HOW TO KEEP DRINKS COLD
Hosting friends in your Home Bar can come with a few challenges. One of the biggest ones is how to keep drinks cold without ice. Unless you live in a very cold country and can simply put all your wine and beers outside, it is likely that freezer space is limited. Big bags of ice use precious freezer space and bulky coolers take up the entire place leaving no room left to showcase your bartending skills.
Do you want to keep the drinks cold while friends are busy catching up? Let Coolenator do the magic with no stress cooling throughout the party.
Coolenator for home/outdoor bar is a perfectly designed cooling unit that looks amazing in every bar arrangement. Coolenator is not just about aesthetics but practicality too. The compact design of the Coolenator’s freezer bullet takes up minimum freezer space and actively cools for up to eight hours. Zero condensation on the outside keeps your bar clean without making any mess or wet circles on your table.
Keep it sustainable
Bartenders all over the world are becoming increasingly more environmentally conscious. Without even realizing it a home bar can have a lot of waste. Things like disposable straws, serviettes, coasters, water and energy. All these things add up. Make your Home Bar more sustainable and reduce the waste footprint with just a few simple changes.
Plastic straws are small and light and cause major problems for the wildlife and the environment alike. There are great alternatives out there like metal straws, recyclable paper straws, bamboo and silicone.
Everyone loves a pretty garnish to finish off your delicious home-made cocktail. Repurpose and reinvent your garnish by thinking outside the box. Did you just use fresh pineapple for your pina coladas? Use the pineapple instead of a glass. Same thing works for coconuts and melons. Looks great and adds a bit of flair. A sure way to impress.
Start growing your garnishes yourself! Many classic cocktail elements contain herbs that are easy to grow without taking up too much space. Planning on making a few jugs of mojito for your upcoming party? Your home grown mint will make them extra tasty! Reduce waste by dehydrating all your leftover ingredients. This increases the shelf-life and looks pretty darn good!
Save water and energy
Bags of ice are heavy, drippy and always come in disposable, one-use plastic bags which are often found everywhere but the rubbish. Coolenator’s are reusable for years. Made of recyclable and super insulating material allows Coolenator to offer sustainable cooling for hours without any additional energy source. No need for ice machines that use a lot of power. Coolenator’s freezer bullets cost on average 1 cent to charge in your freezer. Low maintenance and sustainable, what more could you ask for.
HOME BAR GIFTS
We all know someone who has their own Home Bar, at least I hope you do! Being prepared and well-stocked is an important aspect of being a good host. That is why bar gifts are one of the best gifts to give. Whether it’s for a housewarming party, father’s day or the grand opening of your friend’s Home Bar. A gift that adds to a home bar is always going to be welcome. The first thing people think of is their favorite bottle of booze (although you do need plenty of this). Giving a gift that will last and not end up in the glass bin will be a lot more memorable. Coolenator’s personalised wine coolers are a unique gift that are sure to be a mainstay of your Home Bar.
SIT BACK AND ENJOY
Once your home bar is stocked up and decorated to your liking, it’s time to sit back and enjoy a drink. Invite over friends and family for some company. You might even convince them to make you a drink so you can marvel at all the work you have put into your home bar.
