Ready to take your bartending to the next level? Fee Brothers Bitters ($60) can help. This six-bottle set includes six hard-to-find, hand selected cocktail bitters, including Cherry, Celery, Grapefruit, Peach, Aztec Chocolate, and Old Fashioned — allowing you to expand your mixology horizons beyond the ol' Jack and Coke.
Who said all glasses has to sit straight up? This Normann Copenhagen Swirling Cognac Glass ($65/Set of 2) is designed to enhance the experience of sipping on your favorite cognac by encouraging the swirling of the liquid, helping to release the aromas and highlight the spirit's deep color. They come packed in a gift box, so if you're thinking of buying a set of someone else, you're covered — but if it was us, we'd make sure to order an extra for yourself.
Complete your southern-themed bar experience with the Mason Shaker ($30). As the name suggests, this fully-functional cocktail shaker is based around the ubiquitous Mason Jar, adding a three-piece solution — strainer, outer rim, and cap — to the top, elevating the classic southern drinking vessel from something you use to hold your drink to something you use to make it.
Hide away the necessaries for your little drinking habit in the Vintage Light Bulb Voltage Tester Bar ($2,000). This clever, stylish piece holds everything you need to keep the party going, or just take the edge off a long day. Based off of a 1920s German light bulb voltage tester discovered in a factory, this bar is made from iron, and antiqued to a patina finish. The bar opens to reveal three shelves, three stemware racks, and five wine bottle slots. An iron tripod supports the bar, and a small door at the front opens so you can check on your supply.
A bottle stopper is great for keeping wine fresh and tasty longer — and a bottle stopper with a built in beer-bottle opener is even better (especially if you're double fisting). The Bottlejak ($42) combines both of these useful tools into one well-designed piece. The stopper is made from stainless steel, and has custom-molded silicone o-rings with a triangular flange to better fit a range of bottles. The body is made from aluminum, and has a "top down" design that lends a low profile. The sloped base doubles as a bottle opener and lets it rest on a counter when you don't need it.
