What tools do I need to make the Fall Cocktail?
To make this cocktail you will need the following tools:
- A cocktail shaker
- A strainer for pouring the drink without the ice.
- Cocktail Muddler
Don’t have the tools you need?
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, a large mason jar works just as well in a pinch.
Use the mason jar lid or a plate to strain the drink if you don’t own a strainer.
If you don’t have a muddler, you can get by with the wrong end of a wooden spoon but a muddler does make things much easier and they are pretty inexpensive.
I did use a cocktail jigger to measure out the ingredients but you could also use a shot glass.
