8B RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sunday, July 25, 1965 Mix - Serve Center Easy to Construct For a J successful party, nothing beats having your own refreshment counter. Time was when the host would spend much of the evening in the kitchen mixing a wide variety of drinks for a crowd assembled in another room. Now more hosts are finding they can fill their guests' orders more quickly and efficiently with a strategically located mixing and serving counter. An appropriate counter surfaced with tile can be purchased at various prices. Or it can be constructed by a do-it-yourselfer. Either way, it probably should be large enough to accommodate at least three stools. It should also include a hidden shelf on which the host can stock drinks mixed in advance, as well as glasses, ice, stirrers and an attractive cloth for cleaning up. It's a good idea to locate the counter near an electrical outlet so equipment such as a coffee pot or milk-shake mixer can be plugged in. Special attention should be given to the counter top. Rings left by glasses will leave a permanent impression on many surfaces. The way to avoid this is to cover your bar top with a material which is stainproof and also bum- proof, in case you're planning to serve hot dishes.
