What Do I Do if I Don’t Have a Cocktail Shaker?
Craving a margarita but don’t have a cocktail shaker handy? No problem. Creating a cocktail shaker alternative is easy. If you have a mason jar, any other glass jar with a lid, or even a water bottle—just about anything with a lid—it will serve as the perfect cocktail shaker. Then add your ingredients, top if off with ice, close the lid and shake. Add a garnish if you’d like and you’ll have a delicious margarita.
