5 OF THE BEST BARWARE GIFTS TO GIVE THIS CHRISTMAS

Barware is a great gift because not only will your pal appreciate something lovely AND useful – but there’s a chance they’ll also immediately make you a cocktail. Everyone’s a winner.

In the last few years with the rise (and rise) of making mixed drinks at home there’s a huge amount of lovely looking glasses and shakers and barspoons and strainers on the high street. These are some of our picks of some of the more fun options out there to brighten up your home bar.  

LIBERTY CHEETAH BOTTLE OPENER - £30
Why have a regular bottle opener when you can have one that’s so on trend?
In real life it’s a really nice chunky thing – the colour is great and it’ll be a real talking point around the table. We urgently want one please if anyone’s buying.undefined
ANTHROPOLOGIE MONOGRAMMED ROCKS GLASSES - £14
What is more decadent than a monogrammed glass?
It makes a very personal present and the art deco font and the gilding adds a sense of occasion.
Whether you’re using it for water or whisky - we’re a fan. undefined
WEST ELM PENGUIN COCKTAIL SHAKER - £29.00
Alright, we’re on a bit of a theme it seems here – but even if your recipient already owns a shaker – this one is just great. It’s a classic three-piece shaker, which means you don’t need to also invest in a strainer for it to be usable. 
P-P-P-Pick Up A… Pisco Sour!? undefined
PIKE’S DISCO BALL COCKTAIL BOWL – £495
Don’t hate us for this one. We know it’s expensive but there is not a house party in the land that won’t benefit from this AMAZING addition.
It holds liquid to serve six to eight people so we’d suggested stocking up on some bottles of Mirror Margarita and living your absolute best rock and roll life. undefined
COCKTAIL KINGDOM NEGRONI FINGER STIRRER - £41.25
OK – this one gets us in the feels and in case you’re thinking now what on earth is this for, indulge us while we explain.

A very great man, one Gaz Regan, author of the Joy of Mixology (first written in 2004 and brilliantly updated last year) was once making a large order of Negroni’s and to speed things up – used his finger to mix the liquid. It became his signature move and has been replicated time and time again in some of the very best bars in the world with Gaz being tagged almost every time. It get’s weirder. Cocktail Kingdom took a mould of said finger and the behold – Gold Plated Finger Stirrer was created. Gaz shook off his mortal coil all too recently but as a fitting tribute to one of the very best – we suggest only stirring your Negroni’s like this forever more. undefined
