Cocktail Science in General: Part 1 of 2 »

My friend Jeremy pointed to this excellent breakdown on why you should shake your cocktails instead of stirring them.

This also lead me to read a bit more about "bruising" gin and from what I've heard, that concept appears to have been debunked a while back. The gin isn't bruised, though if you actually have juniper berries in the drink, they would be bruised when shaken.
