Drinking Outside the Box
ralph Lauren raises the bar on the desktop bar.
Think OF RALPH LAUREN’S Vanderbilt Mixologist Box as a cocktail humidor flled with the ultimate tool kit for alcohol alchemists. Produced in a limited edition of 100, the $4,995 case comes in a rosewood veneer and features more than a dozen items, including a crystal ice bucket, a Laguiole corkscrew, a silver-plated cocktail shaker, a Boston strainer and a hickory cutting board. If you want cocktail inspiration, it even has a crocodile-embossed leather mixology book. But all you really need is your favorite bottle—and a glass.
