Raise Your Glass

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

As holiday overdrive 2011 winds down, chances are you've grown a little weary of red and green, snowmen, and twinkle lights. So at your New Year's bash, put away the glitter and impress your friends with these cocktail accoutrements. They're sophisticated but still a little funky, and they'll ensure you ring in 2012 in style.

1. Musical Wine Glasses by Luna and Curious tell you how much to pour so you can strike up a song. Fill your cup to the right line, lick your finger, and run it around the rim. The correct note will ring out. We promise.

2. Modern, chic, and sleek, the Nambé Twist Cocktail Shaker is certain to make any martini more interesting.

3. Class-up your drink stirrers with Glass Dharma's Decorative Dots Straws. They add a great pop of color, and they’re a cool way to keep track of your glass.

4. Rainbow Tumblers from MoMA Store are made from acrylic, not glass, so you can avoid major party fouls.

5. Boris Bally's D.O.T. Coasters, forged from upcycled street signs, guard your tabletops and look great, too.
