The 24 OZ. Cobalt Shaker

James Bond wants his martinis “shaken, not stirred” for a reason. That process gets the drink colder, and as every cocktail enthusiast knows, colder is better. The Cobalt Shaker’s new patented technology quickly chills the mixture until extremely cold — without diluting the cocktail. Additionally, it creates ice crystals that float on top of the drink, adding another layer to the experience. Anyone can make a great cocktail; the Cobalt Shaker is the secret to the Perfect Cocktail. Price: $69.95
