But can you really call something a craze even if it's been around since before prohibition? The cocktail shaker is a must in every bar set up. What should you buy?
There are 3 types of shakers. The one you'll see most in bars -- which looks like 2 glasses placed one inside the other -- is called a Boston shaker. Another called the French shaker is barely used.
Drop a 1/2 oz of Scotch, a 1/2 oz of amaretto and 1 oz of Lillet Rouge in the shaker. Get ready a martini or rocks glass. Or a fox glass ... More on that later.
