How to Shake & Strain

Shake and strain a cocktail properly by following these easy steps. This process helps combine ingredients, chill your cocktail faster and slightly dilute it.

  1. Place liquid ingredients into the metal tin of a cocktail shaker.
  2. Place the other tin on top and tap to form a tight seal.
  3. Hold the shaker horizontally with both hands and shake back and forth for 10-15 seconds.
  4. Tap the side of the tin with ingredients in it to release the seal.
  5. Place a strainer over the top of the tin, holding it down with your index finger and gently pour the chilled cocktail into a glass.
  6. Enjoy your shaken, not stirred, cocktail!
