A cocktail shaker may be used just like cocktail glasses, a jigger, bar spoon or further cocktail accessories like glass straws in no bar is missing. The great advantage of cocktail shakers is that cocktails can be mixed quickly and easily without additional technical equipment. Depending on the size of the bar and the number of guests, bartenders and barkeepers need quite a bit of stamina to use them. Thus, after shaking a few dozen cocktails, it can become exhausting to operate the cocktail shaker. But that is already the only "disadvantage" of the manual shaker.
The Boston Shaker is the simplest variant of the cocktail shaker. It consists of a metal cup and a cocktail glass. All ingredients for the cocktail are put into the metal cup. Then the glass is put on and the cocktail is shaken. After that, the drink can be served immediately without repouring.
The Cobbler Shaker consists of three parts and is made of stainless steel. In the large cup, the ingredients for the cocktail can be filled. A small cup is attached to the top cover. It holds between one and three centiliters, ideal for measuring spirits for the cocktail. After plugging the cocktail can be shaken. Then simply remove the cap and pour the cocktail into the glass. Often, a strainer is also integrated in the cobbler shaker, so that no separate cocktail strainer is needed.
The Tin Tin Shaker consists of two metal cups of different sizes. They are simply put together for mixing. A variant to the Tin in Tin Shaker is the so-called Parisian Shaker or French Shaker. In these shakers, the upper cup is even smaller and can be used as a bar measure for spirits.
Depending on the design, cocktail shakers are additionally equipped with a strainer. This is important when fruits or other ingredients are mixed in the shaker. When pouring, this prevents fruit peels from getting into the glass.
If you want to buy cocktail shakers, you should pay attention when buying Boston shakers that they may need several mixing glasses. If you choose stainless steel cocktail shakers, you will benefit from a high-quality metal cup that is easy to clean.
When buying, also pay attention to the capacity of the mixing bowl. If you want to do without a bar strainer, select a cocktail shaker with an integrated strainer.
