Why do I like this cocktail shaker so much? While the three-part cocktail shaker design, which includes a built-in strainer, has been around for ages, OXO found a way to improve it. Like a high-end water bottle or coffee cup, the shaker has a double wall that keeps drinks super cool, but also allows you to hold it without freezing your hand. It has an 18-ounce capacity, which is more than enough room to make several drinks at one time.
The brushed stainless steel shaker is tapered, making it easy to grip in one hand, and there is a rubber coating around the cap. The cap is also a jigger, with half-ounce, ¾-ounce, and 1-ounce marks. I initially thought I’d never use this feature, but it’s actually ingenious. I never need to search for my jigger. And unlike many other shakers that I’ve used, the cap stays on no matter how hard I shake and comes off easily when I’m ready to pour no matter how cold things get.
Ever since I received this cocktail shaker, I’ve found myself fixing more drinks than ever—and having a lot of fun while doing so.
