Highball Shaker – 20 fl. oz. Vacuum-Insulated Cocktail Shaker, Strainer & Tumbler

If you’re thinking about investing in a home bar, then you should definitely start by purchasing a decent set of bar tools. While simpler tools such as the necessary glassware, along with some bar spoons, a peg measurer, a beaker, a juicer, and even a mini-fridge might all be easy to pick up, that’s not necessarily the case with cocktail shakers. That’s because some shakers are designed to be more functional than others. Nevertheless, as any cocktail lover or skilled mixologist probably knows, a cocktail shaker is an indispensable tool for any home bar, and that goes both for beginners and professionals alike. Essentially, cocktail shakers allow you to quickly and efficiently blend cocktails, ultimately ensuring that all ingredients are properly mixed together, while putting ice inside a shaker also allows for a quicker cooling and dilution of your mixed beverage before serving it. Moreover, preparing your cocktails with a shaker also ensures a consistent taste, from the first sip to the last. So, if you’re looking for a cocktail shaker that can truly do it all, then consider going with the Highball Shaker from High Camp Flasks.

The Highball Shaker is a 20 fl. oz. stainless steel vacuum-insulated cocktail tumbler that comes together with a leak-proof lid and a Removable Strainer, allowing you to use it either as a shaker, or ultimately as a tumbler.

Designed for hot and cold beverages, the Highball Shaker’s double-wall vacuum-insulated design works together with its Leak-Proof Lid to help the shaker to control your beverage’s temperature for up to 24 hours. Best of all, using the Highball Shaker together with its Removable Strainer allows you to add ice and spirits to the shaker, while its Leak-Proof Lid sits directly above its Strainer to prevent ice from getting over the strainer during a vigorous shake.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at this sleek cocktail shaker and check out everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the shaker’s size, the Highball Shaker comes at a sleek and compact size, measuring just 7 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter (when not having it equipped with its Removable Strainer).

Alternatively, when using the whole set together (meaning when having the shaker equipped with its Removable Strainer), the shaker grows slightly in height, measuring 8 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter.

This sleek cocktail shaker is also fairly lightweight, as even when having the whole set put together, the shaker only weighs a measly 20.25 oz.

Regarding its design, it’s worth noting that the Highball Shaker’s design is actually inspired by a traditional Mason Jar, which basically makes this shaker look similar to a “fancy” highball cocktail glass.

Sleek design inspired by a traditional Mason Jar ( Gunmetal Dark Gray )

For our review unit, we went with the Gunmetal color-model, which basically comes in a gorgeous and really stylish Dark Gray metallic color. Still, customers also have the option to go with a Copper color (a bright metallic brown), or with a Stainless Steel color (meaning a lighter metallic gray).

On top of its compact form and stylish look, this versatile cocktail shaker also features an extremely durable construction, as the unit is solely built of 100% Extra Thick 18/8 kitchen-grade Stainless Steel. This also means that this shaker is both BPA-free and Phthalate-free.

Now, when it comes to the shaker’s capacity, know that the Highball Shaker can be used either as a 20 fl. oz. shaker / tumbler when having it equipped with its Removable Strainer, or alternatively, as a 14 fl. oz. shaker / tumbler when not having its strainer attachment equipped.

20 fl. oz. capacity

Respectively, this means that this shaker is capable of easily fitting one (x1) full 16 fl. oz. tall beer can when having it equipped with its Removable Strainer (for times when you’re not planning to prepare cocktails, of course), thus making the unit function as a 16 fl. oz. single beer cooler.

Alternatively, when not having the shaker equipped with its strainer, the Highball Shaker can still fit one (x1) full 12 fl. oz. standard short beer can.

Moving on to the shaker’s different components and functionalities. Right at its top-side, we have an ultra-durable Leak-Proof  Stainless Steel Plug Cap (meaning the shaker’s top lid) that’s equipped with a built-in Silicone Seal, which helps to keep the shaker’s contents neatly sealed inside.

Components – Leak-Proof Lid / Removable Strainer / Main Tumbler Piece (top-to-bottom)

Below its Leak-Proof Lid, there’s a Removable Strainer that can be screwed / fastened into the shaker’s top-opening for accurately filtering out any extra residue that you’re looking to prevent from going into your tasty cocktails (such as thicker orange peel scraps or larger pieces of smashed ice, for example). Doing so also increases the shaker’s capacity from 12 fl. oz. to 16 fl. oz. (as said before).

Furthermore, the Highball Shaker’s tumbler (meaning the shaker’s main piece) also features a double-walled vacuum-insulated design that, together with its Leak-Proof Lid, helps the shaker to control your beverage’s temperature for up to 24 hours. That ultimately makes this shaker suitable for preparing and storing both hot and cold beverages.

At the top-side of the shaker’s tumbler, there’s a wide mouth opening that makes it easy to pour / serve the shaker’s beverages.

It’s also worth noting that the shaker’s Leak-Proof Lid can also be used as a leak-proof bar glass for serving small portions of your mixed cocktail and then sipping your beverage from it, which is great for any time that you don’t have a standard glass at hand / close-by.

By using the Highball Shaker together with its Removable Strainer, you’re able to add ice and spirits to the shaker, for which its Leak-Proof Lid then sits directly above its Strainer to prevent ice from getting over the strainer during a vigorous shake.

Last but not least, this sleek cocktail shaker also comes together with an abrasion-resistant Ttricot Nylon Sleeve that helps to keep the shaker’s outer body protected from any sort of scratches or dents during its transportation.
