Life’s too short to not find reasons to celebrate the little things. Whether that’s dressing up and going out to dinner after handing in a big project, spending a Saturday in bed with a loved one and your pets just because, or toasting to the end of the work-week, it’s important to seize small victories in today’s fast-paced world. Pair that with the trend towards hand-crafted and artisanal, and you have Owl’s Brew — a line of premium teas crafted for cocktails (or mocktails!). An effortless alternative to complicated cocktails that most of us can’t be bothered with, their mixes are intended to be an at-home entertainer’s dream. But the tea is only half of the equation for a perfect dinner party. The other half? A fully-loaded bar or bar cart.
Just like designing your home, a stylish and stocked at-home bar starts with a good plan — and Jennie Ripps and Maria Littlefield, the founders of Owl’s Brew, are pretty much the closest you can get to being masters of that plan. Sharing everything you ever wanted to know about crafting the perfect at-home bar, they’re sharing their recipes for creating a fun bar, from glassware and accessories to mixers and booze. –Sabrina
