Home Inspo: Bar Carts

I keep seeing bar carts everywhere lately! (They're definitely having a moment right now). Until I find the perfect one on Etsy which I plan to keep stocked with Brighton
Gin at all times, some cool glasses and maybe a spot of greenery from this shop, I've been flicking through a handy book called The Art of the Bar Cart for inspiration. It shows you 20 different bar set ups depending on what tipple floats your boat, each one complete with styling tips and cocktail recipes: Here are five favourites:

Above: 1. The Whimsical Cart

Think statement accessories, nostalgic glassware and intriguingly named cocktails. Smoking Pineapple, anyone?

2. The Holiday Cart

Think rich colours, metallic sparkle and warm, luxurious ingredients like champagne and cherry liqueur. Candy Cane anyone?

3. The After-Eight Cart

Think impromptu after-dinner sweet dessert cocktails featuring plenty of fruity, spicy liqueurs. Citrus Russian, anyone?

4. The Rum Cart

Think breezy tropical palms, whimsical glasses and plenty of exotic flavours. Minty Mojito, anyone?

5. The Sideboard Cart

Think homemade bar cart using furniture and booze you already have. Good old gin, anyone?
