A cocktail strainer is a valuable addition to any bar and here's our favorite.
The Hawthorn-style cocktail strainer from OXO is like so many of their other products, thoughtfully designed.
It fits over the top of a cocktail shaker and keeps ice and seeds out of your drink. It has a short handle so it doesn't take up a lot of space in the junk drawer, and a slightly raised lip to make pouring easier with less spillage. There is a thumb rest and it is dishwasher safe. It can also be used for making real lemonade.
