Shaken Not Stirred

*I received this free for reviewing purposes. All opinions are 100 % my own*

The art of making a good cocktail requires not only good materials (sorry, that super cheap vodka isn't going to cut it) but the right tools for the job. You can't roast a turkey without a roast pan and you can't make a martini without a cocktail shaker. With the holidays and the associated parties upon us it might be time to update your home bar or maybe you have a friend who likes to make a stiff drink or two. A nice new cocktail shaker by Mixologist World is just what you need.

This set comes with a nice and heavy metal cocktail shaker, a jigger for measuring, and a a set of recipes to make classic and delicious drinks to wow your friends. The size is just right to hold a ton of ice while making your drink, which is key to a perfectly blended and chilled adult beverage. The metal also helps to evenly distribute the chill, something that cheap plastic shaker you've had since college just can't do. Seriously, it's time to ban the plastic shakers.

The jigger is an often ignored necessity that will be a welcome addition to your bar. Unless you are a professional bartender and can measure out an ounce in your sleep you will need something to quickly and efficiently measure the alcohol for your drinks. While I like a strong drink as much as the next person, too much (or too little) of something can throw the whole cocktail out of balance.

This is a really nice set and I already know someone who will be getting their very own for Christmas this year. If you would like to purchase one for yourself they are available here for $25.97 with free Prime shipping.
