It’s no brainer, when you serve wine, a proper glass would definitely bring out the best of any wine. You can find good stemware brands and perhaps you can buy a set or two for this to fill in your home bar. Depending on your budget, there are pieces which cost a bit high. One of the best brands is Connoisseur.
Cocktails are interesting to prepare because you can be as artistic as you want. For cocktails you will need jigger, strainer, muddler, zester and cocktail shaker. These are helpful when mixing your drink and with your presentation using some types of glasses like highball glasses, martini glasses, shot glasses, margarita glasses and whiskey glasses. And of course don’t forget a cocktail recipe book that you can refer to when the situation calls for.
