"I can’t go past a good cocktail shaker, for obvious reasons!"
2. Impressive Ice
"Giant ice moulds are a bit fancy and elevate a cocktail like you are in some fab New York skyline bar."
3. Citrus Garnish
"I love a good garnish. Dehydrated lemons and limes are so easy, look fab, and add an aroma to the drinking experience too."
