The Ultimate Bar: Ice Bucket

Sure you can rush to the refrigerator's automatic ice maker or open the freezer and grab a tray of cubes, but come on, aren't ice buckets the height of chic when it comes to cocktailology? The supreme entertainer will have an ice bucket ready and waiting, with tongs nearby whenever guests need a refill. The tongs are as important as the ice bucket, one can not exist without the other. If you think about the way a professional bartender works, the ice is always in a nearby and easily accessible location. Often an overlooked ingredient in a cocktail, ice is essential to chilling drinks and is as necessary as the alcohol itself. While there are many novelty ice buckets out there, I prefer to keep things simple and classic to minimize the clutter on my bar counter space. This clear glass ice bucket comes with a beautiful crystal encrusted set of tongs. When it's not filled with ice fill it with fresh flowers to add elegance to your bar! It's even a steal, on sale for only $9.99.

Two more ice buckets so

For the sleek bachelor who has it all, this modern-deco ice bucket makes an excellent host gift. The bucket, that is polished stainless steel, has a cute tiny knob lid. The only downside is that the tongs don't come with the bucket (which is also on sale for $29.95) - you have to purchase the ice scoop separately.

The design for this opulent black leather ice bucket (the most expensive at $99.99) was inspired by the Jazz Age's Parisian nightclub furniture. The bucket is double walled for extra insulation and the tongs are modern and stainless steel.

I love the clear one! I have party of my martini glass collection decorating the top of my dry bar, and that bucket will be a nice compliment. I'm so buying that this weekend! "Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"

I love the first one! Multi-purpose and still attractive. I got an ice bucket for my wedding, but I'm not all that enamored of it...
