Muddling mint properly is an essential part of making a great mojito. Mint must be gently caressed. You don’t want to muddle your mint to a pulp. Shredding mint just releases an unpleasant bitter taste, and gets caught in a straw and your teeth. All that’s needed is to lightly press the muddler down and twist a few times to release the flavorful oils.
Whip It Good
The whip shake is a technique used for cocktails served over crushed ice. Add only a few pieces of ice into a shaker. Gently shake just long enough to melt the ice and blend the ingredients. The mixture won’t be extremely cold or diluted, but that’ll be taken care of by ice in the glass. This shaking approach also ensures the ice doesn’t pulverize the mint.
A muddler is an important tool to build a delicious mojito. Contrary to popular belief, a stainless steel muddler is better for the job than a wood one. I know, I know wooden muddlers are beautiful works of art. But, wood can chip. The coating will eventually peel, and varnish isn’t an ingredient I’m looking to add to my mojito.
My favorite Stainless Steel Cocktail Muddler is by TripleLife. A dual sided muddler that features a flat bottom (ideal for mojitos) plus a small spiked knobby side (perfect for fruit). The stainless steel design makes it dishwasher safe and petri dish free. This is the only drink muddler you’ll need!
A jigger is a small tool used to measure ingredients fast and make consistently delish cocktails. An absolutely necessary tool in a home bartender’s kit. The OXO Steel Double Jigger is my favorite. An all-in-one stainless steel dual sided jigger etched with six different measurements. Makes getting the perfect pour in your cocktail super easy every time!
A handheld citrus press is the most practical option for fresh squeezed lime juice for mojitos at home. If you’re throwing a gathering by all means break out the electric juicer. Just like with the wooden muddler, don’t buy a handheld coated in enamel, as the paint will eventually peel away.
For convenience, I keep on hand a bottle of Nellie & Joes Key West Lime Juice. Fresh is always better of course, but their lime juice works in a pinch.
A cone strainer is used as a second straining method to ensure a cocktail is free of debris like ice, herbs or fruit. Often referred to in cocktail recipes as double straining. In this instance, I double strain to make sure the finished mojito is free of muddled mint.
Like almost any bar tool I suggest, stainless steel is the best. You can use a kitchen sieve, but specific cocktail cone strainers are nice. They are designed to hold one full cocktail in the cone, and the V shape directs your drink right into the glass.Print
