The basic rule about cocktail shakers is that if it has bubbles like coke, soda water, or champagne, do not mix it unless you want to clean us a big mess.

Is there a right and wrong way of building a cocktail?

Yes. There are many ways to change cocktails and update them; however the technique of building a cocktail is crucial. You should always start with the right glassware. Then add ice - all the way to the rim of the glass - cocktails taste best when made with a lot of ice. At this stage, if your cocktail recipe requires any seasoning, you should add it (for instance a bloody mary). Next, you should add the spirit (vodka, rum, etc.), followed by the mixer(s) and garnish.
