(Product Review) Cocktail Shaker Set -Premium Bartender Kit in a Luxury Bag: Martini Bar Shaker,Jigger,2 Liquor Pourers & ebook : 100 Cocktail Drinks Recipes - Lifetime Guarantee on all the Barware Tools by SHIKSHOOK
The Cocktail Shaker Set -Premium Bartender Kit in a Luxury Bag: Martini Bar Shaker,Jigger,2 Liquor Pourers & ebook : 100 Cocktail Drinks Recipes - Lifetime Guarantee on all the Barware Tools by SHIKSHOOK is the complete package, everything you need to get started mixing your own drinks, except for the alcohol and mixers of course.
The shaker is a nice size, holding almost 10 cups of your favorite beverage. It is made of stainless steel, so it is solid and you will never need to worry about rust. It also looks very nice, maybe because I really like shiny things.
It comes with a double jigger which makes measuring your ingredients a breeze. There are also two pour spouts which you can use with your favorite alcohols, and a very nice looking velvet pouch to carry it in. Not only that but they also offer an eBook which provides you with recipes for 100 cocktail drinks.
I wish that registering with their website was not required in order to access the eBook, but when you register it also activates a lifetime warranty for the product, so I guess it is worth it in the long run. Not that I expect that anything would break on such an item, but it is always good to be protected. Using the eBook, I did get to try out a couple of new drinks although I was already familiar with many of them since my sister used to be a bartender.
The shaker worked well for measuring and mixing the drinks, and I love that the strainer top can be used to filter out fruit pieces, ice, or whatever else you want strained out of your drinks. It is also very easy to wash either by hand or in the dishwasher. Personally, I prefer to wash it by hand since I think it will stay looking nicer for longer. I don't know this for certain, but from past experience with another stainless steel item, it may lose a bit of it's shine if washed in the dishwasher frequently. This is a very nice set to keep for yourself or to give as a gift. I am very happy with it and would recommend it to others.
