Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers but this one is by far my favorite. It doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup that will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with this shaker.
If you have to squeeze and measure fresh lime juice, try this small juicer. You’ll have the perfect measurement every time.
Take this drink outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. But don’t bring glass on the boat or near the pool. Try these 20-ounce acrylic glasses (shown below). They are perfect for any outdoor occasion. Remember to put a ‘double’ 2 portions of the Jolly Rancher in the 20-ounce glass. And add lots of ice! If you want a single serving, the 15-ounce acrylic glasses in the photo above are a better choice.
