Bartending tools from Polite Provisions

Since craft cocktails first landed on the scene, a soigné drink in hand has been a stylish accessory. But now, in these transparent times, the tools are just as trendy as the cocktails themselves. Out with mixology, in with meta-mixology. That’s the idea behind the new retail offerings at Polite Provisions, Erick Castro’s super-popular hipster bar in University Heights. Shakers, muddlers, bitters, and other essentials are available for purchase, and range in price from $3 to $22. All items have that same nostalgic, vintage drugstore feel that Polite Provisions is designed after. Just in time for the holiday season, they make a thoughtful and boozy gift (our favorite combo!) for the cocktail lover on your list. 4696 30th Street, University Heights
