Mix Like a Pro: Expert Tips for Crafting Perfect Cocktails at Home 

A cocktail is shaken to chill it down and to blend the ingredients. This is the most typical type of shaker that you could find in a home goods store or have at home.

The Boston shaker, which consists of two tins that nest together after being firmly pressed together, may be more familiar to you. Just as the cobbler shaker, it's all about mixing and chilling.

Parisian shakers are a compromise between Boston and cobbler shakers. Like the Boston shaker, it doesn't have a strainer, so you need a Hawthorne or cone strainer to strain drinks.

When working with aquafaba, or egg whites, dry shaking is especially crucial. Because of the aeration produced by shaking without ice, the foam produced is thicker.

To create a muddled cocktail, fill an empty glass with ingredients (such as fruit, fresh herbs, or a sugar cube and bitters) and muddle with a muddler to extract the flavors.

Instead of shaking, some cocktails require stirring to avoid diluting spirits or other delicate ingredients. Soda and sparkling wine are also stirred. 

The most well-known cocktail that nobody knows about is probably the highball. In what way? Consider all of your straightforward spirit and fizzy drink cocktails.

You want to add those fizzy bubbles just right, whether you're making an Aperol spritz, topping off your French 75, or mixing up a highball.

It is not necessary to tilt a highball glass to such an extreme degree if you are adding carbonation to it. If the glass is upright, move it just a tiny bit to the side or down the side.

Mix drinks with thick components, like ice cream, to create a texture akin to a milkshake. Blend fruity frozen cocktails until the ice is completely crushed.
