bar accessories and tool essentials

What are the bar accessories that every bartender must have? Equip yourself with the most essential bar tools from Trendy Bartender. If you’ve been using a shaker as a mixing glass, a chopstick as a bar spoon, and a wooden spoon as a muddler, that’s okay – these kitchenwares would still do the work, but as a bartender that doesn’t seem very cool. Take your cocktail game to the next level by upgrading your barware – both for a higher quality of your cocktails, and the more chic image as a bartender you portray to your guests.
