    • Spanish explorer Hernando Cortez found golden cylinder-shaped containers that were used to prepare frothy cacao mixtures.
  • Mid-19th Century
    • According to Stephen Visakay the shaker developed when someone, possibly an innkeeper, came up with the idea of putting the two glasses together, resulting in a cleaner, more thorough mixing of cocktails.  

“Finding that the smaller mouth of one container fitted into another, he held the two together and shook ‘for a bit of a show.’” 

  • 1848
    • The New York Times credits George Foster with the first description of the modern shaker.

“With his shirt sleeves rolled up, and his face in a fiery glow [he] seems to be pulling long ribbons of julep out of a tin cup.”
