The drinks trolley

drinks trolley- 001-2

We found this beautiful drinks trolley in a dusty auction house a few months ago. I’d been looking for one for a while and this one was really special. I fell for the details, and the cute wheels.

However, it was very rusty and squeaky in places. To get rid of the rust we used good old Handy Andy and a scourer. To get rid of the extremely squeaky wheels we used Q20.

Now it’s fancy and shiny and fully stocked! (Here is a very cute article on how to stock your bar cart.)

I’m planning to do a series of some of my favourite summer drinks, all inspired by the drinks trolley.

Any requests? : )

    The funny thing about this drinks trolley is I have a drinks cabinet in my room and It has the exact same drinks except for the Jager. Good taste!!!
