Stirred or Shaken


To shake or not to shake… that is the question.

As a basic rule of thumb, cocktails are to be shaken when they include fruit juice, cream, or egg. Shaking a drink introduces tiny bubbles, which gives it a frothy texture, great for these types of drinks. Yum!

Stirred cocktails are comprised of mostly alcoholic ingredients such as spirits, vermouths, and bitters. These include the famous and ever-popular cocktails such as Manhattans and Martinis. Although Bond might have suggested otherwise, Martinis are to be stirred so as to blend the ingredients rather than mash them together, making for a velvety mouth feel.

So try it for yourself… the Aviation 50/50. Stirred to perfection! Raise your frosted glass and give a cheers to gin and to Bond.
