Why You Should use a Cocktail Shaker for Your Home Bar

A cocktail shaker allows you to mix and chill all ingredients that are going into your cocktail. Most cocktails require different types of alcohols, syrups, juices, and sometimes even coffee, dairy and egg whites. It’s paramount that these ingredients blend seamlessly together. A cocktail shaker will ensure this by aerating and diluting your drink so that you strike the perfect smooth and balanced texture.
Cocktail shakers also allow you to chill your beverage, lowering the temperature of your drink much faster than just stirring it would.
