Do you know what the rule of thumb is for when to shake a cocktail, when to stir it, and when to "build" it in the glass?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Keeping in mind that I'm a passionate believer that when you're in your own kitchen you get to take whatever damn artistic license you want with your cocktails, there IS actually a general rule of thumb that can help you to figure out whether a cocktail should be shaken, built, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cocktails that contain only "clear" or like ingredients (spirits, bitters, vermouth, etc, should be stirred. (See why it drives the purists mad when James Bond orders his martini "shaken not stirred?"). This keeps the one from "bruising" the alcohol, but also keeps it free from ice chips, which will continue to dilute the drink after poured as the ice chips melt. It also changes the mouthfeel because tiny little air bubbles are incorporated into the drink when shaken. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A total aside, but my guess is that James Bond doesn't actually enjoy the full taste of martinis, as shaking a cocktail will get it colder, faster, and the colder a drink is the less flavorful it is (I see you ice-in-the-wine people ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cocktails that contain translucent ingredients or ingredients with different compositions/viscosities should be shaken. think any cocktail with fruit juice, egg white, or cream. These cocktails need to be shaken to really mix the different components together for a consistent taste throughout the entire drink. The act of shaking also provides cocktails that contain egg white that beautiful foamy head from the air bubbles that are incorporated while shaking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cocktails that have sparkling ingredients in them should be built in the glass. Think vodka tonic, French 75, etc. If you shake or stir these cocktails it'll force the CO2 out of the cocktail faster and make it taste flat, which nobody wants.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So there you have it! Now go mean mug your neighbor for shaking their Old Fashioned's ;) Venue: @WhiteAvenueStudio⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographer: @VineandLight⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stylist: @WovenbyWhit

¡Gracias por pensar en nosotros @netflixes! El clip adaptado de la película #diecisiete me ha gustado más que un plato de comida humana.

La galería en Artz Pedregal se concibe como un elemento de forma rectangular que parece levitar sobre una gran cuerpo de agua por su acabado espejo. Es un espacio público, continuo y claro que desvanece los limites entre interior y exterior y que busca el contacto directo con la naturaleza permitiendo que el sol, el viento y la lluvia se dejen caer sin ningún obstáculo sobre el parque central..The gallery is designed as a rectangular body that appears to levitate above a large body of water, thanks to its mirror finish. It is a clear and continuous public space that blurs the boundaries between interior and exterior.It further aims to foster direct contact with nature, allowing the sun, wind and rain to fall on the central park area unimpeded..#SMBuilt #ArtzPedregal #MixedUsed #Commercial #Cultural #Offices #Gallery #Art #Architecture #Design #SordoMadaleno

Favourite time of the month - growing moon. Do you have your own way to memorize if the moon is growing or getting smaller? This photo was taken last week when forecast said it’s cloudy.#finland #kuusamo #moonlight #suomi #visitfinland #winter #ruka
