By using exact quantum Monte Carlo methods we calculate the ground-state properties of the liquid phase in one-dimensional Bose mixtures with contact interactions. We find that the liquid state can be formed if the ratio of coupling strengths between interspecies attractive and intraspecies repulsive interactions exceeds a critical value. As a function of this ratio we determine the density where the energy per particle has a minimum and the one where the compressibility diverges, thereby identifying the equilibrium density and the spinodal point in the phase diagram of the homogeneous liquid. Furthermore, in the stable liquid state, we calculate the chemical potential, the speed of sound, as well as structural and coherence properties, such as the pair correlation function, the static structure factor, and the one-body density matrix, thus providing a detailed description of the bulk region in self-bound droplets.
