Entertaining at home is a daunting task. So let us break it down for you:

  1. You’ve managed to clean your apartment – perfect. Step one is done.
  2. Who’s cooking dinner? If you’re anything like us, you haven’t cooked since those ramen noodle days in college. We have a solution, order Cleo 2 Go; make sure you get multiple orders of the Brussels sprouts (we’re not joking – they’ll change your life).
  3. You have wine and whiskey queued up, now all you need is glassware as the supporting character. We’ve scoured the internet for the perfect glassware pairings for your favorite beverages.
  4. Drink up!

But if all else fails or you just want to get real fancy, bring in the experts. Collins Cocktail Catering will take care of all the work while you sit back and enjoy a drink or two or three. We’re not judging.

For the Shot-Caller

It’s time to toss any and all souvenir shot glasses that have accumulated in your kitchen. These super chic skull shot glasses are the perfect way to update your drinking (pre)game.

For the Whiskey Wonder

It’s no secret that adding oxygen to liquor helps open up the flavor. For all you straight whiskey enthusiasts, these uniquely shaped tumblers eliminate the effort (and awkward feelings) associated with swirling your alcohol to enhance its flavor. Lead-free, and made of crystal, you’ll feel extra legit the next time you pour your scotch on the rocks.

For the Caffeine Fiend

The notNeutral GINO Glass Dripper is a must-have for caffeine addicts. Made from heat resistant and hand-blown glass it pours the perfect cup every time. We can’t start our day without our morning pour from this dripper.

For the Champagne Campaign

These Art Deco champagne glasses inspired by New York’s famed Rainbow Room are almost too cool to use (keyword: almost). They also come with recipes for cocktails once served at the Rainbow Room. Feeling nostalgic yet?

For Everyone That’s Anyone

A kitchen is never complete without a proper icemaker. Enter the Silicone Ice Ball Maker. Square ice tends to melt more quickly than spherical ice (remember those surface area lessons in 7th grade math class?), and no one likes a watered down Laphroaig, so grow – err freeze – a pair.
