CLEAR ICE MOLD from W+P Design
We know the importance of ice, so this insulated mold will do the trick for the home bartender.
This ice mold makes one extra large, crystal clear ice cube, perfect for a pour of your favorite spirit or craft cocktail. To use the mold, simply fill with water and place in the freezer overnight. The insulated sleeve causes the ice to freeze from the top down, forcing any bubbles or impurities to the base of the mold. Once frozen simply break the mold apart to release your clear ice cube, and enjoy.

YUKIWA 24K Gold-Plated Cobbler Shaker
We love our Japanese bartools and this one is on our wishlist. Not all shakers are created equal and one reason is the quality and craftsmanship of Japanese bar tools. This cobbler shaker is a perfect edition for the home bar. In Japan, a three-piece cobbler shaker like this one is essential for the Hard Shake, a cocktail shaking technique created by legendary bartender Kazuo Uyeda. But for more practical reasons, this shaker is ideal for its smaller size – it fits comfortably in your hand, and the lightness makes your 30-second shake more enjoyable and fun. Bring bling into your shake!
