There are few things that impress me more. All you really need is some decent glassware, a couple of standard bar tools, and a deliberately chosen variety of spirits. It says to your guest: I like to entertain. I enjoy life. I know how to have fun. If I’m your guest it says to me: I care about my friends (at least enough to not make them drink out of a keg cup).
If you know Surdyk’s employees, we tend to know our way around a decent bar. We’re happy to help you plan your party- large or small. One of the most often asked questions at Surdyk’s is: “How much should I buy for my party?” Plan for at least 1.5 drinks per person, per hour and allow for a pound of ice for each guest (really!)
The Spring Spirits Sale is one of the best times of year to get your bar in shape- right before all of the great spring and early summer parties that are already filling up your calendar. I always keep a good supply of the classics (Gin, Bourbon, Vodka, Tequila, we all have our favorites!) and their partners (Cointreau, Bitters, Vermouth). I like keeping something on hand that can enhance a number of cocktails; Canton Ginger Liqueur is my favorite. Browse our catalog, pick your favorites. And stop in this week—the sale ends on April 7th! – Lindsey Coleman
