In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique. Most home bartenders tend to just throw the ingredients together and serve the drink and in a lot of commercial establishments they do the same thing. The way a drink is prepared can make a big difference in how it tastes and in the atmosphere created.

Chilling a Glass
Always chill glasses before filling them. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this. First is to simply put them in the fridge or a freezer a couple of hours ahead of time. If you forget however you can fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice for a few minutes. Make sure to empty the ice before preparing the drink.

Frosting a Glass

Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully.
