What is barware specifically and why can’t we simply join everything together to categorize as "utensils" or "glassware"? Barware includes all the essentials required for preparing and serving alcoholic beverages. The reason they are in a separate category from other kitchen utensils relies on the specific purposes most of these items serve for preparation. You don’t necessarily need a bar to require barware accessories; they can be stored in your kitchen cabinets and used whenever the time comes for preparing a drink.
By barware sets, the first thing that comes to mind is a cocktail assembly set since typically these items are the most common for the preparation of dozens of cocktails. Modern barware sets include but aren’t limited to: an ice bucket, jigger, tongs, bar spoon, cocktail shaker, cocktail strainer, juicer, bottle opener, corkscrew opener, and pourer. Of course, the prepared drinks must be served in something. This is why you’ll find wine glasses, beer jugs, martini glasses, shot glasses, and many more glassware items specifically designed for alcohol under the barware section of your local home and kitchen store. These are all the necessities for home bars and public bars alike to shake together the best cocktails.
However, barware can be expanded to items that can be multi-purpose as well. For example, pitchers and glasses can be used for non-alcoholic drinks and day-to-day drinking as well. There aren’t any rules as to how you can use your glassware in the comfort of your own home. A tamper is another item you may find under barware accessories that are used for coffee making and may make you wonder what it has to do with barware at all. Irish coffee is a popular alcoholic drink that involves finely ground espresso to make, therefore, you may even find mugs and items specific to coffee in barware sections as well.
All in all, when shopping, keep in mind that if you’re looking for items that can be utilized for mixology, then they most definitely can be found in the barware section.
