Sometimes the original is the best. Only modestly updated since it's debut, the Waring Professional Bar Blender ($95) is a true classic, with workhorse sensibilities. Available in stainless steel or bright copper, the Waring features a 40-oz. glass mixing jar, a powerful 390-watt motor, high and low speeds, a center cap that doubles as a 1-oz measure, and a heavy-duty build that will keep it running for years to come.
Enjoy the perfect pint with the Samuel Adams Boston Lager Glass ($30/set of 4 glasses). Designed with the help of sensory experts, the pint glass provides optimum full-flavored taste of Sam Adams (or any other brew) thanks to some unique features — a bead inside the rim creates turbulence to release flavor and aromas; a lip on the glass places the beer on the front of the tongue where sweetness is tasted; a laser etching on the bottom creates bubbles for constant aroma release; thinner walls and round shape maintain proper beer temperature longer; and a narrow grip reduces exposure from the heat of your hand.
There are few sneakers out there versatile enough to transition seamlessly from work to play. Enter Koio. Constructed using the finest Italian Vitello calf leather and made by hand in Italy, Koio's Capri low-top sneakers look as good paired with summer business attire as they do with a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. All Koio shoes are crafted for comfort, lined with soft Italian calf leather, and the Capris are no exception. Constructed with lightweight, durable outsoles, these great-looking low-tops are now available in several new, limited-edition colors for spring.

recovery morning off right with Demitri's Bloody Mary Seasoning ($33). This three-pack of award-winning mixes includes classic, chilies and peppers, and extra horseradish varieties, to which you only need to add vodka and tomato juice. Great for an afternoon pick-me-up for a relaxing day, or for helping wash down the shame of a hard night.
Forget those easily-breakable shot glasses you see in tourist shops around the world — if you're ready to do some real drinking, grab yourself a BigShot ($55). Made from solid 2-inch diameter 303 stainless steel bar stock, these manly glasses hold 3 oz. of hooch and weigh an even-manlier 7.5 oz. With a brushed finish and rifled knurls for better grip, it's the last shot glass you'll ever need. [Thanks, Scott]
