Choosing the perfect cocktail shaker is a personal matter, and you are sure to become proficient with any style you choose. If your interest is spill-free ease of operation, a three piece shaker may suit you. For experienced bar workers who might be looking for quickness, a 2-piece system of capping a smaller tin or mixing glass is often used, as is simply using a single tin for stirring and an ice strainer to separate the ice. Two piece shakers are also offered as a set, and oftentimes look is important as anything. If you want a little flair and comfortable hold, you may want to consider a Vinylworks shaker. Deciding metal or plastic is a factor when purchasing limits and show for both professionals and beginners are key.
