Description

Hey there, let me tell you about this beast of a mesh strainer I’ve got. You know, the one I whack against my shaker after making a killer cocktail? Yeah, that one. It’s got an ergonomic handle that’s tougher than a two-dollar steak — we’re talking TIG and MIG welded, so it’s not giving up on you. Ever.

Now, as a bartender, I’ve been through my fair share of strainers, but this? This is the last ultra-fine mesh strainer you’ll need. I mean, it’s not just sturdy; it’s ridiculously durable. The thing has got a handle with double welding and a wide collar that’s basically saying, “I dare you to break me.” Spoiler alert: you won’t. It won’t warp, won’t rust, and it’ll keep its shape even when things at the bar get crazier than a bag of cats.

Comfort while you work? Absolutely. The rounded handle fits in your hand like it was made for it. Plus, it’s got this little cut-out so you can hang it up — talk about smart storage!

Let’s talk versatility. You’re not just getting the best fine mesh strainer for cocktails; you’re also getting a champ at straining tea, and it’s even great for kombucha, soups, broths — you name it. Got some pulp or seeds you need to get rid of? This strainer’s got your back.

You’re thinking, “But does it work fast?” Heck yeah, it does. The large size is 10 cm and covers more ground so you can strain quickly and keep the line moving. If you’re working on something smaller, like syrups or just a one-person show, the 8 cm size is your new best friend.

Bottom line: no matter which size you pick, you’re getting the strainer that could probably survive an apocalypse. So go on, get your mix on, and strain with speed and style.

Spec Check:

  • Materials: This bad boy is all high-grade stainless steel 304 with a shiny polished mirror finish.
  • Size Matters:
    • Large Strainer: Total length is 255 mm; mesh is a big ol’ 10 cm in diameter.
    • Small Strainer: Also 255 mm long, but the mesh is a more petite 8 cm across.

Use it, love it, and maybe even pass it down to your grandkids — it’s built to last that long.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Cocktail Hammer is a mixology-centric website that provides an extensive array of resources for home bartenders, professional mixologists, and cocktail enthusiasts. Here are some responses to the most frequently asked queries to help enhance your cocktail crafting skills.

To start home bartending, you'll need a few key tools. A cocktail shaker is essential for mixing drinks, and a jigger will help you measure the ingredients accurately.

A bar spoon is useful for stirring and layering drinks, while a strainer ensures a smooth, sediment-free cocktail.

A muddler is important for crushing herbs or fruit, and a citrus peeler or zester is useful for adding garnishes. Finally, you may want a good-quality knife and chopping board for preparing ingredients.

There are a few key techniques that are critical for home bartending. Shaking is a common technique used to mix, chill and dilute drinks quickly. Stirring is used when you want to maintain the clarity of the drink while still mixing the ingredients. Muddling is used to extract flavors from fresh ingredients like herbs or fruit.

Layering is another technique that involves carefully adding different liquors or mixers so that they sit in separate layers. Finally, garnishing not only makes your cocktail visually appealing but can also enhance its flavor.

Proper storage and maintenance of your liquors and mixers can extend their shelf life and preserve their quality. Unopened bottles of spirits are stable and can be stored for many years. Once opened, they should ideally be consumed within 1-2 years.

Store spirits in a cool, dark place, upright, to prevent the alcohol from breaking down the cork. Liqueurs should be stored similarly, but keep in mind they have a shorter shelf life due to their sugar content. Vermouth and other wine-based aperitifs should be refrigerated after opening and consumed within 1-2 weeks.

Mixers, too, should be refrigerated after opening and used within the recommended timeframe on the label. Fresh ingredients like lemons, limes, and herbs should be bought regularly to ensure they are always fresh when used in your drinks.
