- TO HULL WITH IT
- Hulling is a great knife technique. It allows you to retain the best of the strawberry while removing the unwanted green. Simply insert a paring knife under the leaves at a 45° angle and rotate the fruit to pop off the top.
- SHAKE & BREAK
- Avoid adding fizzy ingredients, like soda and sparkling wine, to your shaker. These are best poured into your glass as a finisher, just before serving.
- DO GET FRESH
- Frozen fruit and bottled juices will work in a pinch, but your drink will really come to life when using the fresh and natural.
- MUDDLE ON
- It is hard to over-muddle berries, so have at it! When muddling citrus and herbs, however, overdoing it can release unwanted bitter flavors and cause bruising.
