Ask the Internet and one shall receive.

As we get closer and closer to having the best gin available to us, I wanted to ensure that when I address the “shaken vs. stirred” debate, that my shaking technique was appropriate.  Luckily for me, the good folks at Chow have already addressed the issue and have created a YouTube video to help demonstrate.

In the video is A. J. Rathbun, author of the books Good Spirits , Luscious Liqueurs, and several other books on cocktails and spirits. I have several of his books and trust him in what he has to say.
