Well, the drink menu made it through one party safely! It seemed to work really well. I feel like my visitors had a much easier time making a drink choice (splitting the distracting spirits list out to a separate menu really helped, too).

I just made four new drink cards, and that went smoothly, too. The menu will be seeing a lot of action this month: four parties in three weeks! If I learn anything new from the upcoming parties, I'll let you know, but so far it seems like this design is a winner.

How's the menu working out 18 months later? Seriously considering doing something similar for my home bar.

It's been perfect! There's nothing I would do differently. It's easy enough to make new drink cards that I've kept up with it, I make new cards all the time, and now I have dozens of them. Super fast to set up for parties, easy for people to read and tell me what they want, and it has held up just great, the cards are sturdy and aren't showing any wear and tear.

Now my spirits list... that is a disaster. Keeping up with inventory is hard!

Excellent! I need to find someone who can carve up something for me then. We are going to use something like this for our specials.

Jeff Bannow, you need to contact Dave Hansen (aka, Lake Surfer on TC). He just carved a version of Humu's drink menu card holder and posted a pic on Facebook. It turned out mighty nice if you ask me.

Good news - he made it for me.

*BUMP*
I was thinking about this awesone idea today. Because I play home bartender SO infrequently, I don't remember ingredients and measurements. It would be cool to have the abbreviated drink recipes in large letters on the back of the modular drink cards so I could see them from behind the bar. Then I would look suave like I knew what i was doing without having to refer to a phone app or 3x5 cards
