Here are our top five ideas for outfitting a cart that looks as good as the cocktails you’ll serve up taste.

1. Keep It Simple

You don’t need to fill every inch of the cart with bottles—just focus on the essentials. You just need are a few quality spirits to make the classics, whatever else you love, a good set of cocktail tools, and some glassware. Buying less random pieces means you can spend that money on higher-quality spirits. If you extra bottles, choose the best-looking ones to display on your cart.

2. Look Local

Try to purchasing spirits from a small or local distillery that offers pretty packaging, as long as the liquors taste good! You may find that your new favorite whiskey is from right across town.

3. Use Accessories

Now is the time to play with color, pattern, and texture. Decor items like colorful straws or custom coasters can add a touch of your own taste while also being functional. Vintage bar accessories such as cocktail stirs or picks are also a charming addition.

4. Add Some Life

If there is a space that needs filled, fresh flowers or greenery are always a good idea. Add a small bouquet that complements your current decor or make room for a permanent plant. You can even consider growing an herb, such as rosemary, mint, or basil - those can be added to make fresh cocktails!

5. Use Your Books

Cocktail recipe books are a great way to decorate and can add a little color, or neutral pop, depending on your needs. You can use them as a base to elevate a particularly pretty bottle.
