From the perfect lighting to the mouthwatering menu, every element contributes to creating magic for your customers. But hey, let’s not forget about the bar service! We’re here to make sure your drinks are as extraordinary as your cuisine. That’s why we take pride in providing a comprehensive range of products that can transform your bar into a destination for exceptional libations. From paper products to skewers, mixers to garnishes, we offer everything you need to elevate your beverage service to new heights. Let’s dive into the categories we provide and explore how What Chefs Want can be your go-to partner for all your bar service needs.

Mixers

Creating delicious and refreshing beverages requires a wide range of mixers, and we have you covered. Our inventory includes Island Oasis drink mixes in a variety of flavors, ginger beer for those spicy favorites, and a selection of bloody mary mixes to appease even the most discerning taste buds. Additionally, we offer an assortment of juices, kombucha, many different flavors of syrups, and purees to unleash your creativity and craft unique and irresistible concoctions.

Speaking of purees, we currently stock Perfect Purees in meyer lemon, pineapple, pomegranate, prickly pear and strawberry and if you are looking for some summer cocktail inspiration, you can check out some of their recipes here.

Garnishes

Don’t underestimate the power of the perfect garnish to enhance the flavors and presentation of your drinks. At What Chefs Want, we understand the importance of fresh and high-quality garnishes. That’s why we offer an array of options, including olives, cherries, and a selection of fresh produce. Edible flowers also add a delightful touch of beauty and elegance to cocktails, turning them into visually stunning and Instagram-worthy creations.

Skewers for Garnishes

Garnishes are the finishing touch that transforms a regular drink into a work of art. Our collection of skewers, made from bamboo and sugar cane, provides an elegant and eco-friendly way to present garnishes like fruits, olives, and more. Elevate your cocktails’ visual appeal and impress your patrons with these stylish and sustainable skewers.

Paper Products

While they aren’t as exciting as garnishes and mixers, no bar is complete without the essential paper products that keep things running smoothly. From high-quality napkins to sturdy straws, we offer a wide selection of paper goods that strike the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. With different sizes, colors, and materials available, you can find the perfect match for your establishment’s style and branding.

Summer Cocktail Inspiration

Ready to make one of the trendiest drinks of the Summer? This refreshing drink is built around St. Germain, giving it a light and invigorating flavor with hints of elderflower.
