The indispensable tools and ingredients for your home bar

Follow Jay Khan’s advice to create a home bar with indispensable tools and ingredients to not lack anything.


  1. A tin on tin shaker.
  2. A bar spoon. Or any long spoon that serves to mix cocktails.
  3. A jigger meter. Or any small-sized measuring device.
  4. Ready-made ice in your fridge.
  5. Citrus press or manual juicer.
  6. Limes and lemons, always.
  7. Your favorite bottle of rum, tequila, gin, bourbon, scotch or vodka.
  8. A bottle of Cointreau, without an orange liqueur you will pass by many classics like the Margarita.
  9. Angostura bitters.
  10. A simple homemade syrup. Learn how to make one with two parts sugar and one part hot water. Mix until they dissolve.
