For truly next-level tipples tricked out with tasty fruits, herbs, and spices, you’ll need more than a shaker and strainer. This simple hardwood muddler is designed to neatly and effectively pulverize ingredients so you can easily add delicious twists to your favorite drinks. That way, you’ve got more time to savor the most enjoyable part of the process.
How it Works
Many cocktail recipes require ingredients like fruits or herbs to be crushed before they’re added to a drink, releasing juices and flavors prior to mixing. With a muddler like this one, the only thing standing between you and an authentic Mojito is the enjoyable process of procuring and smashing mint leaves with sugar and lime juice.
How to Use
Place the ingredients to be muddled—typically sugar, bitters, fruit and/or herbs—at the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Depending on your drink, press down lightly and give a few gentle twists (releasing the essence of ingredients like mint), or mash vigorously (to break down less-delicate ingredients).
