We’d Take Out a Loan for These Ridiculously Expensive Cocktail Accessories
While most of us plebs have to settle for stainless steel shakers and glassware from Ikea, there are some stunning cocktail tools out there for the lucky one percent to enjoy. We’re talking about handmade silver shot glasses, Tiffany julep spoons and punch sets that cost more than twice our monthly rent (we’re talking New York City prices, y’all). We would take out a loan for these ridiculously expensive cocktail accessories, just for the eye candy alone.
