TIPS FOR AMAZING COCKTAILS
- 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
