best cocktail set on amazon for home bar

There’s something so chic and grown-up about having a home bar (or bar cart), even if you’re only making mocktails. No matter what kind of mixed drinks you’re crafting, you need the same basic tools in your arsenal—namely, a cocktail shaker, a bar spoon, a strainer, and a jigger or shot glass to measure pours. There are other bar tools that’ll come in handy too, but those are a great place to start—and they often come packaged together in sets, so it’s easy to start building your home barware collection. Here are some of the best cocktail sets on Amazon.

Barillio Elite 23-Piece Bartender Set with Bamboo Stand, $59.97 on Amazon

Complete Cocktail Set for Home Bar on Amazon

Barillio/Amazon

In addition to the usual tools (cocktail shaker, strainer, muddler, double-sided jigger, and bar spoon), this classic silver set comes with a sleek polished bamboo stand to keep everything contained, not to mention ice tongs, multiple bottle stoppers and pour spouts, and a recipe booklet. Oh, and a velvet carrying bag in case you want to take your cocktail toolkit on the go.See It

Mixology & Craft/Amazon

This cocktail set covers all the basics (shaker, strainer, spoon, muddler, jiggers, spout, plus a corkscrew/bottle opener), and it comes in a rustic-chic wooden crate that you can hang on your wall in case you’re short on surface space—picture this mounted above a bottle-packed bar cart, for instance. Or, if your cart still has some extra room, use the empty crate to hold your bitters and mixers instead.See It

If you’re after a fairly no-frills cocktail set and have plenty of cabinet space to stash it, this one hits all the important points: shaker, strainer, bar spoon, jigger, shot glasses, pour spouts, and a bottle opener to boot (for when you want to have a beer cocktail, for instance), and all comes in at a very reasonable price.See It

Cresimo 12-Piece Stainless Steel Home Cocktail Bar Set, $27.95 on Amazon

If you like the above set-up and price point but would also like a stand to hold it all, here's another option.

VinoBravo Boston Cocktail Shaker Set, $38.90 – $68.96 on Amazon

Boston shaker cocktail set on Amazon

VinoBravo/Amazon

A Boston shaker usually refers to a metal shaker tin used in conjunction with a regular pint glass (as opposed to the tapered three-piece “Cobbler shaker,” which consists of a tall metal base, a built-in strainer, and a metal cap or lid)—in many cases, Boston shaker sets’ two main pieces are both made of metal, but one is still always shaped just like a pint glass. This basic Boston shaker set includes a strainer, double jigger, muddler, pour spouts, and bar spoon, and comes in several different finishes, from antique brass to copper to this matte-metallic black that would look fetching on any bar. Price varies by color.See It

Quiseen Whiskey Stones, 9 for $8.95 on Amazon

These 100-percent-pure soapstone cubes are great to use in any drink you want to chill but not dilute with melting ice.

ALOONO 11-Piece Copper Boston Cocktail Shaker Set, $39.80 – $56.80 on Amazon

Another cocktail set in the Boston shaker style, this includes all the usual basics, plus tongs and a mesh strainer for extra-clarified cocktails. It comes in a few different colors besides this rose-gold hue, including understated silver, and an oil-slick rainbow shade for those after something a little more eye-popping (however, note that the rainbow option lacks the mesh strainer).See It

Mofado Crystal Cocktail Mixing Glass Set, $39.95 on Amazon

Some drinks are better stirred than shaken (martinis, for one, despite James Bond’s famous order), and a dedicated cocktail mixing glass is an elegant option; this one comes with a bar spoon, jigger, and strainer too. This is great for mixing spirits with ice and/or muddled ingredients and then straining them into another glass to be served neat, when you don’t want the added aeration that comes from shaking.See It

Galrose 7-Piece Iron and Rose Gold Bar Set, $62.95 on Amazon

chic rose gold and metallic cocktail set on amazon

Galrose Dezigns/Amazon

This basic cocktail set has fewer tools than some, but basically everything you need for most drinks (double jigger, spoon, strainer, and shaker, plus tongs and bottle opener). More importantly, it mixes shiny rose-gold tops with distressed galvanized metal bottoms for a striking accent piece that also happens to have a greater purpose. The accessories stand tall on the magnetic wooden base because they’re obviously too pretty to hide in a drawer.See It

VonShef Premium Black and Gold Cocktail Shaker Barware Set, $47.99 on Amazon

sleek modern cocktail set on amazon

VonShef/Amazon

Another fashion-forward pick, this bright gold and matte black barware set includes (besides the shaker) a muddler, strainer, bar spoon, and double jigger that hang in suspension from the geometric stand. Honestly, this might be a case of form over function (per the slightly mixed reviews), but some of us just can’t pass up pretty things—and much as we love a good black and tan at the bar, this is even better.See It

The Perfect Black and Tan Beer Layering Tool, $9.94 on Amazon

For when you want actual black and tans, this gagdet promises perfect layers.

Bibo Barmaid Smart Cocktail Machine, $149.99 on Amazon

Bibo Barmaid automatic cocktail making machine on amazon

Bibo/Amazon

If shaking your own drink sounds like too much work (it is time to relax, right?), consider this robo-bartender that’s like a Keurig machine for cocktails. You insert the naturally flavored mixer pouch of your choice—plus your alcohol, of course—and then let the machine blend it for you in less than half a minute. You still have to pour it into your own glass, but new technological advances are around the corner all the time…See It

Bibo Barmaid System Cocktail Mixes, 12 for $25.88 and up on Amazon

Make Margaritas, Appletinis, Mai Tais, Tangerine Palomas, and Cucumber Melon cocktails—or rather, have the machine make them for you at the touch of a button.

Once you’re all geared up (assuming you go the old-fashioned cocktail shaker route), check out our cocktail recipes and decide what to mix up first, from classic drinks to more modern options like tea cocktails, wine cocktails, sherry cocktails, and even CBD cocktails if you really want to chill. But these work just as well for mocktails too!
