Ever admired a mixologists technique when they combine a glass and shaker and mix a drink over their shoulder? Well, this Boston set was inspired by the pros. As opposed to the all-in-one shaker, this set includes a separate glass and shaker, as well as other accessories needed to craft a masterpiece. It even comes with a clever seal to prevent any leaks escaping – after all, nobody wants to waste a drop of the good stuff. When you see how happy this set makes someone, you’ll know it’s worth its weight in gold.
