how to stir A COCKTAIL

Stir with ice and strain
Fill a shaker or Boston or other glass with ice, pour in the ingredients, slide a barspoon down the inside of the
 “wall” of the shaker or Boston and stir it about 10 times, then pour the drink out through a Hawthorne strainer
 into another glass, or leave it in the glass and serve (if it was stirred in the glass it was designed to be served in).
Technically, drinks stirred in a Boston should be strained out using a julep strainer, but these
have fallen out of fashion. Stirring a drink with ice dilutes it by around 10%.
