Japanese Copper Cocktail Shaker
Master the hard shake.
Japanese bartenders and mixologists have been in the spotlight for the past few years, gaining recognition in world cocktail championships for their presentation, precision, professionalism, shaking techniques, and of course, high quality bar tools. Just as Japanese knives have become the preferred choice among many chefs and cooks around the world, Japanese bar tools have started to become the top choice for bartenders and mixologists worldwide.
This small copper shaker is preferred by bartenders who aspire to perfect the “hard shake,” a technique that allows you to aerate the drink and reduce the harshness of the alcohol for a smoother cocktail. Each part of this three-piece set fits snugly together to offer stability and comfort each time you use it. Holding just over 12 ounces, this petite shaker is the perfect size for a single cocktail.
