Shaken Or Stirred?, April 2

This week’s class, Shaken or Stirred!

We’ll discuss the differences between the two methods, and why they’re essential for their respective drinks. We’ll talk about the modern interpretation of a sour (egg white assumed!) and even talk about the vegan variation with aquafaba (chickpea brine). We’ll also give you the drop on why James Bond always ordered his martini shaken.
