As Winter continues to bring us the cold, gone are the days of rooftop bars and to actually go out and brave the cold, what's one to do when you need a drink? You are now at your peak laziest, but you and your friends still want to get their drink on. Best part of Netflix & Chill is being able to make a drink at home without the fight for the bartender and keeping prices relatively low. Sure it’s great when friends decide to bring some over to share with you, but you wouldn’t be caught dead serving a bud light to others. Some of the things you need for a well-stocked bar are really the basics to so you can entertain your friends and yourself with adult drinks. Like your men, your home bar should be diversified, rather than 4 bottles of flavored vodka here is a list of essentials that should be a part of every home bar.
