No bar is complete without bar-ware. I am a sucker for crystal. My absolute favorite crystal bar-ware is the Dorset collection from William Sonoma
One of my favorite drinks to make when entertaining is an old fashion. They look even more delicious in a gorgeous crystal glass.

Bar-ware sets are always a nice little addition. This 10 piece set from Mixology and Craft has a beautiful mix of metals and wood. Kits that include a decorative storage solution are great for displaying and keeping pieces together.
