because of the pretty glass and gold top. To be honest it’s probably not the best in terms of functionality (we have a good plastic one that we picked up in Sainsbury’s!) but it sure does look the part.
An Instagram friend told me about this recipe book and I had to get it. I love that all the cocktails in it have a story behind them and a literary twist. Cocktails and literature – it was made for me! 🙂
We’ve been experimenting with lots of new recipes (and some mocktails for the kiddos too!) since we brought our cart home. You can check out our …
And keep your eyes peeled for our ginger honeycomb gin recipe coming soon. It’s literally the best!
