The parisienne or parisian shaker is used all over the world and is a model that many bartenders prefer to traditional shakers for their professionalism and elegance.
Composed of two pieces, the parisienne differs in form and function from the boston and cobbler . Very large and filter-free like the Boston shaker , this type of shaker allows you to build one or more cocktails directly inside it.
Before the construction of the drink the container, or lower part of the parisienne shaker , should be filled with ice to allow it to cool; the upper part must be positioned, upside down, above the ice so that there is perfect cooling of both components of the shaker . In this way, the parisian shaker will isolate the liquid from the ice and allow for a slower execution of the cocktail making, bringing the spilled liquids inside at lower temperatures.
It is also particularly suitable for the throwing / rolling technique , which consists in passing the liquid to be mixed and refrigerated from one part of the shaker to the other , thanks to the help of a strainer to hold the ice in the deepest container drink passage.
