What does “Muddling” mean?

Muddling is a bartending technique used to gently crush ingredients, typically herbs, fruits, or spices, to release their flavors and aromas into a cocktail. It involves using a tool called a muddler, which is usually a short, thick rod with a flat end.

When muddling, you place the ingredients in the bottom of a glass or cocktail shaker and then press down on them with the muddler, applying gentle pressure and a twisting motion. This action helps to break down the cell walls of the ingredients, releasing their essential oils and juices.

For the Blackberry lime refresher cocktail, we are muddling together fresh mint leaves and fresh ripe blackberries. These two flavors are a main profile in the drink, muddling helps bring the fresh flavors forward.
