Sorry if this is a dumb thread to some but I'm newcomer when it comes to cocktails(and spirits for that matter). Right now, I'm trying to put togeter a inventory so that I can make an array of cocktails, but I am a little confused what the general brands used for cocktails. I dont want to be buying the lowest end stuff, but at the same time I don't want to be buying spirits that are meant more so for sipping. All in all, I want the taste to be taken in respect to price. I was wondering what alcohol you guys use when you serve up cocktails? Should I imitate what the well liquor is for most bars?
Any insight would be great.
