Tips For Eco-Friendly Home Bar
Sustainable Mixes to Elevate Your Home Bar
Let's keep things simple and toast to something fantastic – the perfect blend of flavours, one cocktail glass at a time. That's where the party menu magic begins. Meet your new companions for crafting incredible bar drinks at your home bar: Ketel One Vodka and The Singleton of Glendullan Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
These aren't just your regular spirits; they are all about more than taste. The best part? These bar drinks are focused on being kind to the environment, too. So, when you savour these skillfully crafted drinks, you are savouring the flavour and spreading a little eco-friendly love in a beautiful bar decor.
1. Picking Up From the Locals
Mixologists can always think of adding locally sourced magic to your beverages. Enjoy a mini-vacation by incorporating fresh herbs and fruits harvested from your garden or local markets, infusing your cocktails with the natural splendour of flavour pairings.
2. Garnishing Ideas with a Twist
We wish our food is aesthetically appealing every time, isn’t it? The same goes for our drinks: using different kinds of cocktail glassware, herbs, or ice cubes can make them look Instagram-worthy. Reusable alternatives like bamboo skewers and stainless steel straws can enhance the aesthetics of your drink. Additionally, edible flowers delight the eye and the palate, enhancing the experience.
3. Vintage Vibes with Sustainable Sips
Classic is timeless; hence, upcycling has become the mantra of the new era. It is all about using the old products in a new way. The vintage cocktail glassware looks pleasing to the eyes. Recalls bygone eras. Talk about fashion with some historical context! The coasters, too? How about beautiful handiwork produced from recycled wood or even eco-friendly materials? It's like your local pub celebrating appreciation of its environment.
4. Reduce the Ice Intake
The next significant step is reconsidering how ice is used during cocktail-making. The less ice you use, the less influence you will have on the environment because making ice requires water and electricity. The only issue is that some drink concoctions require ice to be cooled. Thus, you must consider making some concessions. For instance, having a complex frozen margarita machine at the bar is not good for the environment. Additionally, you can reduce the amount of ice used to make the drink (although this won't affect the final product).
How to Make Your Bar Sustainable?
- Utilise the proper equipment, processes, and personnel training to be productive with the available time and stock.
- Use the appropriate tools to guarantee that you and your team produce a responsible service.
- Prepare big batches of brunch cocktails ahead of time to reduce waste and preparation time.
- Avoid using single-use products like plastic straws and bottled water.
- Spread ingredients among numerous servings to reduce waste, such as using the juice from the remaining fruit from the garnished lemon wheel.
