Used for certain frappé cocktails, it makes a perfect emulsion and cools ingredients of different types and densities. These can be fruit juices, cordials, alcohols, thick liquids (cream, honey, eggs, etc.), or solids (ice cubes, spices or fruit pieces). Its lower part consists of a tall glass in clear crystal that allows the mixture to be viewed. Used alone, it suitable for preparing cocktails stirred with a spoon. Its upper part in silvered metal fits over the top of the glass. It is composed of two sections: a middle part with the filter, through which the cocktail is poured, and the stopper in food-grade rubber, which tops the shaker and ensures it remains hermetically sealed for mixing. The shaker is essential for making a large number of cocktails, such as the Long Island and the Whisky Sour.
Mixology at home. Manhattan collection come from the name of a famous cocktail. And of a cosmopolitan, high-rise city, as vibrant as crystal. During the Prohibition era, this was where the culture of speakeasies and clandestine bars came about, born of a desire to continue having fun. And what if true freedom was simply about mixing and enjoying your favourite cocktails at home, amongst friends?
Each of the 13 products in the collection, as well as the two gift sets, have been designed for specific uses: the essentials tools for mixology from preparation to tasting. For amateurs and experts, each piece has been mouth-blown and hand-cut with vertical and horizontal bevels, revealing the full sparkle of the crystal.
