Cocktail Shaker

A shaker comprises 2 parts. The first is the tumbler in which the liquid is actually mixed and the second is the top. Some shakers come with strainers which are built into the top. Shakers are usually of two types. The first being what is called a Boston shaker which has a glass bowl for visual display of the liquid (and which chills faster) and the second being a classic 3 piece shaker.

A Bar spoon is useful for mixing drinks and can also double up as a muddler – something to crush particular ingredients – say mint leaves when you’re making a Mojito.

A strainer is for use when the cocktail shaker doesn’t come with a built in one. Keeps the ice and other pulpy parts of fruit juices out of your drink.
