This is around in various guises, but we love the Rocket Cocktail Shaker found at the appropriately-named Rockett St George.

A stainless steel shaker complete with a strainer, lid, ‘capsule-esque’ cap, an aerodynamic body and stand. Looks good 365 days of the year, whether you fancy a cocktail or not. £34.99 for this.

1960s classic: Stelton 016-1 Cocktail Shaker by Arne Jacobsen

Sleek and stylish, that pretty much sums up this classic.

Part of a larger bar range dating back to 1969 , this shaker is all about minimalism and functionality, with a satin-finish stainless steel construction and a lid keeping everything tightly in place. Dishwasher-friendly too. Not cheap though, retailing for £122.96.

Art deco style: Pineapple Cocktail Shaker at Oliver Bonas

Such a classy looking thing and looking every bit the art deco original.

It isn’t though. This is available at Oliver Bonas, with a metallic gold finish and an eye-catching design inspired by the humble pineapple. £34 gets you one.

Bauhaus original: Sylvia Stave 90021 cocktail shaker

It looks futuristic, but amazingly, the Sylvia Stave 90021 cocktail shaker dates back to the 1920s.

Alessia produces this under licensed from the Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin, a shaker designed by Sylvia Stave from Sweden and with a mirror polished steel exterior and a 100cl capacity if you need a stuff drink. Out of stock right now at Alessi, so perhaps check eBay for one and expect to pay around £220.

A touch of kitsch: Penguin cocktail shaker

OK, maybe the pineapple shaker is kitsch-y too, but we think this Penguin cocktail shaker is just ahead on the that front.

Adding in a bit of fun, this Penguin has a tuxedo and tie, but more usefully, stainless steel construction and a built-in strainer. At £29.99 it’s the cheapest of the bunch too.
