Art of the Bar Cart: American Mule Bar
Whether you’re hosting a small gathering for a few friends or a full blown holiday party with RSVPs from everyone you know, we want to help make this season festive and stress-free!
One of our favorite party tricks is to set up a cocktail station… on a bar cart, coffee table, counter, buffet, or whatever surface you have. On Tuesdays this month, we’re going to share some of our favorite setups, and tips to create your own! For even more inspiration, follow our Art of the Bar Cart board on Pinterest. If you have photos of your home bar set up, or cocktail stations, share them with us!
We’ll start you out with an American Mule Bar. This effervescent ginger cocktail is one of our go-tos all year round since it’s a crowd pleaser, and so easy to tailor to a specific season or event by adjusting which garnishes you use!
