All professional bartenders know when it is appropriate to stir a cocktail instead of shaking it and properly stirring a cocktail is vitally important in the art of craft bartending. The shaking of a cocktail breaks up the ice which causes it to melt faster, while stirring a cocktail preserves the drinks integrity for longer. For some specific drinks, usually those including bourbon or whiskey, it's important to release the flavor of the drink and also chill the liquid without watering it down.
This particular bar spoon brings a higher level of class with its elegantly crafted Indian rosewood handle. The stem is extra long, measuring 40cm in length, and is straight allowing for a smoother stir. This rosewood bar spoon is a great addition to any bar and a much used tool by master mixologists.
