to make martinis without a martini shaker
friends over who prefer a martini to the wine you've chosen.
But if you don't have a martini shaker, there are couple easy
ways you can make your own.
Probably the easiest
way is to take a travel coffee mug, and use it as a martini
shaker. Put the ice and cocktail ingredients into your coffee
mug, screw on the land and close the spout. Shake it up, being
careful to put your thumb over top of the opening so the lid
doesn't fly open at an inopportune moment and douse the room
with your guest's martini of choice. Then simply open the
drinking spout, and easily pour the martini into martini glasses
without worrying about the ice falling out.
Don't have a travel
mug? Then take to glasses, one slightly smaller than the other
so that the tops of each glass sit inside each other, but
the ingredients in the larger glass, and use the smaller glasses
Do you entertain
frequently? You can pick up nice martini shakers for only
a few dollars if budget is an issue. By these methods will
get you through in the meantime, in a pinch or on a budget.
