What do I buy for a cocktail lover?
For someone who loves craft cocktails but hasn’t delved into making them at home yet, a set of classic coupe glasses paired with a simple cobbler shaker is an excellent way to get them started on their home bar. For an avid home bartender, do a little sleuthing and see if they’ve got any gaps in their glassware collection: a stylish set of martini glasses, a set of highball glasses, or some versatile Old Fashioned glasses are always good places to start. A classic Lewis Ice Bag and Mallet is a great gift for cocktail nerds, since it allows them to have complete control over the quality of their ice, and a sturdy muddler is an excellent addition to any home bar.
If they’re particularly drawn to tiki drinks, look for modern takes on the classic tiki mug in refined materials like crystal, or if they have a signature drink, gift them with cocktail-specific glasses for their favorite drinks like a Gin & Tonic glass, Negroni glass, Manhattan glass, or Moscow Mule mug.
