How To Choose The Perfect Cocktail Shaker
There is really no right or wrong in choosing a shaker. The different types of cocktail shakers all give the same result; a shaken cocktail. It all comes down to three details: design, versatility and the volume of liquids. Let’s take a look at the two main types of cocktail shakers.
The cobbler shaker is the most popular and the most common choice for the home bartender. A cobbler shaker consists of three parts, a metal tumbler, a metal lid with a built-in strainer, and a cap to cover the strainer. This shaker is easy to use, simply add liquids and ice, place the top with the strainer and cap on top of the tumbler and shake. You can even get a bit fancy and use this type with only one hand! When you are finished shaking, pop off the cap and pour your cocktail into a glass. The real (but occasional) challenge with this type of cocktail shaker is to separate the top with the strainer from the tumbler. Sometimes a good knock on the side of the shaker will do. Other times, the only way to get it off is by a combination of martial arts and black magic.
Popular with many professional bartenders is the Boston shaker. Once you’ve gotten the hang of your cobbler shaker, this should be the second shaker you buy for your home bar. The Boston shaker consists of two parts; a mixing glass and a metal tumbler. The ingredients are poured into the tumbler, the mixing-glass is then placed on top and the pair are squeezed together to create a seal. Then, using two hands, the drink is mixed. This is the theatrical part you see when ordering at a bar. Using the Boston shaker requires two hands which can be challenging in a crowded setting but the two halves are easier to separate than the cobbler shaker. To separate, give the metal tumbler a knock right where the two parts meet and you’re ready to serve!
With a good cocktail shaker and a little bit of flair, amazing and delicious cocktails are only a shake away!
