Shaken, Not Stirred

Shaken, Not Stirred - Dixie & Grace

On a visit to Portugal, my husband and I sat quietly in the quaint living room of the winter home of family friends from Bath, England.  The hostess entered the room pushing a trolley with a complete bar set up. The atmosphere is so much more relaxed when the host or hostess has everything on hand for serving.  No need to jump up and leave the room to refreshen drinks.  It seems the tradition of the bar cart and bar cabinet have made a comeback with lots of variations and price points.

Here are a few bar carts that I have used on projects.  

1: Industrial Bar Cart from Zin Home

I discovered these cool ice trays from Peak Ice works perfecting a fine quality scotch. While there, check out the book "Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails

These wine barrel emblems, from Formations, would make an excellent accessory for your bar.

2: A beautiful gold gilt, high-quality bar cart or "etagere" from England, by Vaughn Designs.  CLICK HERE to purchase on Dixie & Grace.
