Bar + Wine Tools

It’s good to feel appreciated. There’s nothing like seeing a huge smile on your guests’ faces after a meal that you prepared. Chances are your friends already rave about your skills as a chef or with a grill, but at Mark and Graham we want to extend your fame as a bartender too. Special occasions are even more memorable when you serve a delicious homemade pina colada, margarita or martini. Treat your guests to something with a touch of your distinctive flair by creating a signature drink. And you don’t have to stop there. Personalized bar tools and monogrammed napkins let you show off a little too. Here are a few tools every mixologist needs when it’s time to party.


Get equipped with a monogrammed cutting board. Basically, you need a level work surface to make drinks. That way it’s easy to cut up lemons, slice limes and veggies, create garnishes and rim margarita glasses. What kind of cutting board is the best? Well, that depends on the atmosphere you want your bar or deck to have. If you’re looking for a laid-back or tropical feel, go with a wood cutting board. Marble is especially elegant, which works if you want to serve martinis wearing a black tuxedo. No matter what you choose, having it personalized gives you extra confidence and adds a bit of elegance to the occasion. Plus, some boards also come with engraved bar measurements to give you a hand at prep time. Don’t forget to stand out with bar glasses that are different from the rest.


Feature your favorite vintages with a wine holder. True, a fine wine is a great way to leave a lasting impression, but don’t let the bottle steal all the attention. A monogrammed wine holder showcases wine but also reminds people who the collector is. That way, instead of just talking about the incredible flavors of the wine, your guests will remember that you have impeccable taste in vintages. Also, a sleek metallic holder engraved with your initials adds a lot of sophistication to a party.


One thing that’s essential for great cocktails is a shaker. Crystal clear martinis taste amazing when agitated firmly. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be a little bit suave and debonair when hosting a party with friends? Our large shakers hold enough ingredients for several drinks. That way you get consistent results and don’t have to spend the whole evening back and forth behind the bar. Use cheeseboards or serving trays to highlight delicious hors d’oeuvres too.


What kind of cocktail shaker is right for your bar? There are a lot to choose from. Glass, copper, stainless-steel and even acrylic each have strengths for certain situations. Copper is sleek and exotic. It has a color and shine that stands out anywhere. It’s a good choice if you want a warm atmosphere that still feels pro too. Stainless-steel works especially well in formal events – especially in rooms that are bright white or have a lot of illumination. Glass shakers are flexible enough to fit in with formal or casual parties, and also bring some fun to the table. They let guests watch as you swirl drinks around, which is amazing if you’re serving something bright green or blue. Some models even include a mixture of glass and copper in their design for the best of both worlds. For really laid-back occasions, or if you want barware you can leave on the deck without worrying, go with acrylic. It’s practically indestructible.


Make sure you have a way to serve wine and beer on the fly. If you’re pressed for time in the kitchen, a great way to keep guests entertained while you’re busy working is to offer a cold beer or a glass of wine. It’s quick and easy, and you won’t get any complaints from company. Our corkscrews are dependable and stylish too. Add some excitement to the mix with personalized bottle openers in distinctive shapes. They cater to your interests and hobbies, from golf and tennis to work around the house. All of our bar tools make excellent gifts for a fellow bartending aficionado.
