Buy Plastic Martini Glasses - Why use glass!

Stocking mixers is like stocking your alcohol. It really depends on what you plan to serve. This list will prepare you for most any cocktail.

Sour mix can be powdered, bottled or in concentrate form. Bloody Mary mix is not necessary if you aren't making a lot of them. Pina Colada mix can be made yourself with pineapple juice and a cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez.

Garnish for cocktails drinks

Use fresh fruit for your garnishes. Again, it depends on what you plan to make, but this will prepare you for most cocktails. You can use your imagination and add fresh fruits, candies, sprinkles, or even tiny umbrellas to give your own personal touch to your creation. Buy Plastic Martini Glasses - Why use glass!
