Everyone likes to serve good drinks when friends or family come over for a party, and the best way to do that, is to start by purchasing the right ingredients—fresh fruits and garnishes, and good liquor (spending a bit more here will pay off in better-tasting cocktails down the road). Good home bartenders also need the right tools to churn out great drinks. Here are three suggestions that will help make your next party a roaring success.

Blender

For crushed ice, great margaritas, frozen daiquiris, or non-alcoholic fruit smoothies, a good blender is a must. This model generates 1000 watts of power and the six-blade assembly crushes ice faster and blends ingredients smoother than other models. A hefty 72-ounce blender jar also allows you to mix up a big batch of cocktails in seconds.
