The Tim Ellis routine mentioned by Mr. Biro earlier in this thread:

"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.

There is a big resurgence of classic cocktail bars in manhattan. Places like Death & Company in the east village is a good example: each cocktail is like watching a show as they put it together. Expensive, but worth it for the show.

I'm always willing to pay more for just about anything if the presentation is entertaining! Except dentistry.

TIM lectured at IMX and tipped every move and more on his Run Around Sue routine. So well thought out, executed and entertaining.

I agree with Pete. There is more to the routine then initially meets the eye.

Just revisiting an old thread. I'm looking for a small shaker that will let me rest small balls on top. I got a Boston Shaker as a gift from a friend but the top was rounded..

Any tips?

You might check out Roger Nicots "the bar cup reloaded" and see it that fits what your wanting. You can get it from card shark by going to: http://www.vintage-series.com/iphone/sho......rtID=191

I think Montana is looking for a normal cup (might be wrong).
Have you looked for bar supply stores online? e.g.
http://www.drinkstuff.com/products/produ......l+Shaker
try to work out cup size in oz/ml to see if you are looking at the right stuff.

Thanks Puggo! You are correct. Looking for a ungimmicked cup. A normal small boston shaker. Thanks for the link! I'll check it out:)

Check the yellowpages (or google) for restaurant supply stores in your area, even if you don't purchase there it will give you a chance to try out a couple of styles of cocktail shaker and see what you like best.

Actually, my first set of cups were small, aluminum shakers with stepped sides. The only alteration needed was to use a golf ball and hammer to concave the bottoms to use standard balls. Worked a charm for many years at a small percentage of the cheapest set available. Finally replaced them when I had earned enough from shows to warrant them.

If you cannot afford what you want, see what you can make or alter.
