Holiday Gifts For Home Cocktail Revolutionaries December 12 2014
We all know that the best gift for the cocktail lover on your list is the ReJigger. But for those of you who bought ReJiggers to stuff last year’s stockings, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite bar accessories to help take your loved one’s home cocktail game to the next level.
These restaurant-grade glasses are graceful enough for a fancy holiday party, but they are also pretty much unbreakable (since they’re made of the same high grade resin as ReJigger), easy to stack in your cabinet, and dishwasher safe. As if that wasn’t enough to make us fall in love, they fit the ReJigger perfectly, for those nights you want to make a single serve cocktail directly in the glass.
There are lots of muddlers out there, but we love the shape of OXO’s easy-to-grab handle - and the nylon tip means you won’t accidentally scratch your glassware. Mojitos, here we come! Those mint leaves won’t stand a chance.
Tovolo’s silicone tray makes 15 perfectly square 1 ounce ice cubes. These good-looking cubes melt more slowly than the boring ice cubes from your current trays, giving you more time to get the perfect Instagram shot. We put 3 cubes into our pint glass when we’re mixing. Plus, the trays are stackable, durable, and come in a variety of fun colors.
Sure, you can sip a ReJigger cocktail out of any old glass, but nothing classes up a drink like a proper coupe! And if you’re on a budget this year, we’ve had great luck hunting down cool vintage coupes at our local thrift store.
A home bar full of craft spirits should also be full of craft bitters! Adding a flavored bitter is the perfect way to get out of a cocktail rut. We love Napa Valley Bitters Co.'s Tamarind Lime Chili Bitters in a ReJiggered Tom Collins or their Pecan Coffee Bitters in the ReJigger Manhattan. Flying home for the holidays? Cocktailpunk's sampler pack is small enough to fit into the ziploc bag of toiletries in your carry-on! Suddenly delays don’t seem so bad.
