Bar Implements


A blunt wooden rod or stick available in various dimensions and styles, used for crushing and/or bruising fresh fruits, herbs and other ingredients in a mixing glass in the manner of a mortar pestle. In some locales, muddling is also performed as an alternative to shaking, blending, or stirring a drink - using a rapid pumping motion to agitate the ice other ingredients in a bar glass, then straining into a cocktail glass. The finest muddlers historically have been produced using unvarnished hardwood.
