What is muddling?
Muddling is used in a number of beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Lets take a classic example: the mojito. The mojito is a refreshing, summer cocktail complete with muddled mint. If you dont muddle the mint enough, the flavour of the mint will be lost. If you muddle the mint too much, the bitterness of the leaves will be released, giving your mojito an unpleasant taste.
To muddle mint, or any other herb, correctly use a muddler to press the mint against the bottom of the glass and twist the muddler a few times. Be careful not to tear up the leaves. When you smell the aroma of mint, youve muddled enough!
As you give your significant other their Valentines Day gifts this year, muddle some mint and surprise them with a killer mojito!
Should that cocktail be shaken or stirred?
James Bond brought us martinis, shaken, not stirred. But whats the difference? Cocktails that are meant to be stirred usually contain light mixers. As you might guess, cocktails that need to be shaken are ones that contain several ingredients or heavier mixers.
The flavours of a stirred and a shaken martini are very similar. A martini shaken with ice is a bit colder than a stirred martini. And when a martini is shaken, small ice chips remain in the cocktail even after being strained, diluting the cocktail. So should that martini be shaken, not stirred? Its up to you! However you like it, Everything But Flowers has a number of great cocktail-based Valentines Day gifts.
How do you layer cocktails?
Layering cocktails is a fun way to create cool-looking and great-tasting drinks for your next party. Choose a lighter beverage and a heavier beverage. Pour the heavier beverage into the bottom of a glass. Then take a spoon and turn it over, holding the tip close to the inside of the glass. Slowly and carefully, pour the lighter liquid, allowing it to hit the wall of the glass and run down onto the first layer.
