Happy New Years: The Ultimate Bar Checklist


Happy New Years Eve, party people!

I cannot believe 2017 officially begins tomorrow, can you? In case you missed it, I rounded up some of my favorite moments from 2016 and oh, what a good year it was!

In honor of New Years Eve I thought it would be fun to put together the ultimate New Years Eve bar checklist. What’s great about this checklist is that you can use it for your party tonight and beyond!

Ever since I moved to the UES, I’ve been dying for a new bar cart. I’ve had my eye on this Williams-Sonoma silver bar cart for quite some time and I think I may just pull the trigger. Other bar cart must-haves: bubbles (Veueve, of course!), Mixers (Vermouth for dirty martinis, bitters and citrus mixers!

Bubbles + More

Must have stocked: Vodka, Scotch, Bourbon, Tequila, Gin, Rum, Orange Liquor, Campari, Grand Marnier and champagne!


Vermouth, Bitters, citrus mixers, craft syrups. Let’s not forget the soda water and tonic.

Bar Tools

Shaker, ice bucket + tongsstrainer, jigger, stirrer, vintage coasters, wine and beer opener.


Green olives, fresh berries, herb sprigs, citrus slices, sugars, salts and lots of ice! Adding fresh berries to champagne is one of my go-to moves whenever I host a party. <3


One should always have on hand: Highballs, tumblerswine glasses and champagne flutes.

Extra Details

It’s all in the details! Don’t forget: fresh flowers (duh), gold striped straws, fun cocktail napkins, a rattan tray and a marble ice bucket!
