#StayAtHome: Home Bar Essentials

Sneaky. If there’s one word we could think of to perfectly describe 2020 - that’s the best word we can think of. We all had to adjust to so many unforeseen changes and life, as we know it, has been changed for good.

Even with the holidays fast approaching, the call to stay at home is still as loud as it gets. And when you do think about it - staying in does not have to be boring or repetitive. Why not make it a tad bit more fun? We’ve got just the idea. Setting up (and making the most out of!) your very own home bar, perhaps?

Here are some essentials to get you started.


Because it has a clean and transparent flavor, Vodka is used for more cocktails than any other distilled spirit you can think of. There’s just so much to choose from: you can go for something that’s affordable or a bottle that’s on the pricier side. It’s really up to you!

We recommend trying either Absolut or Grey Goose Vodka.

A Gin...or Maybe Three

While gin is considered an acquired taste, you gotta admit that a bar ain't a bar without it. Much less a home bar that doesn’t have a bottle of gin...or three.

Our top picks for this category are the following: Suntory Roku Gin, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Beefeater Gin, Tanqueray Gin, Nordes Gin, and London No. 1 Blue Gin.

Tequila for yo’ Margarita

Known as somewhat a life-giver to every party, Tequila has gotten some new-found glory in the modern bar as we know it. If you’re a fan of margaritas and most other fascinating tequila cocktails, make sure to have a few bottles right at your disposal.

Some of our go-to when it comes to tequila are: Jose Cuervo, Patron, 1800, and Olmeca.

Whisk(e)y Wisely

The thing about whisk(e)y is that each one is so distinct and so different that you gotta be smart with which ones you store. For this particular category, it would be best to figure out what you want and then choose from there.

As for us, here are some of our top recommendations: Jameson, Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniel’s, Dewar’s, Chivas, The Sexton, and Shackleton.


What if you aren’t exactly in the mood for some mixing? You just wanna chill and drink? That’s when the beer comes in handy.

Our top picks: San Miguel and Heineken.

The best part? You can get these drinks delivered straight to your doorstep in just a few clicks - through Boozy, of course!

When everything’s over, invite us over for a taste test, maybe?

Drink responsibly.
