Keep the party going away from the kitchen with the Waring Pro Cordless Wine Opener ($45). Featuring a rubberized body with brushed stainless accents, this portable cork popper packs a rechargeable NiMH battery pack, rechargeable base unit and removable foil cutter, and the capability to open 80 natural corks on one charge — or more than enough to get you and all your friends singing along to UB40's "Red, Red Wine."
You can't go wrong with concrete. These Concrete Tumblers ($40 set) mix a solid concrete base with a glass top, giving off a modern vibe that works as well for water as it does for martinis while providing an ultra-stable base for minimal spillage.
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.
Start your 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.
