If you're over 21 (and love a good glass of whiskey) this post is for you! I am so excited to share with you my favorite mid-century glassware, and some great wine and whiskey. Adding a bar cart to your space instantly adds a homey and welcoming vibe. I always know I am ready to entertain, or just chill and sip.
The bottom shelf has a lot of fun little surprises..
Ginger beer. A common theme in all of my favorite drinks is ginger beer, makes sense for me to have some on hand.
Cards Against Humanity. Such a fun game with a few drunk friends.
A shaker for your mixed drinks.
Extra wine bottle of Lazy Bones, just in case.
Cookies. Amaretti Virginia cookies, because I'm a believer in having cookies with your whiskey. Because...because why not?
Last but not least, a couple of fiercely beautiful gold wine glasses from Anthropologie.
A cocktail book is always a good idea. I think it adds an extra interesting touch. I picked up this beauty here, from Anthropologie. I chose this book for my bar cart read primarily because I love that it's not only a cocktail recipe book, it tells you about the origin and history of each drink. It also explains why certain liquor are paired together. It's a great read for people thirsty for alcohol knowledge.. heh, see what I did there?
I was first intrigued by the title, "The Curious Bartender" because it just seems like a perfect way to describe my recent interest in testing out different cocktail mixes.
Currently head over heels for these wine glasses. These are my latest addition to the bar cart family. They have a beautiful gold touch at the bottom that adds such a stunning glow when the light hits. They have the perfect weight to them, not too heavy but just enough to feel the quality. I just got them so I can't wait for the first pour.

Ok. Hey Dalwhinnie. I like you. I found out about this scotch, weirdly enough, on Youtube. I fell down this spiral whole of whiskey reviews and came across a channel called Ralphy Stuff. Ralphy is this awesome 60 something Scottish guy who reviews all different types of whiskey. When Ralphy reviewed Dalwhinnie he said, "If someone offers you this, you know they like you". This scotch is super gentle and has underlying taste of honey which I love.

If you'd like to feel like Queen Victoria in the 18th century, I would recommend some beautiful mid-century scotch glasses. I found these beauties from an Etsy shop called "For My Tribe," a cute collection of vintage and up-cycled goods. This picture doesn't even do justice to the beautiful gold and green pattern. These are my all time favorite addition to my barware collection.
