Get In The Holiday Spirit

The holidays are synonymous with celebrations and parties. When planning for parties, many people only focus on what they are going to serve to eat rather than thinking about what they are going to serve to drink. At K&N Sales, we've decided to change that, so lets add more spirit to your holiday gathering by create a home bar right in the ease of your own kitchen.

Creating a Home Bar

The ideal spot in your kitchen for your new home bar would be counter space with ample area either under the counter or next to it. When it comes to serving drinks, you always want to make sure you have enough ice. Even if you have an ice maker in your freezer, it may not be enough when guests come to call. A way to make sure you always have ice is a Scotsman Ice Machine. These handy little machines fit right under the countertop and they have ice ready whenever you need it.

Another home bar essential is a wine fridge. As you may know from our blog post on wine storage, wine fridges can range from fairly inexpensive to an investment appliance. When doing your research, make sure you keep in mind how many bottles currently have and double it. Also make sure that there are stabilizing features so the rattling of the compressor doesnt ruin your wine.

When youre making drinks for a large group of people, youll want all of your drink ingredients within arms reach. A way to keep everything close is a drink fridge. This small refrigerator can hold drink mixers and ingredients like soft drinks, tonic water, juices, etc. If you have cabinets above your new home bar, stock them with fun cocktail glasses like Martini glasses, or stemless wine glasses.

Put The Happy in Happy Holidays

In honor of completing your bar, weve found some festive drink recipes to try out at your next party. For those cold nights we have in Houston (you know those 3 days we have every winter), we found a hot caramel buttered rum recipe from Liquor.com. This drink will warm up any party. Have last minute guests and dont want to serve just wine? Try Liquor.coms Last Minute Mulled Wine. All you have to do is let the ingredients simmer for 10 minutes and youre ready to serve!

Hosting a holiday brunch for friends or family? Southern Living has a compiled a slideshow of festive brunch drinks. The one we want to try? Either the Hot Chocolate with Almond Liqueur or Rudolphs Tipsy Spritzer. If your brunch is more of a family friendly affair, Rudolphs Spritzer will be a hit even without the vodka.
