Big advocates of the Boston-shaker, we love this weighted, stainless steel cocktail machine.
Some glasses were certainly made to be stirred. While you can use a cocktail shaker to mix a drink in a pitch, this etched mixing glass is made to create martini's, manhattans and other classics.
While using a shot glass can get the job done, a jigger is the tool of a pro. This one is particularly useful behind the bar. The narrow shape ensures a more accurate pour, while markings etched on the inside allow you to pour in increments of 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz, 1 oz, and 2 oz.
A metal straw and a cold drink just works. Metal straws are shiny and sleek, giving a high-ball a little extra class.
A must have in the bar, use this to strain your drink into the glass. It'll do just as well as a Martini shaker's strainer, but will be much easier to clean and there's no need to worry about the top getting stuck
