A question as old as time! Is a fine mesh strainer necessary!? – Well maybe not as old as time, but this question is certainly one for the amateur bartenders amongst us. The age-old answer goes something like this, why would you need a second strainer? Just use the super-easy one that attaches to the cocktail tin or shaker, i.e. a Hawthorne strainer. Right? Right!?
Well no, not exactly. In fact, the fine mesh strainer is designed to complement the primary strainer. To be used with it, not instead of it. Why? Ultimately it is about creating higher quality, smoother cocktails.
