Tools of the Trade

At the weekend my large measuring glass had a meeting with floor from which it did not recover. I went to Amazon to order another. Whilst I was one the site, I also purchased a strainer to allow me to stir cocktails in a glass rather than use the shaker.


The strainer covers the glass, with the springs ensuring a good fit, you can the pour without the ice in the glass tumbling out. Stirring a cocktail ensures a clear drink without tiny particles of ice suspended in the drink; providing a different look and taste.

The first drink I made with my new cocktail tools was one of the least imaginatively named drinks I have tried; the Brandy Vermouth cocktail. This was four parts Brandy to one part Vermouth and a splash of Angostura. Tasty, and easy to remember the ingredients from the name.
