Description

If you’re looking for the ultimate workhorse of a cocktail shaker, this is it.

I know it looks exactly like every other Boston Shaker out there, but here’s what makes it different:

Made from the Good Stuff
This shaker is made from Stainless Steel 304, which is “food grade” and really high quality. That means no weird rust spots appearing – the first or thousandth time through the dishwasher. It’s also a much safer alternative to a Boston Shaker with a glass cup. No glass to break here!

Weighted / Weighted Combination
Look closely at the picture of the shaker – see that seam around the bottom of each cup? That’s a weight that’s been welded to the bottom. It adds stability and heft. If you’re brand new to cocktails, I’d recommend our weighted / unweighted shaker to start – it’s a bit easier to learn. But if you’re doing Flair bartending or just used to a weighted / weighted set, then this one will definitely be a better choice.

Circle Welded
Look again at those weights. 99% of weighted shaker tins out there have been welded in just a couple of spots. Over time, water sneaks in, weakens the weld, and eventually the weight falls off. (Hopefully NOT when you’re shaking it!)  We spoke with our factory and asked them to weld the weight allllll the way around. So there’s no way for water to get in, and no way that weight will ever fall off!

Really Really Ridiculously Good Looking.
There’s a reason you see pro bartenders using Boston Shakers. They seal better and don’t leak. Whether your “bar” is a kitchen counter, bar cart or commercial cocktail bar, this shaker will be right at home.

Psst, Pro Bartenders:
I know you know your shakers – this one won’t let you down. It was designed by a disgruntled bartender to be the best! It nests perfectly, handles commercial dishwashers like a pro, and will be your trusty sidekick when you’re deep in the weeds. I promise!

How to

1) Add Ingredients and Shake
First, add your ingredients to the shaker with ice. Then invert the other cup over the first and give it a “whack” with your palm. The shakers will seal tightly together and are ready to shake!

2) Break Open the Seal
Open the sealed shaker by placing on your bar and holding with one hand. Hit the opposite side firmly with your palm to crack the seal and open.

3) Strain and Enjoy
Place your Hawthorne Strainer in the top of the shaker and strain into the glass. Voila! Your delicious cocktail is ready to enjoy.

The only shaker you’ll ever need, hands down!

Great shaker, it’s not insulated like my other one that’s a 3 piece single cup, so it gets cold. It cleans easy, has great balance too. One day I’ll try some bar tricks with it ;) I will say, once you pop them together and shake they become kind of difficult to get apart. You have to “WHACK” it pretty hard and punching it helps too. Overall a fantastic shaker and worth the money.

Great professional shaker set

I've been elevating my home bartending game, and a high-end professional bartender friend recommended this set. The fact that they're weighted isn't very noticeable, but it helps in a subtle way. These tins handle really well, and I like them much better than my old glass and tin Boston shaker set. The only downside to double-tins over glass-and-tin is that the double tin is a little harder to separate after shaking a drink. You have to know how and where to whack it.

Great Boston Shaker

I like this Boston Shaker so much better than the 3 piece one that I had. It is so easy to use and is larger so you can mix enough for 2 drinks. Also very easy to clean. Highly recommended!

Top shelf shaker set!

I've had other shaker sets before, but nothing like this! These are heavy...heavy enough to chip ice during the shake! Love, love, love this set!

Don't fear the Shaker

In my journey to build a home bar during Covid, I did some extensive research online for equipment. Initially, I purchased a cheap tin and glass shaker from a retailer which I wound up returning after learning that a double weighted tin Boston Shaker does a better and quicker job at chilling drinks. With no prior experience using a shaker, I am pleased to say that I mastered quickly after watching a couple of videos on-line. It is best to practice with just water and ice first to make sure that you have the correct seal so as not to waste precious inventory. Step 1 - add your liquids to the smaller tin. Step 2 - add your ice to the larger tin. Step 3 - pour liquids into the larger tin. Step 4 - insert the smaller tin into the larger tin keeping one side of the smaller tin flush or even with the side of the larger tin when inserted so you essentially have a straight line running end to end. Step 5 - give the smaller tin a couple of strikes with the palm to form a seal. Step 6 - pickup and hold the ends of both tins pushing firmly together and shake over your shoulder for 15 - 20 seconds. Step 7 - strain into the appropriate glass depending on your cocktail and that's it! Seriously, don't fear the shaker. A double weighted Boston shaker is the only way to go. The Bar Above Boston Shaker has worked out nicely. So far I have made Chocolate Martinis, Aviation, and Singapore Slings. On to the tiki drinks for Spring. Seriously, there is not need to fear the shaker if you are new to this sport.
