My husband's birthday is coming up and he wants some bar supplies. He's looking for a hawthorne strainer, the stir stick (not the technical name, but it's a long silver stick to stir drinks with), a muddler, and some pour spouts.
Does anyone know of a store in Minneapolis that sells good (as in substantial and long-lasting) bar supplies? I ask because I bought him some pour spouts from Crate & Barrel last year and they were AWFUL, but the ones my husband has his eye on right now are $200 a set at some fancy bar tool website!
Should I go to a kitchen supply store? (Never been to one!) Or would I be better off at a place like Sur La Table? Or maybe France 44?
Also does anyone know where I can get Bittercube bitters in town? And has anyone tried them?
