Bar measurements mostly equate to small increments and don't include our usual cooking measurements like teaspoons, tablespoons and cups.

Many drink recipes refer to quantities in "parts". This simply means to use equal measures (parts) of each ingredient. As an example, lets say our "part" is ounces. In this case if the recipe calls for 1 part Tequila, that would be 1 ounce. If it calls for 2 parts lime juice, that would be 2 ounces of lime juice. Your "part" may also be a "jigger" for example.

Setting up your home bar does not require a lot of specialized equipment but there are a few must-have tools.
There are countless other gadgets, lemon juicers, zesters, graters and so on. The best place to find all these fun tools is a large Liquor store. If you happen to have a Bevmo in your area, they are a great source. If not, you can also purchase online.
