Step up Your Home Bartending Game With a Top Cocktail Shaker

By Samantha MacAvoy of Good Housekeeping | Slide 2 of 14: $11.99Shop NowSometimes, simple is best. That’s what you get from this basic yet highly functional Boston shaker — the preferred shaker style of many professional bartenders. This streamlined and durable shaker from Cocktail Kingdom can churn out drinks quickly thanks to its simple, sturdy and easy-to-clean design. Both tins are weighted, which adds heft and creates a more secure seal than lighter tins. Even better? It's easier on your arms — the weight of the shaker means you don't have to shake as vigorously to incorporate your ingredients. In our testing, we found those with smaller hands preferred this product over others, as it wasn’t overly large or heavy. The small tin easily fit into the larger one and we found they were easy to separate after shaking. Just note, they are sold separately so you will have to purchase the small weighted shaking tin to complete your set.
