Umami Mart Helps Mix It Up For Drinkers
All through December, SFoodie is bringing you local gift ideas for the food obsessives in your life.
Umami Mart The Goldfinger Set at Umami Mart.
Oakland's Umami Mart (815 Broadway) has a ton of gifts for the mixologist in your life -- the one who hates the term mixologist. The online and physical shop both carry an array of Japanese strainers, mixing glasses, carafes, jiggers, bitters bottles, and more specific tools for making stylish drinks.
Right now, Umami is running sales on toolkits and sets aimed at creating liquid courage. For example, and timed very close to the new James Bond film, is the Goldfinger Set (regularly $175; on sale for $150), which contains a gold shaker, gold jigger, two Yarai highball glasses, and a spherical ice tray for the shaken, not stirred lifestyle.
Be duly forewarned that this is the type of place where you'll be incredibly tempted to find a little something for yourself in the midst of your holiday shopping.
