Creating the ultimate home bar is a project that can last a lifetime. And we mean that in the best way. For discerning drinkers who love nothing more than obsessing over how to craft a truly great cocktail, there is always something new to add to the collection of mixing tools and glassware. And this year, we covered quite a bit of territory in that regard. In fact, a variety of those items earned an Expert Pick seal.

Below, you'll find some of our favorite expert-recommended essentials for next-level cocktail making and spirit sipping that we wrote about this year.
