Everyone is going crazy for Brandless, the online retailer launched last month by entrepreneurs Tina Sharkey and Ido Leffler that sells household essentials for a mere $3 apiece. You can shop for everything from cleaning supplies to beauty products to non-perishable pantry items, all without the hefty price tag that often comes with name-brand goods. Because we’re always looking for new ways to stock our home bar on a budget, we combed through Brandless to find the absolute best cocktail-making supplies. These essentials will help you make a myriad of drinks and will only set you back a few bucks each.
If you love a Pisco Sour but are a.) vegan or b.) nervous about contracting salmonella from raw egg whites, there’s another option: aquafaba. Made by whipping the liquid from a can of chickpeas, this veggie-friendly alternative has a slightly savory flavor and gives cocktails the same fluff and froth as egg whites.
We loved spiked milkshakes, and this affordable scoop is about to make our frosty cocktail dreams come true. Use it to dole out the perfect amount of ice cream for dessert drinks like the Fernet Float and the classic Mudslide.
