What tools do I need to make the Fall Cocktail?

To make this cocktail you will need the following tools:

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.
