Arguably one of the most famous Bond sayings ever – ‘Shaken not Stirred’ but you might be surprised to learn that here at MiX’d very few of our cocktails need to be shaken.

But what happens if you want to get your shake on but don’t have the tools to do so? Well don’t worry – we’ve got you covered (and not in our cocktails hopefully!).

Check out our helpful little list to get you started.


An empty juice bottle.

Make sure you’ve washed it out first and you’re set to go!

A protein shaker.

Whilst this shaker is probably more used to bearing a healthier liquid – it is an ideal container to get mixing! Just make sure that cap is popped down securely .. we don’t want any of that precious liquid going amiss!

A blender.

Any household blender will work wonders – just be careful of those blades – we   don’t want any unwanted additions to your tasty cocktail!

A milk carton.

Now it goes without saying that if you want to use a milk carton – make sure it’s clean. Whilst we’re all for experimenting – the vast majority of our cocktails are not going to mix well with the white stuff!

Tupperware tub with a good seal

Believe it or not a household tupperware tub makes a good shaker. But we’d definitely advise picking one out with a good seal to prevent any leakages!

Coffee/Thermos flask

We’d forgive you for not contemplating this as a shaker option for your cocktails (more used to housing your tea and coffee) but a Thermos flask makes a pretty good shaker! Just make sure it’s had a good clean out and you’re set to go.


If you find yourself without any suitable tools for the job then don’t worry.

Our cocktails are only recommended to be shaken so as long as they are pre-chilled, then you can simply combine the pouch and the mixer – with a little ice if you have some – sit back – and enjoy!

Cheers!
