To make cocktails you need some stuff. Below are my recommendations for some essential mixing kit...

Boston shaker. This comes in two parts - a sturdy glass and a metal tin. It takes a bit of practice to master - it's certainly more challenging than the three-piece Manhattan shaker, but it's the better shaker, and easier to clean. Buy one from Amazon here.

Strainer. If you buy the Boston shaker you're going to need a strainer too. Luckily they're really cheap. Get one here.

Mini measuring jug. If you want to mix properly you need to measure what you're throwing in. This mini measurer from Oxo really is essential. Its angled markings allow you to see exactly what you're doing. Buy one immediately.

Bar spoon. Sometimes cocktails demand stirring not shaking. Get a big stirrer here.
