Get all of the right
Mixing drinks require much more than just getting a spoon and some glassware. Drinks require measurement, shaking, muddling, and so much more that you might find yourself needing a few tools to throw in the mix as well. The tools below are just a few I use personally and I do plan to expand upon this section further at a later time.

In my most recent cocktail videos this is the cocktail shaker set you'll see me using.It comes with weighted shaker tins, a cocktail spoon, julep strainer, Hawthorne strainer, Ice tongs, Japanese Style Jigger, a mesh strainer, a muddler and a couple of speed pourers.
A Lewis Ice bag is basically a cloth sack you use to smash ice in. It's a great stress relief to crush some ice up with a mallet in one. Plus you get to drink afterwards so that's even better.
My older videos utilize this shaker kit. It comes with shaker tins, a jigger, a Hawethorne strainer, bottle opener, wine bottle opener, and 6 pour spouts. No where near as nice as the one I use now, but it's also half the price. Not a bad kit to start with.
I LOVE this glass for stirring cocktails. It is a nice heavyweight glass with a pour spout that works great with a julep strainer for drinks that require stirring. Plus plenty of space for making multiple drinks in one.
