I’ve always loved the idea of having a mini bar in our home for entertaining (I envisioned something like these) but our tiny apartment just doesn’t have the space to accommodate it. Some day!
In the mean time, I thought it might be fun to create an especially mini-mini bar. Ours sits on the corner of our breakfast bar, so it’s perfectly positioned to create the drinks and then deliver them as well. It’s not particularly stylized, but I love that it’s functional and decorative at the same time.
In order to capitalize on our small space, I decided to include the ingredients for just two of our favorite beverages– an Old Fashioned, and a modified Lemon Drop. Of course, the fruit and ice is in the fridge, but everything else necessary is right there, ready to go. I also included our wine and beer bottle openers so that they’re easy to access as well.
Are you a fruity cocktail kinda gal, or more into a classic Old Fashioned? I’m still looking for my go-to drink of choice, but I think I may be onto something with the Cosmo…
