Using a stainless steel shaker repeatedly is uncomfortably cold for the user’s hands. Marc chose to use crystal because it transmits cold much less than metal, and he added striations, or vertical grooves, to improve grip and help further insulate the hands from the cold contents by decreasing the area of surface contact.
