Cocktail Shaker Answered

The point of buying a Cocktail Shaker is to mix alcohol with other alcohols and crushed ice to make it cold all the way through right? If that's the case, why bother BUYING one when you can reuse an old 1-liter water bottle or some such to do the same job? Is there any reason that I'm missing that would prove this theory false?

It's in the design. The shaker has a removable lid, with a coarse sieve in it. Also cocktail mixers (people) often like to cram the thing onto a glass. A plastic pint glass would probably do as well for that technique. L
