There is of course no ‘initial fix’ to a fully stocked bar. It is an ongoing process requiring the addition of certain liquors etc. at a time when there becomes a demand for them.

Most or all of the ingredients below are considered essential bar-stock, and should act only as a foundation to a well stocked bar.

Keep in mind, some of these can be skipped if you or your ‘patrons’ (Read: drinkking buddies) don’t like them. But it’s always fun to have some room to experiment.
