Well, I feel much better equipped now. I’ve been dying for a good Boston Shaker as the 3 piece one we have tends to leak out the sides during heavy shaking. The Muddler has also a long time coming (helps immensely for Juleps and Mojitos).
So I can’t talk about all this cool stuff without bringing up where I got everything. While I can’t quite remember how I found it, a little Youtube show called “Common Man Cocktails” now has me rather hooked. The owner and his wife bought a small bar accessory shop at the beginning of this year and uses the videos as a promotional tool. The corresponding online shop http://awesomedrinks.com/ sells pretty much everything you need except the alcohol.
I am super excited to try these items out. Mostly though I love the petite cocktail glasses as they have a much more ergonomic design than the traditional stemmed variety, prone to tipping and spilling.
Also before I forget the monthly promotional show of my own is now available on the new “Show” page in the upper navigation. Check out the “Liquid Christmas” shot. The recipe has been added to the menu as well.
