1. Serve in style

Take your gin and tonic party to the next level and invest in a bar cart! It’s ideal for when you have guests as you can store any accompaniments, mixers and bottles of gin in the bottom, whilst still showcasing your beautiful glasses on top. It’s a great investment and will take any post-lockdown gathering to the next level. Buy the Luxe Round Bamboo Gold Bar Cart from Oliver Bonas here.
