Suggestions for 'a full bar'
I am hosting some visitors from China for dinner Saturday evening. I would like to have a "full bar" available for before dinner cocktails. I know my American guests will probably only drink wine.
A full bar at home* to me means, bourbon, scotch, vodka, and gin, maybe tequila and rum - possibly vermouth, in case anyone asked for a martini. For mixers, I would have Coke, Sprite, tonic, and soda. And garnishes would be lemons, limes, and olives. We will also have red and white wine.
Anything else I should include? Beer? (I'm not a beer drinker, so I often forget about it.)
We are in the south, I could offer mint juleps, although I am not fond of them, but it may be a treat for our foreign guests. What do you think?
*This isn't a cocktail lounge. Forget the Harvey Wallbangers, etc.
