Tanqueray No. Ten Imperial Shaker

A proper hostess knows how to keep all of her guests fed, entertained, and most importantly, knows how to ensure that all of the guests have full cocktail coupes (at least that's what my grandmother taught me).  

With the re-introduction of the historical Imperial Shaker made exclusively for Tanqueray No. Ten, you can be a hostess supreme - preparing numerous shakers of cocktails at once without breaking a sweat (or a nail).  The Imperial shaker locks and loads 4 cocktail shakers, and then using a cast iron crank, shakes said shakers in a vigorous elliptical shake that is far superior to your hand shake.   The result?  Guests ooh-ing and ahh-ing, wanting to crank for themselves, and of course, perfectly shaken Ramos Gin Fizzes.  Genius.
