Besides, having a well-curated bar cart is a sign of some serious adulting and who doesn't want to give off grown ass woman vibes? Below you will find our list of bar cart essentials:

Vodka: I mean duh! Vodka is a versatile option that will keep the drinks flowing. Make your own signature cocktails with your favorite juices and fruits. Drinks you'll make: The Diddy, Vodka Soda.

Bitters: There are two bitters that you must have on hand at all times: Angostura and Peychaud's. You can make an abundance of cocktail recipes or freestyle your own with these two! We can't forget apertif style bitters like Negroni and Aperol which are perfect for before dinner drinks as they prep your stomach for food. Drinks you will make: Monte Carlo, Aperol Spritz.
White Rum: White rums are distilled multiple times and then made with fine molasses. It is the ultimate Summer mixer for your favorite rooftop situation. Drinks you will make: Mojitos, Mai Tai.
Dark Rum: Aged a little longer than white rum, dark rum pairs well with the vanilla/cinnamon/spice based drinks. Also perfect for the classic Rum and Coke. Drinks You Will Make: Brown Derby, Dark & Stormy.
