La Vista City Offices - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but La Vista City Offices is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

Stocking up your home bar

By Russ Cobbe

Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.

Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.

Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato).

Ice should go in the glass first to avoid splashing and to cool the ingredients as they get added.

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
