  2. Easy-to-use corkscrew
  3. Waiter's corkscrew
  4. Glass stirring rod or long spoon
  5. Coil-rimmed bar strainer
  6. A tall, heavy-duty mixing glass or shaker
  7. Small, sharp stainless steel paring knife (for fruit)

  11. Set of measuring spoons
  12. A jigger measure with easy-to-read half and quarter-ounce measures
