We’ve always considered bartending an art. It’s a notion that allows us to sleep at night. After all, not even Getty spent as big of a percentage of income on masterpieces as we have.
Really honing in on the art aspect of mixology is the Twist Cocktail Shaker from designer Fred Bould.
The helix-shaped functional sculpture is so attention-grabbing that party guests are too enamored with its gorgeous design to notice we only use the cheap stuff in their cocktails.
Twist’s appeal doesn’t end with its aesthetics – a removable strainer is incorporated into the shaker itself, meaning that even after our eleventh visit in a row to the device, our trembling hands and blurred vision won’t have to mastermind a contraption with (gasp!) more than one part.
And the shaker’s naturally-thermal Nambé metal keeps our libations cold no matter how many thrusts our grasped hands give it.
Sure, the unconventional shape might remind some of our friskier fairy guests of a very different gadget, but as long as it gets their mouths watering, we’re sure the drinks deriving from its artful precision will leave them satisfied just the same.
