When I was first exploring cocktails in earnest only a handful of years ago, I received a basic cobbler shaker as a gift. That certainly helped immensely as I had nothing of the sort prior to then, but as I learn more and get better with what I have, I realized I was falling short on so many things. I used an old shot glass as my measuring device, my only "strainer" being a large kitchen sieve. If I attempted a garnish with a pick, it was just a wooden toothpick. Last week I received my order from A Bar Above that comprised of a Boston shaker, a jigger, a set of three strainers and some cocktail picks. My goodness, have these items improved everything for me in my 'bar'! The bar picks help the garnishes look stunning in any glass, the Boston shaker is so much better than my old cobbler, and I don't have to eyeball measurements with my jigger. The items themselves appear to be well made and are very beautiful. I have already used them at least once each day thus far, and I look forward to many years of use!
I apologize for not having a photo of all of the mentioned equipment - I only had some cocktail images on hand. But, I felt this image showed how nice a touch A Bar Above's cocktail picks can add!
