What is a Hawthorn Strainer

Hawthorn strainers are used to strain shaken cocktails. They come in a variety of different styles. However, their main features are going to be preferring holes and a flexible spring coil. The coils are used to adjust to the size of the tin, which means you can own different size shakers and still be able to use the same Hawthorne strainer.

What to look for When Buying a Hawthorn Strainer?

Some of the things you want to look out for when selecting a Hawthorn strainer are:

  1. Tight fit
  2. Hole size
  3. Thumb rest
  4. Security notch

Tight Fit

It’s important to select a strainer that has a large enough coil so that I could fit snugly over most tins, regardless of their size. A Hawthorne strainer should be big enough to fit snugly into just about any cocktail shaker or pint glass. This includes 16-ounce tins, 18-ounce tins, and even 28-ounce tins.

Hole Size

A strainer with large holes will not be very useful, as it will allow ice herbs pulp  and other impurities into the drink. 

Thumb Rest

You will definitely want one with a notch for your thumb so that you can press down on the strainer and provide even more security and stability while you pour.

Security Notch

Some strainers feature notches on the handle that will further secure the strainer to your cocktail shaker.

How to use a Hawthorn Strainer

To use a Hawthorn strainer, place it over your cocktail shaker tin, ensure it has a snug fit, and pour the contents out, allowing the strainer to hold back any ice and other impurities from entering the cocktail.
