The Drink Nation Presents: The Home Bar Project

Have you ever dreamed of having an amazing home bar, filled with bottles you actually use and the tools you need to execute a fine crafted cocktail? Enter the Home Bar Project. Through this series we are going to take this challenge piece by piece. We’ll teach you the proper techniques and make sure the spirits you purchase aren’t collecting dust on your back bar.

We've laid everything out in a way that will not require an expensive initial investment. As you follow along with each drink, you'll acquire different ingredients or tools that will slowly build up to your own, complete home bar.

Show us how you’re doing or show us what YOU'RE making on Instagram and Twitter with #HomeBarProject. Got questions? Hit us up on Twitter (@TheDrinkNation) or Facebook.
