A Brief History of the Cocktail Shaker

Versions of cocktail shakers have existed for thousands of years. In ancient Mexico and South America, it’s believed that hollowed-out gourds were used to add spices and sweeteners to drinks. Today, bartenders use one of three types of shaker: the Boston shaker, the Parisian shaker, or the cobbler shaker.

A two-part metal shaker is better known as a French or Parisian shaker. At some point in the late 19th century, an inventor built a strainer into a Parisian shaker to make a combination shaker, now known as a cobbler shaker.

Shaking a cocktail with ice in a shaker allows the ingredients to chill, dilute a bit and mix well, achieving the ideal combination of taste and texture. This is why the cocktail shaker is the essential tool for your bar cart.

Whether you want to shake up this fruity margarita or a bright Cosmo, your cocktail shaker is certainly going to be your most used piece of bar equipment. Thankfully, these days you won’t have to pay much to get a durable and high-quality cocktail shaker set!
