Pintado Cordial Glasses Review

via wayfair.com

If you are going to put forth a decent amount of effort making your cocktails taste delicious, you might as well serve them in a way that makes them look just as good as they taste. These cordial classes are perfect for those who enjoy the chemistry of cocktails, and appreciate an elevated presentation of our world's simple pleasures. Cordial glasses are traditionally for smaller, typically spirit forward drinks, but can be used for champaign (shout out to Leo as Gatsby) and other more elegant beverages. Break these out to really impress your guests and show them you are a man of culture and experience.

RBT by Rabbit Drink Shaker Review

via Bedbathandbeyond.com

This week's theme: Drink on Drinks. Everything drink, drink making, and consuming on the goods. To kick things off, an interesting shaker for your more adult beverage creating. This RBT by Rabbit shaker has a cool brass and black color design that is simple, modern, and mildly bad ass so displaying it as a statement piece on your is an option. Color scheme aside, what sets this shaker apart from others is the integrated juicer in the lid, allowing you to introduce fresh juice into your drinks without having to prepress, or institute the fork and squeeze method, which normally ends in you fishing out seeds.

Making the perfect whiskey drink is easier when you have the right tools to concoct it. This mixing glass, bar spoon, and Julep strainer is everything you need to serve up the perfect stirred libation.

Peak Ice Works King Ice Cube Try

Bourbon is king in our liquor cabinet. And the king of our cabinets deserves a king-sized ice cube to cool our drinks. If you've been to a cocktail bar recently you've noticed they've been serving most whiskey or bourbon with this kind of ice. The point of the bigger ice cube is to increase the time it takes for the ice to melt, reducing the amount of water diluting your drink cocktail of choice. Oh, and they also look cool.

Corckcicle Whiskey Wedge

There are plenty of ways to have your scotch or whiskey on the rocks while reducing dilution. There are cubes of stone or metal, orb molds of ice, and now a wedge. The Whiskey Wedge by Corckcicle is a great alternative to the ice spheres, as it melts slower, but will still gently dilute your spirit of choice just enough to allow for the added water to open up more of the flavor and aroma hidden inside your gain based liquor. Our pro tip: make sure you have a squared rocks glass, otherwise this mold will not fit.

Chemex 6 Cup Coffee Brewer

via roastmasters.com

via roastmasters.com

If you are a frequent coffee drinker and haven't tried a Chemex yet, now is a great time to give it a go. This style of brewing allows you to brew more than your standard v60 pour-over (six cups vs one), and it takes about the same amount of time. This method is also our preferred way to brew if we have people over, this way we're not hovering over 3 different cups for 10 mins each just to serve a few guests. If you're hesitant to get one without knowing exactly how to brew with it, don't worry the gents over at Stumptown have you covered.
