At her Seattle bar, Rob Roy, mixologist Anu Apte obviously has all of the traditional barware, but she also likes to use special tools that she's collected along the way. Below are some of her favorites from her stunning tool kit.
“All of these tools are sentimental to me for different reasons; some are antiques, some are gifts and some are even from India. My parents go back every year and my mom always brings me back beautiful silver things. I also love wandering through consignment and antiques shops whenever I have the time.”

These trees love to be spritzed. But in the bar, I use this to spritz an aromatic liqueur over a drink for a slight flavor, but mostly for aroma.”
