Shaken or Stirred? Home Bartending Tools

Buying bartending tools the professionals use makes sense. Commercial bar tools and supplies are designed to withstand the repeated use of a busy restaurant or bar. If they can do that, they certainly stand up to occasional bartending at your house. And guess what? Professional bar tools are often less expensive. 

Many tools that bartenders use increase efficiency, quality and consistency of their liquid libations and although that isn’t important to most home bar keeps, using them regularly will certainly mix up your drink game. Here’s a primer for what home bar essentials you should consider having on hand to serve your favorite cocktails.
