Basic barware and bar tools can't be discussed without talking about a mixing glass. And none are more iconic than this Sleek modern design. Enough with the cheap cocktail set, start a real bartending set with professional bar tools today. The mixing glass is enjoying a comeback in modern mixology. Dilution of drinks like a Manhattan or Old Fashioned is the surest way to decrease the quality of your craft cocktail. That's why, in a spirit or liquor forward drink, stirring a cocktail is the best way to preserve the aroma of that delicious bourbon or whiskey your showcasing and measured out perfectly in your jigger. Shaking with so many small ice cubes waters down the drink much more than stirring with a bar spoon and mixing pitcher. A viciously fast stir is best to chill cocktails without dilution. And for that fast stir, a heavy mixing glass allowing leverage is key. Our sturdy bar accessories mixer pitcher helps you do just that. We recommend our 18” long bar spoon for most efficient and effective stirs. The thick, workhorse of the industry. Barware and cocktailery tools aren't all created equal. Your bar accessories affect your drinks - so choose wisely - We promise a quality product and if you're not happy we'll replace or refund you. Stir away, friends. Cheers - How to Use - Simply add ice, mixers, bitters, and stir. (find the balance between larger cubes for low dilution, but not too large to hinder stirring) Stir until the outside of the glass becomes cold and starts frosting. Strain, use a strainer and pour into one of our Nick & Nora cocktail glasses.
What cocktails should be stirred? Common cocktails that call to be stirred instead of shaken: Negroni, Manhattan, Dry Martini, Old fashioned.
Finally, this centuries-old workhorse of the bartending industry is hailing as savior amidst cheap modern mixology sets. Ditch the flimsy shaker and cheap bartender kit with the floppy ice tongs. Come back to cocktailery's pre-prohibition roots and stir, strain, and pour a proper drink into a chilled martini glass for your guests.
