Raising the Bar

It is either the hint of fall or my addiction to Mad Men that has got me really thinking about cocktails. I have been working on stocking up my bar and freshening it up with some new glasses and other fun items. Of course all of these items (pictured below) were vintage finds from a few different thrift shops around town. The gold bamboo tray was $24, the glasses were $22 for a set of 6 and the ice bucket was $30. I gave these new vintage glasses a test run this weekend, and can report that they did not disappoint. For a well stocked bar, Miles Redd has a great checklist here for all the essentials.

Here are some of my favorite images of bars:

  1. So fun! Have you tried a dark and stormy?

  2. Love your finds!!! That tray is the best -- Sleepy Poet??

  3. Yes! Tray is totally from Sleepy poet and so are the glasses. Ice bucket is from a crazy antique place in Myrtle Beach.

    Love me a Dark and Stormy but my new drink is firefly sweet tea with some lemon flavored seltzer. Am i getting old?
