French shaker

  1. A cocktail shaker consisting of two metal tins of different volumes. After adding the ingredients to one half of the French shaker, the other half is inserted and the drink can be shaken. Unlike the cobbler shaker, a French shaker usually necessitates the use of a separate strainer to strain the drink into its serving glass, though the drink may also be strained by creating a small gap between the tin and glass that is too narrow for ice to pass through.
