Pro Tip

Cocktail Shaker

Cocktail shakers are an invaluable tool when you want to mix up drinks containing alcohol, juices, and syrups, like our watermelon vodka drink. They come in two basic styles: a three-piece shaker and a two-piece Boston shaker. Neither are cocktail specific, so it’s really a matter of personal preference.

Follow these six simple steps to shake up the perfect cocktail:

1 Pour the ingredients into your chosen shaker

2 Fill the shaker with ice

3 Secure the lid or shaker tin tightly

4 Hold the shaker with both hands (one on each piece) and shake vigorously over your shoulder

5 Shake for a slow count of ten or until the outside of the shaker frosts up

6 Strain your cocktail into a chilled glass. If you’re preparing a cocktail served on the rocks always strain over lots of fresh ice

A cocktail shaker is a must have for creating cocktails with EFFEN vodka.
Shake, stir, sip: enjoy a moment of pure pleasure
