Our favorite cocktail glasses, stirrers and more

It's Spirits Month! Get in on all the booze-filled fun.

You've stocked up on the essential fall bottles, arranged them all on a fancy new bar cart and prepped for your perfectly executed cocktail party.

So are you going to pick up red plastic cups and call it a night? Absolutely not.
