Every bar cart needs a handful of essential spirits and bar tools. How you choose to stock the former is entirely up to you, but we have a suggestion or two for the latter. And famed British designer Tom Dixon’s copper shot glass and jigger set is most definitely an essential to have.

Dixon’s penchant for copper is a recurring theme in his collections (ranging from candles to home decor) and there’s a perfectly good reason why. As the designer explains it, copper “has the longest and richest historical connection with humans.” Which, if you think about it for a minute, is entirely true. Copper is widely used in multiple industries and disciplines, like jewelry, electricity, cooking and science. But in this case, we’re talking about the fine art of mixing drinks.

The five-piece set includes a jigger and four standard shot glasses made from copper-plated, brushed stainless steel that’s been lacquered for a long-lasting finish. Even though this set has been lacquered, it will eventually begin to show signs of tarnish as air begins to permeate through the finish. You can, of course, keep things bright and shiny with a bit of elbow grease once in a while. The choice is up to you, but we like a little patina here and there to really go with the classic cocktails you’ll be making.
