Deciding on the "correct" cocktail shaker is a matter of taste and practicality, and you may become proficient with any model you choose. If your main concern is clean ease of use, a three-piece shaker may suit you. For experienced bar workers who are looking for speed, a two piece system of capping a small tin or mixing glass is often used, as is simply using a single tin for stirring and an ice strainer while pouring. 2-piece shakers are often sold as a set, and oftentimes appearance is important as anything. If you want a little flair and comfortable hold, you may want to see the Vinylworks shaker. Picking stainless steel or plastic is another consideration when purchasing limits and show of both professionals and home bar enthusiasts are key.
