Cointreau and Dita Von Teese Launch Summer Bar Cart Cocktail Program at Poolside Soiree

Let’s be honest, we are all drinking more these days. During the nearly year-long lockdown, the phrase it’s 5 o’clock somewhere has never rung more true. But the monotony of drinking at home can be broken. It’s easy to elevate the experience by adding a stylish bar cart to your decor.

The original bar carts popularized in the Victorian era were actually tea trolleys. They started being used for booze around the end of Prohibition, then really picked up in the 1950s when hosting was an art and cocktail hour was a daily occurrence. A throwback to sophisticated days past, bar carts bring a dash of Old Hollywood glamour to your place. And besides looking chic, they’re totally practical for keeping all your booze essentials organized.

Bar Cart

According to libation experts, every bar cart should have the following:

  • Tools: jigger, shaker, strainer, bottle opener, corkscrew, and ice bucket and tongs.
  • Basic boozes: vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and whiskey.
  • Extra-credit boozes: vermouth, St-Germain, Campari, and orange liqueur.
  • Mixers: juices, sodas, tonic water, and bitters.

Whether you are the Don Draper type or Carrie Bradshaw type, it’s easy to build the perfect bar cart. Whatever your style, check out these five carts, complete with accessories, each with a distinct vibe.
