Bar Tools

The first step in designing any bar is acquiring the proper tools for mixing. We suggest selecting an all-in-one stainless steel kit, which has a timeless, classic appearance that will never go out of style. Best of all, it can be thrown in the dishwasher. Make sure the kit contains the following: a shaker, jigger, strainer, bar knife, zester, bottle opener, and long bar spoon.

Bartender Tip: Look for a cobbler-style shaker. A cobbler shaker has a built-in strainer. A Boston shaker requires a pint glass and separate strainer.
