Boston Shaker vs Cobbler Shaker: Pros and Cons

As you can see, the difference in design with the Boston Shaker and Cobbler Shaker produces different results when it comes to cocktail creation. The various features of each cocktail shaker also brings their own unique pros and cons.  

The Pros and Cons Of A Boston Shaker vs Cobbler Shaker

Boston Shakers have the advantage of being easy to clean and pretty straightforward to use. Loved by professional bartenders, shaking cocktails with Boston Shakers is also quite the spectacle that attracts a crowd. However, a Boston shaker set does require additional tools such as a separate strainer, bar spoon or double-sided jigger.

On the other hand, most Cobbler Shakers come with a built-in strainer that makes it harder to clean. With a tumbler portion that is made complete with a small cap, the Cobbler Shaker is much loved by home bartenders and amateur mixologists who love a convenient and elegant solution whenever they are craving for a cocktail. However, most cobbler shaker caps aren't necessarily 1-ounce capacity, plus the included strainer in most cobbler shakers aren't always great.

Compared to the Cobbler Shaker, the Boston Shaker is easier to handle and clean although it lacks in the more vintage, sleek look that makes a Cobbler Shaker much more appealing to connoisseurs who value both form and function.
