Having the right equipment on hand means that mixing the perfect cocktail is as pleasurable an experience as enjoying the results – it’s all about the journey, not just the destination, right?
You’ve watched the YouTube tutorial on how to make the perfect cocktail, then you’ve muddled, stirred, strained and/or shaken your concoction into the most divine cocktail glassware. It almost feels like you are back in Bali, and not surrounded by a pile of washing in your living room. That is the power of a strong cocktail, my friends!

Klukflaske. Available from Great Dane.
Almost like a droplet of water itself, the Klukflaske is made of mouth-blown transparent glass, which makes it particularly decorative with either whisky or cognac in it on the bar trolley. It makes a special glug-glugging sound when the liquid is poured from the bottle.
