metrokane_vip_barware_setJust because you want to prep the best possible cocktails at home doesn’t mean you have to mortgage the house for bar tools. Made of 18/8 stainless-steel in gleaming finish with handles wrapped in faux leather (for the look without the worry of water damage), the Metrokane VIP 7 piece bar tool set is both attractive and practical. Included in the kit is a strainer, citrus knife, stirrer, ice spoon, double-jigger measure, and bottle opener, so owning one for your home bar means you can whip up just about any libation under the sun, as long as you have a spare shaker lying around.

Currently on sale at Amazon for less than $20, as an added bonus Metrokane also includes a small book covering the 10 most popular cocktails in America and how to make them. In other words, you’ll have plenty of inspiration for using your newly acquired toys. If red happens to be too racy for your tastes, the same set is available in black.

Cost: $19
