Most cocktail shakers are sold with a build-in strainer or hawthorn strainer. When a drink calls for straining, ensure you have used ice cubes, as crushed ice tends to clog the strainer of a standard shaker. If indeed a drink is required shaken with crushed ice (ie. Shirley Temple), it is to be served unstrained.
