This airplane-inspired cocktail shaker goes above and beyond the call of duty. The Dual-Fuel Cocktail Shaker ($100) features a nickel-plated stainless steel and brass body, with two slide-off wings that double as flasks. Now you can shake up your favorite libation and be immediately ready to carry it around with you, whether it's to liven up a party, an alcohol-unfriendly sporting event, or a too-long train commute. Cheers.
Hold your own drinking olympics with this Ice Luge ($24) from Urban Outfitters. Fill the mold up with water and pop it in the freezer. When the competitors arrive, just belt out the national anthem, bust out the drink luge, and start pouring.

This Absinthe Fountain ($400) is the closest you'll get to having a real European absinthe experience at home. Designed to let you serve the drink the way it was enjoyed by Van Gogh and Picasso, the fountain is handmade from mouth-blown glass and plated brass, holding the ice water that drips down from the four spigots, onto sugar cubes suspended over waiting glasses, creating the perfect milky, iridescent quality the drink is known for. Enjoy.
Get the classic martini shape without the tall, unstable glass with the InsideOut Martini Glass Set ($55). In addition to the added stability of the two included glasses, the design is visually interesting, and provides function as well: it helps to keep your drink cooler for longer, and its shorter design makes for easier storage. Cheers.
