W & P Shaken Cocktail Set | $39.99

But what’s the good of having garnishes if you don’t have the proper tools to mix a drink? That’s where the cocktail set comes in. This shiny stainless steel set includes a Boston shaker, strainer, jigger and ice tray with lid. These are absolute essentials needed for your bar set. The ice cube tray is BPA free and everything mentioned is dishwasher safe! best bartender tools

Crafthouse by Fortessa Bar Spoon | $11.96

As a former bartender, I cannot tell you how important this seemingly simple item is to have. A bar spoon is ideal for stirring drinks (i.e. old fashioned’s) and helps you create layered cocktails by pouring liquids along the spiral. The flat top can also be used for micro muddling. best bartender tools

Crafthouse by Fortessa Cocktail Smoking Box | $159.96

I am one who has always appreciated a nice whiskey and the smell of a good cigar. Now imagine being able to infuse a rich smoke flavor into a bold-spirited cocktail. This product includes a smoking gun with two trial-size wood chip flavors (hickory and apple). It’s comprised of a stainless-steel frame and walnut base, a perfect match with the Fortessa Bar Tool Set. And this product doesn’t just for cocktails; it works for food as well! best bartender tools

W & P Walnut Muddler | $14.99

A muddler is another item that your bar cannot do without. It’s the go-to tool for muddling ingredients needed when making mojitos, mint juleps, old-fashioned’s and other refreshing cocktails. Muddling helps release the fruits’ natural juices and oils for maximum flavor. And what sets this muddler apart from the rest is its smooth walnut wood, which prevents scratching on glassware and shakers. best bartender tools

Crafthouse by Fortessa Stainless-Steel Ice Bucket | $99.95

This is one of those products that will really help round out the look of your bar, not to mention, it makes things super convenient! It’s sleek, it’s stylish, and has a removable drain plate which makes cleaning very easy. The Crafthouse Ice Scoop is not included but can be purchased here. And yes, the ice scoop is certainly needed to complete the look of the set. best bartender tools

Silicone Ice Sphere Molds, Set of 2 | $10.36

Is there anything better than a spherical ice cube when enjoying a nice glass of whiskey? It chills the drink evenly, melts slowly, and prevents the whiskey from getting diluted and losing its rich flavor. Of course, these spherical cubes aren’t specifically for whiskey, but I would certainly suggest using them for such! The product is BPA and dishwasher safe. best bartender tools

Cocktail Rimmer | $10.36

The one product that is often overlooked but so needed! This handy little cocktail rimmer is the perfect size from Martinis to Margaritas and everything in between. There are three different sections, one for sugar, one for salt, and another for the liquid that makes the ingredients stick (I usually use lime juice). The unit folds together for easy storage and is dishwasher safe. best bartender tools

Stainless-Steel Cocktail Picks, Set of 6 | $15.95

Not essential, per se, but oh so fancy. The perfect polished stainless-steel skewer for olives, cherries, melons and other cocktail garnishes. Each pick has a unique design which helps guests better identify their drinks. A better investment than the throw away wooden or plastic beverage skewers, and they are dishwasher safe!
