Shake, shake, shake!

Three-piece shakers like this one are preferred by bartenders (and home cocktail shaker-uppers) who use the “hard shake” technique—a move pioneered by the renowned Japanese bartender Kazuo Ueda to combine drink ingredients and ice that are then strained into a glass. Add ice and spirits to the base of this matte gold shaker, fit on the strainer, and pop on the rounded cap—then shake like mad, remove the cap, and pour like a pro. Holding nearly 14 ounces, this shaker is the perfect size for making two lowball cocktails. And just to get it out there, we’re obsessed with the matte gold finish.
