Cocktail Shaker
A COCKTAIL SHAKER is a device used to mix beverages (usually alcoholic ) by shaking. When ice is put in the shaker this allows for a quicker cooling of the drink before serving. A shaken cocktail is made by putting the desired ingredients (typically liquor , fruit juices , syrups , liqueurs and ice cubes ) in the cocktail shaker. Then it is shaken vigorously for around 10 to 18 seconds, depending upon the size and temperature of the ice. There are at least three varieties of cocktail shakers: * The Boston Shaker: A two-piece shaker consisting of a 28 imp fl oz or 800 ml metal bottom and traditionally a 16 imp fl oz or 450 ml glass or plastic mixing glass. The mixing container and bottom are inserted into each other for shaking or used separately for stirring or muddling

Cocktail Strainer
A COCKTAIL STRAINER is a metal bar accessory used to remove ice from a mixed drink as it is poured into the serving glass . A type of sieve , the strainer is placed over the mouth of the glass or shaker in which the beverage was prepared; small holes in the device allow only liquids to pass as the beverage is poured. There are two common types of strainers. The HAWTHORNE STRAINER is a disc (called the "rim") with a handle and two or more stabilizing prongs. A metal spring fixed around the edge of the rim rolls inward to fit inside the glass. The rim of the strainer does not need to touch the rim of the glass, as the spring inside filters out the ice. The JULEP STRAINER is shaped like a bowl with a handle, and will fit tightly into a mixing glass or shaker when inserted at the proper angle

Corkscrew
A CORKSCREW is a tool for drawing corks from wine bottles , beer bottles and other household bottles before the invention of screw caps and Crown corks . In its traditional form, a corkscrew simply consists of a pointed metallic helix (often called the "worm") attached to a handle, which the user screws into the cork and pulls to extract it. Corkscrews are necessary because corks themselves, being small and smooth, are difficult to grip and remove, particularly when inserted fully into an inflexible glass bottle. More recent styles of corkscrew incorporate various systems of levers that further increase the amount of force that can be applied outwards upon the cork, making easier the extraction of difficult corks

Beverage Coaster
A COASTER, DRINK COASTER, BEVERAGE COASTER, or BEERMAT is an item used to rest beverages upon. Coasters protect the surface of a table or any other surface where the user might place a beverage. Public houses usually will have beermats spread out across their tables. They are used not just to protect the surface of the table, but, as they are usually made of paper , they can also be used to absorb condensation dripping along the glass or serve as an ad-hoc notepad. Beermats are often branded with trademarks or alcohol advertising . Beermats are not to be confused with bar mats, rectangular pieces of rubber or absorbent material used to protect the countertop and soak up spilled drinks in a bar or pub.

Beer Tower
A BEER TOWER, also known as PORTABLE BEER TAPS or a GIRAFFE, is a beer dispensing device, usually found in bars and pubs . The idea behind beer towers is that several patrons in a group can serve themselves the amount of beer they want without having to order individually. The device comes in a variety of sizes, most often double to triple the size of standard beer pitchers that hold around 48–60 U.S. fluid ounces (1.4–1.8 L) of beer. It is usually a four-foot-tall plastic cylinder attached to a beer cooling device at the bottom. Some beer towers consist of concentric cylinders; the central one is filled with ice which helps keep cool the external one that actually holds the beer. When filled, it holds a total of 133 U.S. fluid ounces (3.9 L) of beer

Soda Pop
A SOFT DRINK (see terminology for other names) is a drink that typically contains carbonated water , a sweetener , and a natural or artificial flavoring . The sweetener may be sugar , high-fructose corn syrup , fruit juice, sugar substitutes (in the case of diet drinks ), or some combination of these. Soft drinks may also contain caffeine , colorings , preservatives , and other ingredients. Soft drinks are called "soft" in contrast with "hard" alcoholic beverages . Small amounts of alcohol may be present in a soft drink, but the alcohol content must be less than 0.5% of the total volume if the drink is to be considered non-alcoholic. Fruit punch , tea , and other such non-alcoholic beverages are technically soft drinks by this definition but are not generally referred to as such. Soft drinks may be served chilled, over ice cubes or at room temperature. In rare cases, some soft drinks, such as Dr Pepper , and Pepsi can be served warm

Bar Spoon
A BAR SPOON is a long-handled spoon used in bartending for mixing and layering of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic mixed drinks . Its length ensures that it can reach the bottom of the tallest jug or tumbler to mix ingredients directly in the glass . A bar spoon holds about 5 millilitres of liquid (the same as a conventional teaspoon ) or 2.5 ml of liquid (standard size in Europe). Its long handle is similar to an iced tea spoon , but is usually decorative and elegant – some variations mimic large swizzle sticks , with a disc at one end. The shaft is typically thin and threaded so that the fingers can easily grip and rotate the spoon. REFERENCES * ^ Lai, Ann (2005). Bartending 101: The Basics of Mixology, 4th Edition.

Beer Engine
A BEER ENGINE is a device for pumping beer from a cask in a pub 's cellar. The beer engine was invented by John Lofting , a Dutch inventor, merchant and manufacturer who moved from Amsterdam to London in about 1688 and patented a number of inventions including a fire hose and engine for extinguishing fires and a thimble knurling machine. The London Gazette
London Gazette
of 17 March 1691 stated "the patentee hath also projected a very useful engine for starting of beers and other liquors which will deliver from 20 to 30 barrels an hour which are completely fixed with brass joints and screws at reasonable rates." The locksmith and hydraulic engineer Joseph Bramah developed beer pumping further in 1797. The beer engine is normally manually operated, although electrically powered and gas powered pumps are occasionally used; when manually powered, the term handpump is often used to refer to both the pump and the associated handle

Glass Rimmer
A GLASS RIMMER is a bar accessory used to apply salt or sugar to the rim of a glass . It usually consists of one or more shallow plastic or metal discs that the glass is turned upside down into. The discs can be filled with either the rimming salt or sugar, or sometimes something to moisten the rim of the glass such as lime juice . The purpose of rimming a glass can either be for aesthetics or to enhance the flavor of a cocktail . Rimming usually crosses both categories. Adding something to the rim of the glass is very visually appealing and therefore ornamental, but with proper selection it can substantially enhance the flavor of the drink. Some bartenders choose to prepare several rimmed glasses in advance. Pre-rimmed glasses save time on preparation

Nutmeg Grater
A NUTMEG GRATER, or NUTMEG RASP, is a device used to grate a nutmeg seed. Nutmeg
Nutmeg
graters are normally metal, cylindrical or half-cylindrical, the surface perforated with small rasped holes. The nutmeg is passed over the surface to grate. The grater may be combined with a compartment for storing the nutmeg seed between uses. In the late 17th century nutmeg and nutmeg graters became associated with drinking punch , at that time a fashionable alcoholic beverage. Through the 18th century it was the fashion for men to carry nutmeg in a pocket-sized silver container equipped with a grater in order to add freshly grated nutmeg to punch. Nutmeg
Nutmeg
graters are a bartenders' tool, used for adding freshly grated nutmeg to hot toddies , eggnogs , and other warm drinks. Any grater capable of fine grating, such as a microplane , can be used to grate nutmeg. REFERENCES * ^ Nutmeg

Muddling Spoon
A MUDDLING SPOON is a long handled spoon used in bartending . It resembles an iced tea spoon , but typically has a smaller head. Muddling spoons are not the same as muddlers , though both are used to make mixed (typically) alcoholic drinks . Also called a "cocktail mixing spoon", the extra-long handle makes it easy to reach the bottom of tall glasses and pitchers to thoroughly stir in and blend cocktails. The twisted handle assists in building visually attractive “stacked” or layered drinks and shots, known as pousse cafe. Gently pouring alcohol and other liquids over the twist eases them into the glass and, with practice, into their own layer
