Drink shakers are used primarily to make cocktails taste consistent from the first sip to the last. Of course, you can make a cocktail by mixing up the drinks, adding ice and stirring it up in a glass. But drinks take a little time to blend well, and ice takes some time to melt, so that by the time you are finishing your drink, it’s a fair bet that your drink will be tasting pretty flat. On the other hand, if you use a cocktail shaker, your cocktail will taste consistent throughout. The cocktail shaker is therefore a good tool to make a delicious drink.
At first you may think that drink shakers are not only a useless tool as you can achieve the same result by stirring your drink in a glass. And you may think it is too expensive too. Well, the proof of the pudding is in eating it. You need to try one to understand the difference it makes to your cocktail. First buy an inexpensive one, which you can get for around Rs. 200, and if you feel that it improves the taste and consistency of your drink, then you can go for an expensive durable one, which can cost you up to Rs. 2500. Archies, Dynore, Elan and God’s Kitchen are some of the brands making them. Also, depending on your preference, you can go for brass, copper, glass or plastic drink shakers.
The Boston cocktail shaker consists of a metal glass and a glass mixing tumbler which, when inverted on top of the steel glass, fits into the rim, thus making it easy to shake your drink without spilling it out. The glass part is usually heat-tempered, thus allowing the drink with ice cubes to mix evenly. It is easy to use this cocktail shaker, and is thus preferred by many.
This is a cocktail shaker that has three parts. It has the main tumbler which is the shaker, then it has a strainer and a lid. It is easy to use, and does not require a separate strainer as it already comes with one inside it. It is ideal for preparing a fruit shake, as it easily separates all the seeds and fibrous material of fruits from the drink.
This one looks similar to the Boston drink shaker, but both parts are made of metal. It is probably the oldest kind of drink shaker and is slowly going out of use. It has almost become an antique piece, and it can be very difficult to fine one on the market or online. But it is a beautiful cocktail shaker to look at and would be the pride of any bar.
