The moment when a cocktail coalesces amid the clatter of ice can be ruined by a leaking, sweating shaker with a lid that refuses to budge. It may not have a cool art deco design like our vintage shakers, but the brushed stainless steel 0X0 shaker's snug lid doesn't stick, its double-walled design keeps hands warm and dry, and it never drips at the seam. Why use anything else?
