For all of you mixologists and curious concoction creaters alike, The Boston Shaker, located in Davis Square, will fulfill your wildest dreams when it comes to drink making.

Adam and Kris Lantheaume, co-owers of this cocktail supply shop, welcomed their unique business to the area in 2010 and have been a top tourist attraction and frequent stop for many customers in and outside of the Greater Boston area.

The couple believes that craft cocktails are created with quality ingredients, fresh juices, and real garnishes, which is evident upon entering their shop, filled with books, ingredients and tools for new innovations on every shelf.

Not only can you get your “fix” when it comes to purchasing top of the line bitters and Boston shakers ( which is where the business got its name), but the shop also offers demonstrations and classes for those who have a thirst for knowledge.

What makes the Boston Shaker unique?

Adam Lantheaume believes that their business is unique, because it is the only neighborhood cocktail supply store doing exactly what they are doing. Their focus is on the craft of making a perfect cocktail, and the people executing them.

” We are more focused on the people, and less on the things,” says Lantheaume.
