Tips & Tricks: Shake vs. Stir

To shake or to stir? That is the question that most Tito’s Handmade Vodka drinkers face when crafting a cocktail at home.

It’s pretty simple, actually. When mixing Tito’s with citrus or juice, the rule of thumb is to shake it up, but when you’re crafting a cocktail that’s more liquor forward, just pour over ice and give it a stir.

Keep these two easy tricks in your back pocket (and your bar cart) and you’re on your way to becoming a master mixologist from the comfort of your home. Just don’t forget the garnishes, it’ll help your cocktails dress to impress.

How To Stir

If your cocktail is a crafty concoction of liquor (and Tito’s), just pour it in a glass over ice and give it a stir. It’s as simple as that.

How To Shake

When crafting a cocktail with citrus or fresh juice, give it a shake or two. Build your cocktail in a shaker with ice and shake it a few times to fuse the flavors together. Just don’t shake for too long, or the ice will water down your masterpiece.
