Bask in its pink glory.

Pro Tip

Cocktail Shakers: How to choose and use


Cocktail shakers are an invaluable tool when you want to mix up drinks containing alcohol, juices, and syrups like our Summer Cosmo recipe; a really distinct take on a vodka Cointreau.


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
