To recreate the best of Boston’s craft cocktail scene at home, shop the Boston Shaker. Troll the shelves for double jiggers, soda chargers and artisanal bitters – they have more than 50 kinds; maple or sarsaparilla, anyone? – not to mention hand-blown headhunter glass tiki mugs. There’s even a Traveler Bar Bag with space for bottles, shakers, strainers and glasses – perfect for globetrotters

The Boston Shaker in Somerville, Mass.
Just a short drive from downtown Boston, this compact but well-stocked shop offers an impressive selection of accoutrements for professional and amateur cocktail enthusiasts alike. Visitors can stock up on specialty ice trays, wooden muddlers and kitschy tiki mugs, thumb through an array of books on all things alcoholic, and sample dozens of artisanal bitters and infused syrups. Perhaps best of all, the shop’s staff is always at the ready with technique and recipe advice, creating an atmosphere devoid of the intimidation factor that often scares off cocktail novices.

Acid Phosphate & More in the December Bon Appetit Gift Guide

Bon Appetit is digging Acid Phosphate (Ice Mallets and Stainless Steel Ice Trays, too) Continue

Another great pick from the gang at Bon Appetit.  This year they were after Horsford’s Acid Phosphate (made by our friend up north, Darcy O’Neil).

Bon Appetit Gift Guide

Not only that – but two of their other picks are stocked on our shelves as well.  The Ice Mallet and the Stainless Steel Ice Tray.

Those folks over at BA have good taste.  We think you should nab the tray, the phosphate and a bottle of Ango and make yourself a nice Angostura Phosphate… that’s what we’re planning to do.

Adam at the first store

On Friday of last week, I had the joy of visiting the Boston Shaker in Somerville, Mass., a semi-new store-within-a-store that specializes in bar- and glassware, cocktail makings (everything but the booze, that is), and other fun stuff. I had a fun visit with proprietor Adam Lantheaume, and enjoyed a cameo appearance by Fred Yarm, of Cocktail Virgin Slut. Here’s a bit of a photo tour, for those who’ve never see the place.

Thats a bit of my history right there. Thanks for the memories!
