While most of us plebs have to settle for stainless steel shakers and glassware from Ikea, there are some stunning cocktail tools out there for the lucky one percent to enjoy. We’re talking about handmade silver shot glasses, Tiffany julep spoons and punch sets that cost more than twice our monthly rent (we’re talking New York City prices, y’all). We would take out a loan for these ridiculously expensive cocktail accessories, just for the eye candy alone.

Sribnyk Fish Silver Shot Glass ($571)

If you have $600 to drop on a single shot glass, this should be the shot glass you choose. Handmade in the Ukraine from silver and gold, this precious drinking vessel will make every spirit taste like it was distilled for royalty.

Waterford Snowflake Wishes Cased Double Old Fashioned ($3,000 for a set of 10)

Hector Aguilar Aztec Mexican Silver Bar Spoon ($695)

As one of designer Hector Aguilar’s most iconic creations, it’s easy to see why the price tag on this sterling silver bar spoon is so steep. It’s heavy enough to double as a muddler, so at least you’re getting two tools in one.

Tiffany & Co. Vintage Sterling Silver Julep Spoons ($715 for a set of 4)

While you could certainly use these elegant sipping spoons for iced tea like 1stdibs suggests, we recommend busting them out on Derby day when serving Mint Juleps. The fabulous 1950s set will take you back to more refined times before Fireball and Jägerbombs.

Los Castillo Nude Women Goblets ($2,400 for a set of 6)

Any drink would be lucky to be served in one of these delightful coupe glasses, perfect for fans of unusual art and glassware. The women are made of copper and the bowls and bases are sterling silver.
