One Good Thing: How to Set Up a Fancy Bar Cart in Your Own Home

published Mar 15, 2021

Welcome back! This week, I’ve partnered with Cointreau to show you how to create the perfect bar cart, so that you and your family can have your very own fancy restaurant-style cocktail hour at home. Stocked with your favorite essentials — plus a few special ingredients — a good bar cart is set and ready for any cocktail, anytime.

My bar cart begins with basic tools, like a cocktail shaker and jiggers, and ends with some festive finishing touches. And in between? The makings of one good cocktail: The Original Margarita. It’s the classic recipe, made with 1 part Cointreau, 2 parts tequila, and 1 part fresh lime juice. It’s one of my favorites.

Follow along to learn how to set up your own, and let’s toast to a safe happy hour at home!
