The Super Bowl, NCAA March Madness, and the World Series all have one thing in common: They are a great
excuse, er, reason to host a get together. Sports events of all kinds are a great time to try out a new game day drink (or two), and this round-up with give you plenty of ideas. Whether your main ingredient preference is vodka or rum, tequila or wine, there is always a concoction waiting to be shaken… Or stirred. Our home bar is stocked with all that I need to host a great party, including a great mixology set that has easily met all of our needs.
This Best Choice Products 16-piece Stainless Steel Bartender Mixology Set is a great beginner’s set for anyone looking to create your own drinks and practice mixology. With 16 unique pieces in the set, it has everything you need to make your own creations or follow a new recipe. The stainless steel set is durable and classy, and stores easily. It includes an ice bucket with tongs, muddler, shaker with lid, bottle opener, corkscrew, stirrer, 4 wine stoppers, wire spoon, jigger and 4 pourers. The set comes ready to use upon receiving and washes up well.

Or, if you’re like me and you don’t even own a blender (that’s normal, right?) then Amazon can easily come to your rescue. There are cheaper options like the Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher. There are also upgradable such as the reputable Ninja Professional Blender.

Mason jar glasses are a cool way to serve party drinks, or you could even get a mason jar pitcher.
