How to Frenchify Your Home Bar was requested a few times when I asked for suggestions. I have had it on the side for quite sometime because I didn’t know where to take it. Let’s be honest, I make a mean Campari Soda but I have yet to attempt a Martini (3 ingredient drink). I have little to no bartending skills. I cook, I bake, I wing it, but bartend? I will leave that to an expert. David Lebovitz wrote a whole book on Drinking French. I highly recommend you buy his book. If you aren’t sold yet, you can reference this post on How to Stock a French Bar.
When it comes to Frenchifying your Home Bar. Start with what you drink your cocktail, champagne or wine in. I rounded up a list below of French glass brands to shop in the US. Further down, you can find a list of online shops including a Chicago and French favorite.
I am often asked my favorite French wines to buy or bring to a party or picnic. I am slowly getting into Reds after thinking they were a migraine trigger. I really enjoy Jadot wines and you can find them pretty much everywhere. They have a good collection at Costco or your local wine shop.
