5 Different Ways To Use Cocktail Shakers

so couple of weeks ago I showed you this
pretty cool trick with the cobbler
shaker and seems like you guys really
liked it but if you haven’t watched it
I’m going to leave a link right here
today I will show you a few useful hacks
with the same shaker that you can use
while making your cocktail first one you
can serve a cocktail inside a shaker I
think it’s pretty cool way to stand out
it’s definitely unique
it definitely looks better when you use
the crushed eyes
so just garnish with a mint sprig it’s
ready if you would like to make dis
garnish even more creative check out the
next hack we will need an orange cutting
board let’s make it zest really quick
just don’t make it too thin so we need a
little a little bit bigger something
like that and now you take the middle
part you can use from this shaker or you
can use it in a smaller one so here’s
what you need to do just take your set
and then squeeze it really hard and
power it a few times so and make this
perfect circle now you can just squeeze
it or place it somewhere up on top like
something like this on the side or you
can use speed I’m using metal but you
can use anything like do this and then
you can place it right here or you can
just put it on top you definitely gonna
love next one
so you see smokey drinks really popular
everybody loves them
you make one somebody see the
presentation and they askin for the same
but you actually can infuse your
cocktail with smoke right inside the
shaker medium size or smaller shakers
totally would work depends on what
cocktail you’re going to serve in it
the only inconvenient think about it
once you start actually using this
shaker as your infuser you are no longer
can use it as an actual shaker to shake
drinks just because this part will be
burnt but I’ll show you exactly how it
works you have your cocktail ready and
any cocktail that you would like to
infuse we’re gonna close it with just
middle part and then prepare let’s say
you can use any wood but the thing is
you wouldn’t be able to use something
like this you see the small wood that
would actually go through this holes but
what you can use definitely a nice I’m
gonna put like a few pieces now like you
see this piece is bigger you can use one
or two
or also you can use cinnamon so
basically anything that just bigger and
want to go through the whole now we’re
gonna take lighter
and then just stir it gently it’s really
cool effect when you open it in front of
the guest or also if you do a little bit
to the table so just make sure it don’t
hold this top part and then just open it
in front of the guest when it’s all
smoked let me know any comments guys
what do you think about this okay next
what you probably didn’t know that this
top is exactly one ounce all the way to
the top let’s say for any reasons you
don’t have a jigger on you and you need
to pour exactly one ounce or two ounces
picking members and this is exactly one
ounce of course there’s different
shakers for example the bigger one more
than just one ounce but you can see is
much bigger
probably like I’d say ounce and a half
but if you guys would like to get this
shaker I think it cost almost like $15
or so plus delivery I’m going to leave a
link for you in the description next if
for any reasons you guys don’t have
handy a squeezer cut lime in half take
the middle part put it like this upside
down put lime inside and then just using
maybe muddler squeeze it there so you
can see like it’s squeezing really well
now you have juice right here and
completely squeezed lime so the way is
actually easier to squeeze rather than
you would be squeezing with your hands
it works perfectly separated easily no
any comments with other creative ways
you guys use your cobbler shaker
maybe you also just like me wearing it
is the jewelry always take me to you a
creative work on Instagram
I definitely love to go check out and
leave your comment don’t forget to Like
subscribe and I’ll see you in the next
video

Cocktail Shaker Buyers’ Guide

How to use a cocktail shaker?

Start making a cocktail by pouring all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and filling the rest with ice. Secure the lid tightly, and hold it with one hand. The other hand should be on the bottom piece. Shake it vigorously over the shoulder and slowly count to ten or until you notice the outside of the shaker frosting up. Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass and serve. Be careful not to overfill the shaker or the drink might spill during shaking. When making cocktails with many ingredients, or ingredients that do not mix well, shake harder and longer. For example egg cocktails should be mixed for at least 30 seconds and the ice should be added on the second shake.

How to use a Boston shaker?

The Boston shaker consists of two parts, a mixing glass, and a metal tumbler. A hawthorn strainer may also be used as an accessory with a Boston shaker. To start, put all your ingredients into the glass section of the shaker and fill up to halfway with ice. Now place the metal tumbler over the glass at a slight angle. Using the heel of your hand, hit the upturned part of the metal tumbler a few times to make sure it is a tight fit while holding the glass base steady. Turn the whole thing upside down, put one hand on the bottom of the metal tumbler and the other hand across the top of the glass and shake hard. After 30 seconds of shaking, put the shaker back down, with the metal side down and whack the rim to open the seal. Now put the hawthorn strainer over the metal tumbler and fit in inside the shaker lip. Hold the shaker in one hand with a finger securing the strainer in place and slowly pour out the cocktail and serve.
