A standard three-piece cocktail shaker features a body, a strainer, and a cap. Sometimes, the strainer gets stuck in the cup, making it difficult to remove. There are many reasons for this. This problem can be caused by sticky residue on the inside of the cup or strain, shrinkage when the metal cup is getting cooled, mismatched strainer and cup combination.

Method to open a stuck cocktail shaker

  1. If this is a metal shaker, fill the hot water in a bowl and hold the shaker upside down with a cap on the water. Use a towel, because the metal is hot, it will burn your hands. The metal may be slightly expanded by heat. This can be able to remove the shaker’s lid.
  2. If you have more time, fill the shaker completely with cold water and place it in the freezer overnight. The water expands as it switches to work. Thus the cap is forced off and remover from the cocktail shaker.

Here are five techniques to open a stuck shaker lid

  1. Brute force.
  2. Wrap the lid in a dish towel or rubber glove.
  3. Break the vacuum seal.
  4. Run the lid under hot water.
  5. Tap the lid with a spoon.
