We just got a new cobbler shaker in the shop – the Birdy CS500! It's got a cool sounding name and a sleek, sexy design that helps chill drinks and prevents watery cocktails. But we were completely sold on the Birdy after our friend Jim Meehan of beloved NYC speakeasy, Please Don't Tell (PDT), gave it his stamp of approval.

"Arguably the easiest shaker to start with, the cobbler shaker is the most difficult to master, which is why I love the Birdy," Jim told us. "Mix equal parts Savoy Hotel American Bar Manager Erik Lorincz's elegance and attention to detail with peerless Japanese steel fabrication and you get one beautiful piece of machinery."

Hello, Birdy and bye bye, diluted drinks!
