We recently asked fellow blogger Myles Henry to share his in-house cocktail setup—annexed from a corner of his Brooklyn galley kitchen and featuring his trademark mix of "clean/minimal and industrial/rustic"—with Remodelista. Recreate the look with the elements shown below.

N.B. In other news, we're looking forward to Henry's upcoming show at the HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles, opening March 12. "My blog will basically come to life; I'll be taking over the space and decorating it as if it were a home. Everything in the space will be for sale, including furniture, home accessories, clothing, and some original Myles Henry product."

Above: Henry found the vintage bread-making cabinet, which functions as kitchen counter and storage space, at a flea market. The KitchenAid Artisan Five-Quart Stand Mixer in imperial gray is $255.84 at Amazon.

Here's a template (including recipe) for creating an urban cocktail setup in your own space:

Fill a highball glass with 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
Muddle mint (about 10 leaves) with a couple of small pieces of fresh ginger
Add 2 oz. Hendricks Gin
Fill glass with ice and pour ginger beer over the top
Garnish with a wedge of lime

Above: The Top Class 12.25 Ounce High Ball Glass by Luigi Bormioli is $4.99 at Bloomingdale's.
