Looking for a cocktail shaker now the pubs and bars won't be as accessible? I was. That's until I found this bargain buy, which I think is one of the best Cyber Monday deals around right now. And this House of Fraser pick is just the thing to use at home now that my usual bar has had to close.
I'm not sure about you, but I've always fancied being a bartender. The trouble is, I'm actually a bit of a spiller. So I guess most of my concoctions would have ended up spilt on my customers rather than in their glasses.
But if you're making cocktails at home, it doesn't matter if you spill, right? But it does matter that you have the right equipment. And the one thing you really need is a cocktail shaker. And, if it's as pretty as this one, then even better.
And another thing I've discovered lately is that making cocktails is a lot easier than you think. After taking part in several virtual cocktail masterclass sessions, I've realised it's hard to go too wrong. My top tip: use lots of ice!
Here's the full deal below. But, remember, this crazy price is only because of Cyber Monday so it won't be around for long!
