Tigerlily --

If it is a glass shaker with an aluminum top, tap the shaker gently against a hard edge of the bar, then try to twist it off.

If it is an all-aluminum shaker, rap the shaker rather smartly against the side of the bar, then twist the top off.

I was with a professional bartender at an outdoors party, helping him make drinks, and whenever he ran into a balky shaker he would just smack it against the nearby fence to get it loose.

You certainly recognize Granny from Beverly Hillbilly's, right? The other one was my 3rd grade teacher...she has cost me thousands in therapy.

I use a stainless steel milkshake mixer cup with a commercial pint glass. If it ever happens to break, so what. The old collectable glass shakers with aluminum lids never really worked well when new and they sure don't work with a little age and corrosion on them so they stay on a display shelf. Just go to a restaurant and bar supply store and load up on cheap measuring jiggers, bar spoons, pourers, muddlers, shake tins, glassware etc. If they require you to have an account, to give them something to put in the computer, just say you are a new caterer and do not have a tax number yet. Works like a charm. Plus, this stuff lasts forever in the home since it is designed for commercial use in bars.

One of the Edmonton ones, bbm. There are Value Village/Savers stores all over Canada, the U.S. and Australia.

... a selection of shakers and accessories new and old, ARGGGGGGH! I'm short of space so I'm not only out of new shelf space but am packing additional stuff away because it's too crowded in the bar!

Wow, nice collection. What is that big one there in the middle, about the size of a small pumpkin?

Is that an ice bucket?

Also, I see a hand-crank ice crusher. Love it, love it.

I recognize that as the classic penguin ice bucket.

It's a standard item all home bars should have.

Yes its a penguin hot-cold server to keep casseroles warm or use as an ice bucket, I shelled out 20 bux for one once but have since found 2 more for 12 bux or so, pretty easy to find for cheap with persistence. I have a collection of daisy rocket shaped hand crank crushers too, I'll get some more stuff out and do another pic. Thanks for the interest.

I just bought the Tiki Farm 'Cobbler' style shaker:


And although it was easy to shake with, I found that I couldn't strain the liquid nearly fast enough. It does have a nice large capacity for bigger drinks, and it's quite swank with those grip-able ceramic tikis on either side.

I was hoping to make a permanent switch to a capped model to speed up the shaking/straining process, but instead I still prefer my cheap Ikea Groggy 'Boston' style shaker(seen below) with my expensive Villeroy & Bosch Strainer.

"Groggy" shaker from Ikea.

It's cheap but does the job nicely, and the glass part has a rubber rim that seals but releases fairly easily.

The sensations are part of the whole mixing experience for me; the cold of the metal, the clink of the ice, the drips, yes, sometimes there are drips. All part of the territory. If you don't come out wet and sticky, what's the point?



And now! See me wet and sticky, LIVE! at the Jet City Junket, this September right around the time of Tiki Art Now 3 in Seattle.

This may seem like a silly question....

If you look at the picture from Tikiwahine, the top fits INto the shaker. The last shaker I used where the top fit in like that had me wearing as much of the cocktail as I what I poured. I now have the same Groggy from Ikea that I love as well as a more traditional shaker that has a top that fits ONto the shaker, the top covers the bottom.

So, my question is... Am I just an idiot when it comes to shaking a drink or have any of you had the problem with leaks and spills from your shaker when the top fits into the base versus when the top fits over the base.
