Such a cute bartending supplies to set on your bar! I love the red! It looks just like it does in the photo. It is good quality and works great. It doesn't leak when mixing the drinks. The stir spoon is the perfect size for mixing drinks. The tongs for grabbing ice are a great addition to this set...
