Cocktail shakers - a must have for your home bar
Mixed drinks are both fun to make and delicious to drink. Whether you're just starting out in the fascinating world of mixology or are a seasoned pro, a good cocktail shaker is key to creating beautifully flavoured iced beverages that everyone will love.
The purpose of a cocktail shaker is to mix and chill cocktails that contain ingredients such as alcohol, syrup, juices and dairy products that otherwise do not mix well together. Shaking the device aerates the drink and blends the ingredients with ice to cool it down and ensure a balanced, smooth texture and flavour with perfect dilution.
Choosing the right shaker for you
Before adding a cocktail shaker to your barware collection, consider these factors to help choose the right one for your needs:
Material - Cocktail shakers can be made from stainless steel, glass, copper, acrylic and more.
Type - A Cobbler Shaker is ideal for beginners as it is very easy to use while a Boston Shaker is preferred by professionals for mixing multiple drinks at a time.
Weight - A weighted shaker has a tighter seal and is easier to shake but can get heavy if mixing many drinks.
Capacity - Do you plan on making one drink at a time or several for a group of people?
Design - There are sleek and stylish cocktail shakers, decorative shakers, coloured ones and more.
Stainless steel cocktail shakers
A stainless steel cocktail shaker is excellent for beginners as they are durable, easy to use, chill drinks quickly and often come with a built-in strainer. Stainless steel also looks modern and stylish in a contemporary home bar.
Check out our stainless steel cocktail shakers, such as the Chef Inox Cobbler Cocktail Shaker 3pc with strainer, lid and shaker or try the Bartender Barware Stainless Steel Double Wall Cocktail Shaker for keeping hands free from icy condensation while shaking.

What do you use cocktail shakers for?
A cocktail shaker is an essential bar tool if you plan on making alcoholic mixed drinks. When the drink is shaken inside the cocktail shaker with ice, the ingredients are mixed, aerated, diluted and chilled so that they are ready to drink. If the cocktail contains milk or egg whites, shaking the tumbler will form a nice foam on top of the drink. The tumbler itself can also be used as a glass for making stirred drinks.
