The old-fashioned is one of the most commonly made and consumed alcoholic beverages around, making double old-fashioned glasses an important part of a complete set of barware. Creating a well stocked bar means always having the tools necessary to make and serve whatever drinks guests might want. Work some of these glasses and utensils into the home wet bar to please and wow everyone who stops by.
Available for purchase with a set of double old-fashioned glasses is a decanter. Decanters are an elegant way to store and serve bourbon whiskey and other liquors. Along with the decanter, have a nice ice bucket with tongs so serving is easier. Since sugar is a necessary component of the old-fashioned, it's a good idea to have a filled sugar bowl and serving spoon handy at the bar, as well.
A teaspoon of water is all it takes to dissolve the sugar in the bottom of the glass. Instead of tap water, keep bottled water for this purpose. These items will also come in handy when serving other beverages. A complete set of barware should also include martini glasses, brandy snifters, highball glasses, cordial glasses and a nice selection of wine glasses.
Wine glasses are almost as varied as glasses for liquor. Having the correct size and shape of wine glass ensures the flavors, bouquets and tannins of the particular wine being served is fully and completely enjoyed. Look for sets that include glasses for Merlot, chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Cabernet and other common red and white wines. Wine glasses and double old-fashioned glasses should be stored in proud view at the wet bar.
