Fill It Up Friday: The DIY Cocktail Shaker

Last week Lifehacker asked readers to hack something using mason jars. The winner, the aptly named Cocktail Hacker, Reese Lloyd, was a brilliantly simple cocktail shaker.

A cocktail shaker that doesn’t suck is an essential piece of a good cocktail tool set. And, honestly, it’s the only piece that you likely don’t already have in your kitchen. The cheap shakers that you find are generally crappy. They leak, they’re awkward, definitely non-optimal. More expensive shakers solve those problems, but are costly enough as to put folks off of picking one up on a whim.
