Bartending Buddy

The multi-use cocktail bar mat from Talisman Designs makes it easier to up your drink-mixing game. The mat covers some bartending functions from prep to clean-up and a few steps in between, too. The mat is divided into two work zones to help set up drinks, then handle clean-up afterwards. A removable plastic cutting surface is for zesting and cutting, while a built-in rimmer gives drinks an extra-special finish (like sugar, salt, or cocoa). The rimmer can also serve as a storage spot for prepped garnishes. The mat’s second zone focuses on keeping bar duty clean. It’s made to corral spills and provide a drying spot for just-washed glasses. When happy hour is over, the BPA-free mat can go in the dishwasher, and then store flat until it’s time for the next round.

    Is the bar mat safe to go in the dish washer?

    Jennifer, thanks for asking that question. Yes! Our Barmat is dishwasher safe. You can remove the cutting mat and put both pieces in the dishwasher!

    Happy cocktail making!

    @Katherine The mat would be nice in a crème or ivory color.

    I see that the bar mat is made of rubber, is it latex free?

    Does it come in any additional colors?

    Hi Kat,

    The Barmat is a food-grade, FDA tested/approved rubber. It is indeed latex-free!

    Right now we only have this black Barmat. When we expand, what color would you like to see?

    Thank you for your interest!

    Thanks for the idea.

    I can visualize an entire cocktail setup on your tiki bar for mai tai or blue Hawaiian drinks!

    @Janna

    Janna,

    Open, the Barmat measures 18" across by 11.75" deep.

    And, closed (this is why I love it), the Barmat measures 9" across by 11.75" deep and only .5" thick!

    Easy to use and store.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hi Kathy,

    Yes, on the right hand side of the mat is a built-in cutting mat. I prep my garnishes right in the mat! Citrus, mint, basil! Whatever needs cutting for drinks!

    Also, the cutting mat is removable for ease of washing!

    All the best,

    Katherine
