Welcome to Home Bar Network!

We want to make sure everyone is as prepared as possible to make cocktails on October 6, so we’ve compiled a shopping list of ingredients and tools you will need for class. Don’t worry, if you prefer to watch and not mix along with us, that’s fine too!

For those who want the full experience, here’s what you’ll need. (Full Amazon shopping list at bottom of page!)

*Note: The tools we’ve chosen are the exact tools we’ve used behind the bar for years, and if you take care of them, they’ll last you a lifetime. These tools will give you the best result when used in the manner we’ll teach you! However, if you’ve already got things at home that you’re comfortable using, it is still possible to achieve a great result! For a list of alternative tools you may already have, see our blog Home Bar Essentials.

 

MOJITO (Original & Mocktail)

1 Cup Ice, preferably crushed or nugget ice
