Our Favorite Bar Essentials

We love a seasonal beverage at McAlister-Leftwich House, and while it’s still too warm to layer up in Greensboro, NC, these drinks bring our favorite tastes of fall. Our fall “Leftwich” (aka “his”) pick from Clay was this yummy (and beautiful) Bourbon Apple Cider. Our fall “McAlister” (aka “hers”) pick I chose was a refreshing Pomegranate Gin & Tonic. Both recipes can be found in previous posts linked here and here.

Since McAlister-Leftwich House began offering bar services in-house, Clay and I have really enjoyed experimenting with various drinks and recipes. I mentioned before Clay has quite the extensive bourbon collection, and it has been creative for me to play around with ways I can drink it (because I can only drink it neat every so often!).

With our growing love for serving creative and exciting drinks for friends and family as well as at McAlister-Leftwich House, our ball tool collection has grown. Our most recent Behind the Bar posts featured some of our favorites that we use weekly at our home and at the venue. We know many of you are also interested in growing your tool kit for hosting, so we rounded up some of our favorite bar accessories that are similar to the ones we love! These pieces are super functional for both creating and serving your fall cocktails, but they are also beautiful and help usher in the season with warm wood tones and rich copper and gold accents.

If you create the Bourbon Apple Cider or Pomegranate Gin & Tonic or create your own cocktails using some of these fun bar accessories, please tag us on Instagram!

Cheers & happy sipping!
