VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
When something "shakes" this essentially means that it either moves back and forth or rocks back and forth or it could even move up or down or in any number of possible directions. Examples:
"When the earthquake hit earlier this morning, the building shook very violently, but luckily no windows broke" or "In order to mix some drinks properly, sometimes you have to shake them very well for at least thirty seconds."
Another definition of the word shake has to so with a special kind of drink which became extremely popular in the 1950s, especially in the USA after the phenomenon of rock and roll music exploded on the scene.
In this meaning, the word shake refers to a drink which is usually made of some sort of ice cream, along with milk. Example:
"Many teenagers in America will eat french fries, hamburgers and also drink milk shakes."
If you make a shake with ingredients such as fruit in it, in English such items are simply called fruit shakes. Examples:
"I had a pineapple fruit shake with my lunch" or "I had a kiwi shake during my afternoon break."
Since a shake can be made from almost anything, you can simply call it a "shake," or use whatever its ingredients are to try and describe what kind it is.
