Swanky Martini Sets. Cue Mad Men.

There’s something about a freshly stirred Manhattan, straight from pitcher to glass, that makes Happy Hours and 3-martini lunches at home so much more inviting.

If you want to recreate the cool ’60s cocktail vibe right in your own living room, try one of these mod martini sets. For a truly authentic experience, don’t forget to invite the chain smokers and inter-office adulterers.

Every now and then you come across something that’s ugly-cute, so ugly it’s cute. This cocktail set, which is perfect for martinis, looks swanky in your urban digs. Call for pricing (that’s not a good sign).

These little roly-poly numbers work perfectly for mezcal and ice cream, together or separately.

We love the modern spin of the stemless glasses with jeweled bottoms. Simple, easy on the eyes and easier on the pocketbook. Urban Living Shop, $36 for the set of four glasses, pitcher and stirrer.

No, those aren't cosmos. Don't even think about serving a pomegranate-based martini in a swanky set.

Perfect for those precious cocktails that need be to sipped cold — these 4 1/4-inch-tall glasses only hold about that much. Vintage, chrome, art-deco … we’ll take it. $30 for the set.

There's something regal about glamming up your happy hour with polished stemware and pitchers.

Six mini hand-blown glasses and a matching pitcher with a very Jetsons-are-coming-to-Happy-Hour vibe. Claims to be mid-century, but we just like the look of them. Etsy, $28 for the set.

A smoky glass pitcher lends itself to absinthe-based cocktails. Bring your own stirrer — this set doesn't come with it.
