The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode #138
After working behind the bar long enough, you find a few tips and tricks that help make your day easier. Here are the tools and hacks that Chris found over the years behind his bar.
A bunch of these tips are hints for buying better bar tools - but some are tricks for better ways to use the tools you already have!
Hacking the Bar In today's Episode...
Tools, Tools, Tools.
A carpenter doesn't use a cheap hammer. A plumber buys a quality wrench. So why wouldn't you do the same for the equipment you need to do your job? Watch and listen to hear all about:
- How to choose a great bar spoon, and why you might consider bending your brand new spoon before you put it to work.
- Which strainers you really need - and how to pick a good one. (Bonus: how to hack your hawthorne strainer for a better strain)
- How a cocktail straw can fix a slow store & pour
- Choosing the best peelers, wine keys, and more
Stuff we Mentioned:
We mentioned quite a few bar tools in this episode, and if you're in the market I can't help but recommend our own line of tools. (Find the full lineup here.)
Are we biased? Yeah, totally. But we're also really picky, and these tools have been designed based on Chris' years of frustrations behind the bar. (Plus, check out the reviews in Amazon - other folks like them too!)
