Cocktail Muddler Reviews
A cocktail muddler is an important bar tool to have on hand if you make a lot of mixed drinks or work as a bartender. If you’ve never heard of a muddler before, they are the baseball shaped tools that are about 5-7 inches long, with a flattened end, sometimes with small teeth, that are used to crush and mix certain ingredients together in the bottom of a drink glass. The purpose of muddling is to bring out the flavors of certain herbs before adding the liquid part of the drink. Not all drinks will need the muddler but they are definitely handy to have around if you want to make outstanding mixed drinks at your next dinner party or gathering. They used to be mostly made of wood, but the modern designs include stainless steel and even plastic. Avoid any muddlers with a coating or lacquer on them, as this can be toxic.
