I've linked each of these Amazon at-home bar essentials by listing them below in clockwise order from Top Left:
Cosmopolitan Martini Glasses, Set of 4 - These are such a modern take on the traditional martini glass. Much easier to hold and looks better than the more common skinny stem martini glass. Pick up a set of 4 for just under $15!
Set of 12 Natural Linen Hemstitch Cocktail Napkins - These are 100% linen and a big upgrade from using paper cocktail napkins. Yes you will have to occasionally wash them but it's worth it if you're trying to feel like you're out at a nice bar! A set of 12 is only $15.99 and you'll have them forever.
Lemon Squeezer, Yellow - This is the best citrus press period. I use it daily; you can add citrus to seltzer, tea, salads and cocktails! Make a fairly healthy cocktail with simply a squeeze of citrus and you're liquor of choice. This is $7.95 and you will use it more than you think.
Cocktail Mixing Glass Set - This is a perfect set to have at home that gives you all of the necessary tools to actually make great cocktails. The mixing glass and spoon are a more sophisticated way to "stir" your cocktail instead of aggressively shaking it before pouring it into the glass. The muddler comes in handy with mint for Mojitos! This set is $39.95.
Bamboo Cocktail Picks - set of 300 - These 4 inch cocktail picks are very nice and will last you forever (300 of them!). You could use them for olives or cherries in your cocktail OR for a cheese/olive platter. These are great for other appetizers that require a toothpick and they look much more attractive than a standard toothpick. Super affordable at $7.99 for 300.
Premium Crystal Whiskey Glasses, Heavy Weighted (set of 2) - These are the top selling whiskey glasses on Amazon and for good reason! There are over 600 4+ star reviews and they are identical to the glasses you see at high end cocktail bars. A set of 2 is $24.95 and so worth it!
Thanks for checking out this Amazon shopping board - I hope you're able to update your at home cocktails with some of these fun and affordable items!
