20 Essentials to Stock your Bar

Last week I shared How We Created the Coolest Bar in Texas.  I “interviewed” Sweet Shark and asked him what he considered the essential items needed for properly stocking a bar. So if you’re attending a “Stocking the Bar” Shower anytime soon or just want to know what you should have in your home bar for entertaining, have a seat and join Sweet Shark and me for a little bar hop.
