There are some things you can never have too many of.

This Bauhaus-style cocktail shaker came out of Sweden a full 80 years ago, but it’s currently put out by Alessi, an Italian design factory. The thin loop around the outside is a handle—for better leverage and so you don’t smudge the main container—but the real point is putting an extra orbit-style ring around the central globe.

It’s a little short on volume, and it doesn’t fit in your hand the way some others might, but the continental panache more than makes up for it.
