  • Chill your cocktail shaker if possible
  • Chill your martini glass (or whatever glass you’re using)
  • Fill the shaker at least 2/3 full with ice
  • Shake very vigorously for AT LEAST 30 seconds to ensure you get lots of ice crystals in your drink
  • Strain through the shaker lid or a fine mesh strainer to keep all the impurities out of your cocktail
  • Always garnish – it adds color and aroma and a fabulous presentation
