Method of mixing:

Cocktails and allied drinks. Excepting those instances where mixing instructions arc given with the recipe, it may be inferred that any one of the following methods can be employed: For instance,some prefer to use a Cocktail shaker. The"Standard"^cktail shaker (for home use) is a nickel or aluminium receptacle specially made for the vigorous shaking up and down of the ingredients. In the absence of a Shaker,a tall miTing glass or a jug may be used. When ice is an ingredient a fork is preferable to a spoon for stirring, as the ice is melted more quickly. There is a"knack" of making a spoon do this, but it is possessed, with few exceptions, only by professional"mixers." A suitable strainer will complete the necessary equipment. As an^^occasional alternative to the miring fork or spoon, a"swizzle-stick" may be used. There are numerous types of"swizrie-sticks"available, most of which your Wine Merchant can procure. The one we are best acquainted with is the Natural West Indian"swizzle-stick," illustrated and des cribed on page 12. Another type is the"Mosser" shown alongside.
