Even if you’re a cocktail novice you probably have the barest, most basic set of bar tools—a spoon, a shaker, a strainer. But small additions can make huge differences in your cocktail game.
Once you've set up the bar cart of your dreams, there are on a few accessories, in addition to your glassware of course, that you'll need in order to craft beautiful at-home cocktails. The vessels in which you stir or shake your drinks are where it all begins.
Here are the best bar accessories, tools, and drinkware:

Tongs and containers for ice cubes and, of course, trays for your preferred ice shape and size are one of those home bar tool collections that don't go missed once you get your hands on one. Some bar tool sets come with tongs totally worth displaying, too, but if they don't, an ice bucket and tong set are just what you need to keep trips to the freezer (or worse, runs to the grocery store) to a minimum.
