Yesterday, Keanna wrote about gifts for wine drinkers. Y’all know that I love me some wine, but I also love a well-made cocktail.

Today, I am going to focus on items that will be at home in any kitchen/bar. Also, all items (after the first) will take you to a Pinterest page with even more items.

Here, I will just focus on the essentials. Wellll, mainly essentials, and some stuff that I just couldn’t help myself from including.

No list of Gifts for Cocktail Enthusiasts would be complete without a plug for our partner, Drizly. I HATE the cold and try to automate as much in my life as possible. Luckily for me, I have Drizly. They deliver wine, beer, liquor, and more at no markups.  Sounds too good to be true, right. Download the app and shop your local liquor store without ever leaving the couch. Order Drizly today and save $5 with DRIZLYFIVE.

Cocktail Ice Mold Set – I worked at a bar to help pay my way through college. Mine was a pretty standard hotel bar, but I made some friends who were damn near mixologist. They taught me about using different ices for different drinks. Now, I have been converted. I need to get a set like this so that I can really step my drinks game up.
