Hawthorne Strainer

Once you've picked your Tito's cocktail and poured the ingredients, give it a shake in a shaker, grab your handy Hawthorne strainer, and place it on top of the shaker. Then, pour the liquid through the strainer into a glass.

While you pour, make sure to hold the strainer and shaker in place, that way only the liquid makes it into your glass!

Free Pour

If you don't have a measuring cup or jigger handy, that's OK. Skip the extra step of measuring and count the servings with your fingers—one finger is a single, and two fingers is a double.
