The Curated Kitchen

Consider these necessary accessories.

The Purifier: Soma’s glass carafe is the most aesthetically pleasing water filter on the market. $50 ($13 a filter);

The Automatic Bartender: Event planner Bronson van Wyck’s five Arrowhead Farms cocktail mixes impress at a party—and the day after (see: Bloody Mary mix). $30;

The Flavor Enhancer: Chef Eric Ripert of New York’s Le Bernardin and spice shop La Boîte just created three spices for the home chef; the Riviera Herbs work best with Ripert’s speciality, fish. $15; 724 11th Ave.;

The Sipping Rum: Bacardi’s limited-edition Facundo rums—one light, three dark—are intended to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, not mixed. From $45;
