These Brass Coasters Are (Almost) Too Pretty To Use

Elegant, simple and modern, these industrial, solid Brass Lift Coasters are designed to elevate (and elevate) your glassware. Might we also add how unbelievably good they look just sitting there, even when they’re not doing their job? Kind of like how we’d imagine James Bond would look on the weekend.

But, like James Bond, these coasters never really do take a day off, do they? When they’re not supporting a glass, they moonlight as home décor. Yes, they’re that pretty.

They’re about the size of a cocktail napkin (4.5" x 4.5" x 3.75" to be exact) and come in a set of four. The brass is uncoated, which means it’ll age, getting darker and richer over time. We love the patina, but if you want to restore brass to its original luster, just use some brass polish. 

Put the coasters to good use and decorate them with a beautiful Green Light cocktail: Combine ½ ounce fresh cucumber juice, ½ ounce fresh lime juice, 1¼ ounces Celebration Distillation Crystal Rum and ½ ounce light simple syrup (1 part sugar, 2 parts water) in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Fine strain into a coupe glass and garnish with cucumber slice.

Just remember: shaken, not shtirred.
