Cocktail Hack Part Three: Shaker

Have you ever wondered why some drink call for using a shaker and some don’t? Using a shaker helps mix liquids with different viscosities. You have your spirits, then fruit juices, sometime a dairy product like cream of eggnog, and sometimes even eggs. These need to be properly mixed, aerated and to have a nice frothy icy texture. Something that just doesn’t happen when you pour over ice.

But what happens if you’re traveling, visiting a friend, and to your horror they don’t have a shaker? Tumbler shaker 5114 Use a Traveler or Tumbler Mug!
