If you are planning on opening a bar or adding a bar to your restaurant, you should be familiar with the science behind making drinks. In this blog, we’ll go over the bar supplies you will need to help your bar staff become smart, proficient professors in the field of mixology. Read on to learn more!

Inventory List for the Bar

Make sure that the bar is correctly stocked with the equipment and the bartender tools the staff will need to pour liquor, blend your drinks, and share cocktails. These critical pieces of bar equipment will help your team quickly prepare almost every kind of drink your customers could order.

  • Pourers: liquor pourers are available in standard or measured varieties. Measured liquor pourers are sold based on the amount of liquid that is dispended and every pour. They help you save money by controlling portion sizes and reducing any spills, making them the ideal pick for beginner bar staff. Professional bartenders prefer standard liquor because they provide a steady flow and help speed up your service.
  • Shakers: the bar shaker will provide a quick and easy way to mix drink ingredients while chilling cocktails with ice simultaneously. To help separate the ice from your drink while pouring, make sure to keep a number of bar strainers on hand.
  • Speed Railings: speed rails keep popular drink mixes and spirits close to the bar staff at all times, which will help speed up service on busy nights and thus the name too. They’re normally made of stainless steel and have drain holes for easy and fast cleaning.
  • Bar Blenders: Blended drinks are a few of the most popular menu items, especially during the busy summer. Bar blenders make preparing drinks quickly, so your bar staff can get back to other orders for customers.
