Orgeat is a thin syrup made from almonds, sugar, and rose water.

A Hawthorne strainer is used to strain shaken drinks. A fine mesh strainer is used along with a Hawthorne strainer to catch any small particles, such as ice or crushed herbs. For more information regarding straining cocktails, visit Neal Bodenheimer’s “How to Properly Strain a Cocktail” tutorial, located at the bottom of the page.

Shaking a cocktail creates chill, aeration, and dilution. The amount of times a cocktail needs to be shaken depends on its alcohol proof. To learn more about shaking cocktails, visit Neal Bodenheimer’s “How to Properly Shake a Cocktail” tutorial, located at the bottom of the page.
