Texture plays an important role in experiencing a good cocktail. Shaking a cocktail creates texture in a drink. Straining a shaken cocktail then elevates the texture by removing pips, pulp and smaller ice shards.

Straining a stirred cocktail is as important, removing smaller ice shards which will add extra dilution to a spirit-forward cocktail and potentially throwing off the balance that you are trying to achieve.

What is double straining? When do I fine strain? Check out our Cocktail Strainers 101 for an in-depth look into straining cocktails and find out exactly what you need (or don’t need!).
