Whether your patrons enjoy classic cocktails, exotic beverages or an assortment of liquor straight up, you’ll need a collection of bar supplies to keep the drinks flowing. Knowing key industry terminology will enable you to order the proper bar tools and equipment from restaurant supply vendors or manufacturers. Having bar equipment like bar spoons, speed rails and muddler on hand will allow your mixologists to blend new, beloved and custom drinks to keep your clients refreshed and satisfied.
Shorten the amount of time it takes your bartenders or kitchen staff to do preparation work before a shift by ordering a wedging machine, also called a wedger. The manual tool cuts fruits or vegetables into slices to use as garnishes or to add flavor to sangrias or shots.
Allow your bartenders to better organize their work area and create drinks with more speed, precision and showmanship by installing speed rails to hold bottles of liquor and mixers. The safety shelves secure bottles, enabling bartenders to grab what they need quickly without accidents.
Resembling a flat lid, a glass rimmer holds condiments like salt, sugar or cocoa powder. The convenient design allows bartenders to dip moistened cocktail glasses into the condiments to create flavorful rimmed drinks with less mess or waste.
To make popular cocktails like Mojitos, Caipirinha or flavored vodkas, a muddler presses and bruises slices of fruit or herb leaves at the bottom of the glass. The tool allows bartenders to release the fruit's juices or essential oils for the best flavor without bitterness.
Master mixologists will appreciate a selection of bar spoons to reach into tall cocktail glasses or jars of drink garnishes. The swirled handle is ideal for stirring drinks without breaking up the ice, while the back of the spoon makes the perfect pouring surface to help layer pretty drinks.
Bartenders just starting out or intent on getting the perfect measurements before they learn how to speed pour will appreciate a selection of jiggers. The stainless steel tools feature a cup on each side with measurements like one or one-and-a-half ounces to ensure the proper pour.
