After the accessories, let us move on to liquor now. Considering it is your house and you will consume most of the liquor, so most of the times you should your personal favorites. And then worry about the rest!  I am a straight-up scotch man, but what if I have a friend who loves margarita, comes home on weekend? In order to avoid such situations always have the things to make the basics.
So, here are the few things you can store just in case there is some guest who doesn’t like drinking scotch.

  • Tequila This is ultimate shooter, which requires unless you decide to do a Training wheels. Training wheel for a shot means some salt and lime wedges. 
  • Scotch: - Here is my favorite part, Just stuff your place allocated for scotch with Black Dog “One of the world’s finest Scotch Whisky”
  • The Mixers and Garnishes: - Even if we spend lots of money on liquors, we need to have perfect mixers to make a drink taste great.
  • Juice The basic one would need is juice, maybe Orange, Cranberry. If you are creative maybe some Pineapple, Mango or even tomato should do.
  • Soda: - If you prefer don’t prefer soft drinks then, Soda and Tonic water are a must for many classics.
  • Lime: - Lots of drinks should be served with a twist of Lime wedges on the rim of the glasses.
  • Kosher salt This is the coarse-grained salt that the rim of the glass is dipped into.
  • Sugar: - Even strong drinks sometimes need a small helping of it.
