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.

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