**A tip from Derek, our Bar Manager, on alternatives to a cocktail shaker, that you can find around the home
  • A Jam/Pasta Sauce Jar - We are sure most of you will have a jam jar or old pasta sauce jar lying around or one that is almost finished. Simply wash it out, fill with ice and ingredients, screw the lid on tightly and shake hard!
  • Sports Bottle –  A leak proof sports bottles is the perfect cocktail shaker - just make sure you close the spout first 😊!
  • Protein Shaker - It's main use is to shake liquids, so why not use it to shake better liquids!
