The Art of Cocktail Shaking and How to Use a Cocktail Shaker

Anyone who chooses bartending as their profession should consider mastering the art of cocktail making. Cocktail bartenders are well-respected, advised and often considered to be fun individuals. But most importantly, one of the benefits of becoming a cocktail bartender is receiving huge tips and learning more money.

The preparation of cocktails is somewhat an art with its own terminology and methodology. Personally, I believe that cocktail making is one of the most fulfilling aspects of bartending. Cocktail bartenders are true artists that are able to entertain their customers while preparing tasty and exotic drinks.

One of the most famous and recognizable methods is cocktail shaking. For many years, popular culture has described this bartender method as a sophisticated and alluring activity. Its appealing looks to be acknowledged worldwide, due to the famous James Bond phrase "shook, not stirred" which has reached millions of people through decades.

Shaking a drink is done for the purpose of chilling and diluting the drink. The dilution is just as important as using the right proportions of ingredients. Using too little ice will result in an over-diluted cocktail, as your ice will quickly melt in the shaker.

Shaking is mostly done with cubed ice. Always fill your shaker two-thirds full of fresh ice, add all the required ingredients and shake briskly. Strain the liquid into a drinking glass, leaving the cubed ice behind in the shaker.

While cocktail shaking is a fun activity, you should take great care of how you hold your shaker. Losing your grip while shaking a cocktail will not only make a huge mess, but could also cause injury to those close by. Not to mention that it would be quite embarrassing. Remember to always hold your shaker with two hands, despite what you may have seen in movies or cocktail bars. Also, you should never shake fizzy ingredients.

Cocktail shakers: standard and Boston

There are two cocktail shakers: the standard cocktail shaker and the Boston shaker. The first consists of three parts: a flat-bottomed, conical base or 'can', a top with a built-in strainer and a cap. A Boston shaker enterprises of two cones, one made of glass and the other made of stainless steel. While a standard shaker has its own built-in strainer, a Hawthorne strainer is used in conjunction with a Boston shaker. This perforated metal top, held in place by a wire coil is used on the metal half of the Boston shaker.

How to use a standard shaker

Here are the proper steps to use the standard shaker.

  1. Fill the base of the shaker two-thirds full of fresh cubed ice. Add all ingredients.
  2. Place the top on the base and close the cap firmly.
  3. Start shaking with two hands, holding one hand on the top and the other on the bottom of the shaker. The top should always stay on top while shaking and point away from guests.
  4. Shake for a count of around 20 seconds. Lift off the cap, hold the top with one finger and pour the drink into a chilled glass through the built-in strainer.

How to use a Boston shaker

Here's a step by step guide on how to use the Boston shaker.

  1. Combine the ingredients in the glass part of the shaker, also called a 'Boston glass'. Before adding ingredients, make sure to fill your shaker two-thirds full of fresh cubed ice.
  2. Place the metal half of the shaker over the top of the glass half. Tap the top lightly with the heel of your hand. This will create a seal.
  3. Start shaking with one hand on top and one on the bottom. Make sure that the glass part is always on top while shaking and is pointing away from your guests.
  4. Keep shaking for a count of approximately 20 seconds. Hold the metal part of the shaker in your hand and tap the side where you estimate the glass rim sets. This will break the seal between the glass half and the metal half, allowing you to open the shaker. If the shaker can not be opened, do not panic. Turn the shaker one quarter turn and repeat the tapping process.
  5. Place a Hawthorne strainer over the top of the metal container and strain the liquid into a chilled glass.

These basic steps will ensure you are introduced with the art of shaking cocktails. However, remember that cocktail shaking is done with a certain amount of showmanship, as it is a drink preparing process that should entertain your guests while waiting. Expect the customer to watch closely while you shake a cocktail, so make sure you practice a lot before you actually start shaking cocktails for money.

In addition, remember that a proper course will teach you the ground basics of cocktail preparation. If you're serious about your bartending profession, invest in a good training course. You will learn all there is to know about cocktail preparation, which includes not only shaking but also layering, building, muddling and stirring drinks.

Downfalls: what not to do

One of the most common mistakes made by beginning bartenders and cocktail shaking enthusiasts has to do with re-use of ice. You should never use the same ice if you're shaking more than one cocktail, even if you're shaking the exact same drink. You should always throw away ice after training the drink and use fresh ice to fill the glass.

Garnishing your cocktails

After you have strained the liquid into a chilled glass, it's time to garnish your cocktail. Garnishes are used to decorate the cocktail and are usually attached to the rim of the glass. The proper garnish will enhance the overall look of your cocktail and the aroma and flavor as well. Garnishes should beible, so please forget about the cliche paper parasols.

Our Miss Brooks: The Auction / Baseball Uniforms / Free TV from Sherry’s



Our Miss Brooks is an American situation comedy starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952–56), it became one of the medium’s earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for big screen in the film of the same name.

Connie (Constance) Brooks (Eve Arden), an English teacher at fictional Madison High School.
Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), blustery, gruff, crooked and unsympathetic Madison High principal, a near-constant pain to his faculty and students. (Conklin was played by Joseph Forte in the show’s first episode; Gordon succeeded him for the rest of the series’ run.) Occasionally Conklin would rig competitions at the school–such as that for prom queen–so that his daughter Harriet would win.
Walter Denton (Richard Crenna, billed at the time as Dick Crenna), a Madison High student, well-intentioned and clumsy, with a nasally high, cracking voice, often driving Miss Brooks (his self-professed favorite teacher) to school in a broken-down jalopy. Miss Brooks’ references to her own usually-in-the-shop car became one of the show’s running gags.
Philip Boynton (Jeff Chandler on radio, billed sometimes under his birth name Ira Grossel); Robert Rockwell on both radio and television), Madison High biology teacher, the shy and often clueless object of Miss Brooks’ affections.
Margaret Davis (Jane Morgan), Miss Brooks’ absentminded landlady, whose two trademarks are a cat named Minerva, and a penchant for whipping up exotic and often inedible breakfasts.
Harriet Conklin (Gloria McMillan), Madison High student and daughter of principal Conklin. A sometime love interest for Walter Denton, Harriet was honest and guileless with none of her father’s malevolence and dishonesty.
Stretch (Fabian) Snodgrass (Leonard Smith), dull-witted Madison High athletic star and Walter’s best friend.
Daisy Enright (Mary Jane Croft), Madison High English teacher, and a scheming professional and romantic rival to Miss Brooks.
Jacques Monet (Gerald Mohr), a French teacher.

Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the underpaid downside of public school teaching at the time to have fun with the role.

Lucille Ball was believed to have been the next choice, but she was already committed to My Favorite Husband and didn’t audition. Chairman Bill Paley, who was friendly with Arden, persuaded her to audition for the part. With a slightly rewritten audition script–Osgood Conklin, for example, was originally written as a school board president but was now written as the incoming new Madison principal–Arden agreed to give the newly-revamped show a try.

Produced by Larry Berns and written by director Al Lewis, Our Miss Brooks premiered on July 19, 1948. According to radio critic John Crosby, her lines were very “feline” in dialogue scenes with principal Conklin and would-be boyfriend Boynton, with sharp, witty comebacks. The interplay between the cast–blustery Conklin, nebbishy Denton, accommodating Harriet, absentminded Mrs. Davis, clueless Boynton, scheming Miss Enright–also received positive reviews.

Arden won a radio listeners’ poll by Radio Mirror magazine as the top ranking comedienne of 1948-49, receiving her award at the end of an Our Miss Brooks broadcast that March. “I’m certainly going to try in the coming months to merit the honor you’ve bestowed upon me, because I understand that if I win this two years in a row, I get to keep Mr. Boynton,” she joked. But she was also a hit with the critics; a winter 1949 poll of newspaper and magazine radio editors taken by Motion Picture Daily named her the year’s best radio comedienne.

For its entire radio life, the show was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive-Peet, promoting Palmolive soap, Lustre Creme shampoo and Toni hair care products. The radio series continued until 1957, a year after its television life ended.

Male Sexual Health – For Stronger Eerections and Healthy Heart Eat Pistachios!

In our previous article, “Erections Without the Bill Pill” we lauded and value of the pistachio nut in a man’s daily diet, and an elixir of pistachios and honey.

However, the benefit of eating pistachios does not stop at a man’s genito-reproductive system.

The same action which keeps the circulatory system and vessels of the penis working in top form, now are known to protect against cardio-vascular disease. Read on for the latest information!

Study Done at Pennsylvania State University

In a recent study conducted at the Pennsylvania State University, it was discovered that eating pistachio nuts daily (combined also with a wholesome and low fat diet, resulted in a greatly reduced (bad, or LDL cholesterol) cholesterol level. This means with a lower bad cholesterol level, the arteries remain open and the heart operating properly.

Quoting the lead researcher, Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, “Our study has shown that pistachios, eaten with a healthy heart diet, may decrease a person’s cardiovascular disease risk profile.”

She went on to say that, “Pistachios are rich in an antioxidant called lutein, usually found in green leafy vegetables and brightly colored fruit.

Present at higher levels in the pistachio than other nuts, lutein helps prevent cholesterol from clogging up arteries”

Even more interesting was the fact the more pistachios the study volunteers ate, the better their test results.

Pistachios and Europe, the Middle-East and Asia

Known as common wisdom to all males from the Middle-East and Asia, eating pistachios increases the male potential, is known for increasing the amount and quality of a man’s sperm, and erective quality.

The ancient Greeks and Romans knew also of this phenomenon, and included the pistachio in both their daily food and sweets.

It was known in conventional wisdom to protect one’s health

The study done now at Pennsylvania State University adds some important scientific proof to this food’s healthful qualities.

The Elixir of Life

To make this life-saving and sexually enhancing elixis, you will need to start with unsalted dry roasted pistachios, about one cup full (and de-shelled) added to an equal amount of natural organic honey.

Buy only the highest quality organic honey. Mix the pistachios and honey together, then put the mixture into a glass jar, filled to the brim and capped tightly.

Now expose the jar to the sun for one week. Naturally the best time to make this mixture is during the summer months. The elixir is ready after one week.

Each morning eat two tablespoons of the elixir with some organic yogurt. Be ready to see your erections react in a very positive and dramatic way.

More Pistachios in Your Diet

We recommend besides the elixir, to eat a handful of dry roasted unsalted pistachios daily as a snack. In this way, you not only achieve an increase in your masculine potential, but also are in the process of protecting your heart.

Other dietary suggestions include the addition of pistachio nuts to salads, sprinkled on low-fat cottage cheese, and eaten together with grapes when they are in season.

From time to time, and if available in your location, there are many Turkish and Middle-Eastern pasty based on the inclusion of pistachio nuts. Even with the sugar, the positive effect on cholesterol is achieved.
