Why is it a good deal?

This bar set hasn't been priced this low since summer 2022, making it a great time to snap it up. Also, when you factor in the cost of getting a craft cocktail at your local bar, it basically pays for itself after two drinks.

Why do I need this?

Cocktails are expensive when you go out, and it also means you have to get dressed, schlep yourself to a bar or restaurant and wait for your drink to be made. This eight-piece set has everything you need to whip up your favorite cocktail at home, including a strainer, double-sided jigger, mixing spoon, Hawthorne strainer, corkscrew, ice tongs and bottle opener.

The stainless steel kit is durable and has a pretty silver finish (although you can also opt for matte black). It even comes with a wooden holder for all the parts to create an organized display you'll feel good about leaving out. There are also recipe cards for your favorite drinks to help guide you along the way.

Planning to give this as a holiday gift? The set comes in pretty packaging, so you can forgo the gift wrap.
