Cocktails, beer, wine or all?
When at a bar do you have your signature cocktail or do you love to try everything on the menu? The beauty of at-home DIY cocktails is that you can have as many different combinations as you want, your way with a mix of whatever you fancy.
Cocktails bring colour, vibrancy and this element of fun to the night, so let’s help you bring this theme to your garden!
Where to start? Think about your favourite bar, either from a holiday or your go-to on a saturday night, as this is the vision we are going to help you create. Introduce a structure like a wooden gazebo centre stage where you can add some colourful lighting, high bar stools and more! Alternatively, you may prefer a more cosier affair in which case you can use a log cabin as the foundation to your garden bar. With a log cabin you can use it all year round no matter what the weather.
