You’ll be getting plenty of oohs and aahs from your party guests thanks to this nifty (and deceptively easy to use) cocktail layering gadget.

Get Techy

@brottle

Put down the cocktail shaker and open your arms (and wallet) to the world’s first WiFi-connected, craft cocktail maker. It can make your chosen concoction in less than 5 seconds and even infuse bitters into each drink. Perfect if you’re fed up of squinting at cocktail recipes on your phone or someone ‘accidentally’ pouring in that extra bit of rum. Sit back and let technology do the graft.

Frozen, not stirred

@tuulavintage

Can you make a frozen Daiquiri? Even better, can you make a frozen Daiquiri, Pina Colada and Strawberry Beach all at the same time? Oh yes you can, with the help of the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker. It’s as simple as adding the ingredients for each cocktail, filling with ice then watching all three jugs fill up with a refreshing, frozen blend. It’s the ultimate excuse to have a pool party every day this summer. And we do love to have an excuse, even if we don’t always need one.

Jack of all trades

Edward Scissorhands has nothing on this contraption. The 10 in 1 multi-purpose number includes a muddler, juice reamer, knife, jigger and zester so you need not take the kitchen sink on your outings to the beach. No bottle opener? No corkscrew? No problem. Not only can you make super impressive garnishes, you’ll be zesting and juicing at the party like no other, too.

Perfect Serve

http://bit.ly/1Ixqyzc

Serving drinks in a punchbowl is so 2001. Cue the Stacked Beverage Server, aka the must-have house party accessory. Not only will you avoid making a massive mess (with great punchbowls come great spillages) but there are THREE different cocktails on offer, each of which holds, wait for it… 2.5 gallons of cocktails. As if that wasn’t enough, the server looks great, too.

Rapid Beverage Chiller

Uh-oh! You’ve forgotten to chill the drinks. Sure, the freezer is an option, but you’ll still need to delay cocktail o’clock by an hour or so. What a disaster. Or, at least it would be without The Rapid Beverage Chiller. Armed with different chill temperatures and optional spin settings, this baby can chill drinks 90 times faster than a fridge and 40 times faster than a freezer. Hurrah!

Citrus Sipper Ice Straw Mould

@sincerleyjules

This summer is all about having the best of everything, including the ice in your drink (regular ice cubes are so passé, babes). Fred and Friends Citrus Sipper is an ice-cube and straw combo, freezing citrus-shaped ice-cubes onto a straw, meaning your cocktail will not only be chilled, but extra fruity, too. Why settle for ordinary when you can have awesome?
