You know all those cocktail shakers we've told you about? Yeah, you shouldn't have bought any of those. Our bad. The Rösle Boston Shaker ($47) is our new favorite. Instead of the sometimes-leaky shakers that you can't see inside or measure easily, this one comes with a glass tumbler that's marked with measurements, letting you free-pour your ingredients like a pro bartender.
Gorgeous. Striking. These are just a couple of ways to describe the Ambassador Liqueur Decanter ($435), one of the most unique decanters we've seen. The Ambassador was designed in 1925, and is made in Austria from an extremely thin-walled crystal called "muslin" crystal. This rare crystal is produced by only a handful of glass houses, and is used to create the thinnest possible surface between the liquid and the drinker's mouth. The decanter's slender, vertical form only adds to its great looks, making it a stunning piece for your den, office, or bar.
Drinking from the bottle has never been as classy, thanks to these Beer Bottle Goblets ($25/2-pack). Made from reclaimed Grolsch, Sol, or Corona bottles, glass artisans cut away the bottles' bottoms, and reuse them, bonding them to the bottles' former tops to create a robust foot. The result is a surprisingly stylish set of glasses that remind you just what it is you're drinking.
Created in honor of the 50th anniversary of Riedel's workshop in Tyrol, Austria, the Riedel Tyrol Wine Decanter ($160) is not your ordinary piece of glass. It's designed to appear as if it's resting on its side, and it chimes perfectly with the company's Tyrol glasses. Functional and classy, it makes a great centerpiece for your wine cabinet or bar.
It's time you stopped pouring out your leftover wine. The world's first decanter with vacuum sealing, the Metrokane V1 ($74) will keep your favorite bottle fresh until the next pouring. The 52-ounce handblown crystal decanter comes with a vacuum stopper and an easy to use hand pump for saving the good stuff.
