A good peeler!
It might sound silly, but if you’re going to make martinis for your friends all night, you'll appreciate a good Y shaped peeler to get all the skin and none of the bitter pith!
Big ice cubes
Because larger ice cubes take longer to melt, meaning your drinks are fresher for longer. You can pick up large-sized ice block moulds for your freezer online.
A good cocktail book (or two)
So you can challenge your mum, brother, partner to make you a drink – meaning you get five minutes to rest your feet and enjoy a glass yourself.
A great playlist!
Whether that’s jazz, indie, reggae – whatever style of music you’re into, a cocktail in your hand is always enjoyed much more with good tunes.
