A home bar is not a new thing for people. We have seen in the majority of the homes especially in the USA, having a home bar with their choice of setup and drinks. People usually have tequilas, mixers, and many more such drinks with things like glassware and other things to have those drinks in. Having a bar at home sounds good but to keep it maintained and to stock it up with the required things is kind of a difficult task especially when your desired liquors or other stuff are short in supply or if there is some emergency situation in your country.
All of us know about the pandemic situation that is currently going on. In this situation, many things have become difficult for many people. Many businesses have closed causing problems for people to buy the necessary things that they want. We are here talking about the problems that people are facing in stocking up things in home bars during COVID-19. On normal days a person can throw parties for their friends to make the stocked drinks get consumed. People are having difficulties in purchasing things such as utensils or equipment to stock their liquors in. We are here to tell you the ways through which you can easily stock the bar at your home during this pandemic. Read them below.
Order cocktail kits online:
A phrase that is buy wine online is a must heard phrase by every wine lover during this pandemic .Why to just order a wine and not the whole kit? Cocktail kits are the main essential of a home bar. A cocktail kit includes things like beer, beer bottles, strainers, openers, shakers, and many more. Having a home bar but not a cocktail kit is a thing nobody can ever think of. Many bars and restaurants are opened and are delivering the drinks and the kits. All you need to do is search from them and place the order for your cocktail kits online.
Use the glasses already available:
Among the essentials of a home bar, glass is the main one. Many liquor lovers either they are your friends or family, judge you by the kind of glasses you have in your home bar. In a situation like Covid-19, if your glasses get broken so a big question arises: how would you be able to purchase it and from where. Easy solution is to use the already available glasses at your home and to make them look like the glasses used in a bar just style them with the help of the DIY available on the internet.
Make it small:
Bigger setups take more space and more things. In a situation where many products have gone out of stock including drinks, you should reorganize your home bar to make the setup small. This thing will result in decreasing the need for more things in the bar at your home.
Order drinks as per the availability:
The supply of any product stays normal when there is not an issue going in the country. But the moment an issue or an emergency situation occurs things start getting short because of panic buying done by people or because of the lack of supply by the companies. We have seen in the USA people fighting over things and all the racks of alcoholic drinks getting empty within 3 days. Search on the internet about the businesses that are delivering drinks in your area and also search for the types. In this pandemic situation, you cannot stock your home bar with your favorite drinks but with the ones that are currently available.
Use the home ice trays:
Ice is a very main thing to have in a bar. Just imagine having any drink that’s not cold. It would get stuck in your pharynx. There are special ice trays that are preferred in a bar. Stocking your home bar during COVID-19 and you get to know that you don’t have an ice tray available that is preferably used in a bar. Not a problem, use the ice trays normally used in your house. These normal use trays will affect the presentation of your drink but well something is better than nothing.

I know it always seems to be a good idea of people making a cocktail for you. But as all of us are self-quarantined so the most beneficial thing that you can learn is how to make an easy quarantine cocktail at home in your home bar that will satisfy your cocktail cravings in quarantine.
You might know some ways written above already but I know this would be helpful for the people who have a bar at their homes but are worried about stocking it up. Most numbers of Covid-19 cases are reported in the USA and because of that people are in homes and missing out on many things. You don’t have to miss having your favorite drink after following the ways mentioned above.
