Shake and Strain a Drink

Mixing cocktails in a shaker is a great way to prepare on-the-rocks cocktails. It’s worth investing in a quality shaker and strainer for the best results. Practice a few rounds before guests arrive so you have the best technique. We love using shakers at parties because it offers a chance for you to have a one-on-one conversation with your guests as you concoct their personal cocktails.

  • You’ll Need:
  • Your glass with drink ingredients and ice in it
  • Metal shaker or tin
  • Strainer
  • Step 1

    Pour contents of the glass into the shaker. Seal the shaker by lining up the edge of the glass with the edge of the shaker at an angle. Give the glass a tap with your palm to ensure a seal. You’ll know it’s sealed when you can pick up the shaker by the mixing glass. Shake for 15-20 seconds.

  • Step 2

    To break the seal, turn the mixer and glass horizontally and push the side of the glass upwards. Place strainer on top of shaker. With the strainer pressed against the tin, pour the drink into your serving glass.
