Why shake? Well, you use a shaker because you want to chill and mix your drinks. There are two types of shakers, the boston shaker and the cobbler shaker. They share the same function and it is a matter of taste which one to use. The boston shaker is more common in bars. With this type of shaker you will need a additional strainer, which on the other hand is built into the cobbler shaker. Fill the shaker with ice cubes and all ingredients. Mount the lid on the cobbler shaker or the tin part in case you have a boston shaker. Hold the shaker together and shake until the tin part is misty. Strain the fluid into a glass. Remember not to shake carbonated or hot liquids. Also, it is a golden rule NOT to shake in the direction of any of your guests. Mastering the shake will give you the skills to make an ABSOLUT Cosmopolitan.
