The Cocktail Set
composition and function

Everything you need to serve a classically prepared drink to a soiree of friends, relatives, or business associates, with a single purchase! That is what we offer in our selection of Nifty-Home-Bar.com Cocktail Sets

A Cocktail Set traditionally includes a set of matching glasses and a large container for either storing or mixing ingredients. Some sets will include a serving tray, and some also include a bar tool or two, such as a stirrer or a muddler. The combination of items is designed for the preparation and presentation of a certain type of drink.

A Whisky Set will generally include a heavy, cut-glass decanter, designed to store Bourbon, Scotch, Brandy, or other spirit, plus two or four glasses designed for drinking the particular spirt for which the decanter is designated. This might be glasses specifically designed to accentuate the enjoyment and aroma of a single malt Scotch, a fine, aged Bourbon, a delicate Brandy or Cognac, or another amber-colored liquor, or a basic all-purpose glass, such as the Double Old Fashioned glass. While a tray is often included, a bar tool is seldom also a component of a Whiskey Set.

The Martini Set, which enjoyed great popularity for many years, traditionally includes a stylish glass pitcher (with a stirrer, usually also of glass) into which ingredients of choice are combined, and several Martini glasses. A basic problem with this traditional set is the fact that seemingly a majority of Martini purists prefer to shake and not stir their Martinis. Martini Sets with shakers rather than pitchers are available, but are not as readily found as the traditional set.

The Martini Set's first cousin, the Vodka Set, has grained much popularity in recent years. It often features a decanter for storing your favorite Vodka, a set of Vodka Shooter-type glasses, and, rather than a tray, a bowl-like "caddy" that is meant to be filled with ice, to keep your decanter and your glasses, all filled with Vodka, icy cold.

Today there are also large numbers of "abbreviated" Cocktail Sets on the market. These are not true "Sets", but while marketed as such, are actually just sets of glasses of a particular type, and include nothing more - no decanter, no pitcher, no shaker, no tray, and no bar tool. They are, in reality, a set of Collins glasses, a set of Margarita glasses, or a set of Mojito glasses, for example, except that many Mojito sets do include a muddler.

By purchasing a Cocktail Set, a home bartender can save money by not having to pay for glasses, trays, pitchers, decanters, and tools all separately, and if a fan of a particular type of drink, he or she can acquire all that is needed to easily prepare that drink, and to serve it in style.
