We beg to differ: This handsome cherry wood box is everything you’ll need to be your own favorite local hangout. Just prop open the lid and you’ll find (wait for it), nineteen sleek tools, including a stainless steel jigger and a marble cutting board (because what’s a gin and tonic without a wedge of lime?). Set includes: acacia box, cocktail sticks, cocktail stick caddy, Hawthorne strainer, tongs, bar spoon, double-sided jigger, muddler, corkscrew, two-piece Boston shaker, paring knife, bottle opener, ice bucket, mixing glass, and a cutting board Photography by Julia Gartland, Rocky Luten

Herb & Lou Infused Cocktail Ice Cubes

On the cubes with a twist. As legend would have it, while snooping around in his grandfather’s attic, Herb’s grandson stumbled upon a whole treasure trove of cocktail recipes Herb and his friend Lou had concocted in the 1920’s. For all their fondness for mixology, the two didn’t want to spend the night with swizzle sticks in hand. Thus was born the brilliant freezable mixer we have today. Just open a single cube and douse with your favorite alcohol and garnish (or splash with a little seltzer for an equally sippable non-alcoholic cocktail). Photo Courtesy of Food52

Arne Jacobsen Cylinda Line Barware Ice Tongs

Originally sketched on a napkin in 1964, Arne Jacobsen’s Cylinda Line (1967) stainless steel barware took three years, and the creation of new technology, to produce.

An immediate success, Cylinda Line was awarded the 1967 ID Prize by the Danish Design Council, and pieces of the line are included in the permanent collections of MoMA and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
