In Japan, a three-piece cobbler shaker like this one is essential for the Hard Shake, a cocktail shaking technique created by legendary bartender Kazuo Uyeda. But for more practical reasons, this shaker is ideal for its smaller size-- it fits comfortably to your hand, and the lightness makes your 30-second shake more enjoyable and fun. Bring bling into your shake! It will surely impress all your guests, and make your cocktails magical!
The cobbler is what most of us think of when we think of a
cocktail shaker. Created in the late 19th century, the cobbler
shaker is the type found in most home bars, and this near-ubiquity
has made it an iconic piece of home entertaining. They come in a
variety of sizes, materials, and range from the simple to the
ornate. Yet most cobbler shakers are comprised the same way, made
of three detachable pieces: the base cup which holds the ice and
drink ingredients, a lid with built-in strainer, and a cap that
fits over the strainer for when you’re shaking. To make
stirred cocktails you detach the top, stir the ingredients in the
base, then replace the top to strain. It’s not the most ideal
for stirred drinks but it gets the job done.
