Ultimate Cocktail Shaker Set

Everything you need to create all your favorite Martinis, Manhatten cocktails, Old fashioned drinks, fruity cocktails and creamy drinks -

You get a stainless cocktail shaker with glass, strainer, stirring spoon, muddler to crush fruit, two measuring shot cups and drink recipe book.

Comes in a box if you'd like to store your new cocktail set and you might like the pocket cocktail guide to give you more ideas on drink making.

For large groups, a Halloween fundraiser or a kids party we suggest using plastic cups that won't shatter glass all over your bar, room or guests.

It's important to always think safety first when hosting guests in our homes.

Halloween Plastic Cups won't shatter when the party gets wild and crazy.... - and a Halloween party usually does!!

These are the classic martini shaped glasses in fun, vibrant colors so guests can keep a better eye on which is theirs.

The tops and bottoms are separate pieces and simply snap in place, mix and match the colors for more fun and they store easily if you care to wash and reuse them for your next event.

Plus, the best part is that they won't shatter glass all over if broken!

Have your say, we'd love your opinion:

Guests will leave with great memories of a fun party and will look forward to your future events.

Collect Halloween party supplies and decorations each year when you find great deals.
