This week, Cocktail Maestro Norm Owen continues our lesson in building a bar with his list of essential tools for the more advanced bartender!
Bitters – actually these 3 are essential: Angostura bitters, orange bitters, and Peychaud’s bitters. With these three you’ve got every classic covered.
Fancy skewers – to hold your all your garnishes, those maraschino cherries, fruit peels, cucumber ribbons, etc…
Ice cube trays & moulds – these come in all kinds of wonderful shapes and sizes, and instantly enhance the look of your cocktail!
Paring knife – to carve those garnishes into any shape you wish!
Atomizers or spray bottles – to mist your cocktail with subtle aromas of smoky whisky or whatever…
Whipped Cream dispenser – designed for home-made whipped cream, but you can froth all kinds of things for your cocktail with it!
