Expert Tips

  • What does muddle mean? When mixing cocktails, herbs and/or fruit are often mashed or ground--muddled--in the bottom of a glass before adding the liquid ingredients to intensify their flavors. You can muddle with a spoon or a pestle-like tool called a muddler.
  • Nonalcoholic Version: Omit gin. Increase ginger ale to 2/3 cup.
