I'm setting up a home bar, and I've already got the alcohol more or less set. And, I know I need to get the following bar tools- boston shaker, hawthorne strainer, jigger, channel knife, etc.. But, does anybody have any suggestions for which boston shaker to get, which hawthorne strainer to get, etc? I tried googling it up, and all I ended up finding was askmen's 'must-own barware' which included such essentials as the ninety dollar gucci ice trays... Imbibe magazine seemed like it would have been a good reference to turn to where they pick their favorite gadget or tool each issue, a la Cook's Illustrated, but they don't post their picks online.
