The Absolut Elyx Copper Hawthorne Strainer is an essential piece of equipment for any cocktail enthusiast. Also known as a cocktail strainer or bar strainer, this indispensable bartending tool is used to filter out solid materials – such as ice, bits of fruit and seeds – from the liquid when crafting a drink. The Copper Hawthorne Strainer comes into play after the ingredients have been shaken, to remove any elements of the recipe that shouldn’t find their way into the finished cocktail. The ultimate high-quality cocktail strainer, this essential bar tool will help you create professional-standard cocktails at home.
Use this vintage-style professional-standard cocktail strainer in conjunction with our Copper Shaker and our Copper Jigger and you’ll have everything you need to deliver perfect shaken drinks.

Originally invented as a more versatile variation of the Julep Strainer, the Hawthorne Strainer’s game-changing element was the flexible spring that rings its central perforated metal plate. The spring fits snugly on top of your mixing tin or shaker, trapping more of the ice, muddled herbs and fruit than the wider holes of a Julep Strainer.
The Hawthorne Strainer quickly became the preferred tool of the Gilded Age bartender, eclipsing the Julep Strainer, although today both have pride of place in any well-equipped bar – with the Julep Strainer generally used to make stirred cocktails, the Hawthorne for shaken drinks.
