How To Mix Cocktails
A mixed drink is either shaken or stirred to dilute the drink. You can use a shaker or any container with a tight lid. It is important to know how to shake or stir the drink. Each should be done in a circular motion. When shaking, hold the tumbler so that the contents move in a circular motion. For stirred drinks, keep the spoon from touching the glass so that the contents create a vortex that starts the dilution.
