By all means, if you a) are strong enough to open metal shakers with no problem, or b) own one that for whatever magical reason doesn't stick, more power to you, and keep doing what you're doing.

For me, the most gorgeous, perfect shaker doesn't do me one whit of good if I can't get my drink out of it.



Humu, I must admit that I do like your plastic bottle for a shaker, it looks cool and would make much less of a mess.

When I start 'tending in my carpeted living room I will definitely try one of these, else I'll have one heck of a soggy mess on my hands!

Mahalo for the suggestion, much appreciated

2 cents from a newbie:

we bought a fancy metal shaker from a bar/ restaurant supplier, for the simple reason that it looked like it would do a better job than the fancy designer ones we found at the interior-design store. We lived in Jerusalem at the time and those are the only places where we found shakers that seemed somewhat decent. Plus, the one we got was cheaper than the designer-brand one.

When there's a problem opening the lid, we take off the cap and release the pressure and everything's fine.

K.

I have an old aluminum shaker, from the 1934 'Century of Progress'. It has a bunch of recipes on the side, without all the fancy stuff you kids are drinking nowadays. Most call for gin, 'whisky', or rye. I will scan or post them if anyone is interested.

At least you can use an authentic Hawaiian rum, to make the trouble of using the shaker worthwhile; improve your tiki drinks with the best rum on the planet



Unfortunately your SPAM ADS leave a bad taste in my mouth.

Hey there -

Some worthwhile talk about shakers is happening here, but seeing as how this is a thread about shaker alternatives, it's kinda muddying the waters.

Traditional shakers *definitely* deserve at least one thread of their own, probably a few, so I've started one for you guys to talk about shakers and post pictures & tips and what have you:

All the Cool Kids use Shakers

Last night I became aware of the professional way to unstick a frozen-stuck cocktail shaker.

I was mixing drinks at a party and my bar-mate happened to be a professional bartender. My cocktail shaker had become frozen entirely shut and I could not open it to save my life, much less make the next drink.

My bar-mate simply took the shaker firmly in hand and went to the wooden fence (we were in a backyard) and whacked the shaker against one of the fence's 2x4s. A good solid whack.

Came right apart! And no harm to the shaker.

Well, at least I'm glad my "Mark of the Beast" post was about something important!
