4. Faux Prescription COcktail Shaker

This shaker is certainly a conversation starter! Resembling a prescription bottle, it comes with a bunch of hilarious notes and warnings, including “side effects may include wishful thinking, dangerous dance moves, and more.” Holding 30 ounces, it’s one of the larger shakers on this list. And we all know large shakers = more drinks = more fun.


5. Monkey Cocktail Shaker

This shaker is downright cute. It’s not a shaker you’ll want to store in the back of your kitchen cabinets – it can definitely double as home décor! Godinger makes some of the highest quality kitchen products, so you know you can count on this lasting a good long time. It’s double walled (hooray, no frozen hands) and holds up to 12 ounces. You can even get a matching monkey corkscrew as well.


6. Cactus Cocktail Shaker

9. Spaceship Cocktail Shaker

10. Spooky Boston-Style Cocktail Shaker

Spooky season may be over, but this cocktail shaker will always be in style. The tin is velvety soft, and the glass is covered in wicked tasty recipes such as the “killer cosmopolitan” and “demonic daiquiri.” As it’s a Boston-style shaker, it can be difficult to form that tight seal between tins. But if you’re experienced with this type of shaker, you should be just fine. Be sure to check out the matching skull stirrer as well.
