In Japan, a three-piece cobbler shaker like this one is essential for the Hard Shake, a cocktail shaking technique created by legendary bartender Kazuo Uyeda. But for more practical reasons, this shaker is ideal for its smaller size – it fits comfortably in your hand, and the lightness makes your 30-second shake more enjoyable and fun. Bring bling into your shake! It'll surely impress all your guests, and make your cocktails magical!
