Cranberry Crush Holiday Cocktail 

I was asked to do a review by Rizzi at Arctic Chill,  I jumped at the chance to see if the Arctic Chill Muddler  would be a helpful tool for muddling.

My latest passion for making hand-crafted cocktails with fresh ingredients has led me to search for the best equipment and tools to help create quality cocktails. I’ve been testing recipes for an upcoming project. There has been a renewed interested in creating hand-crafted cocktails all around the country. The professionals know the best way to impart flavors from all of the ingredients is to muddle or crush the fresh fruit,herbs and spices to release the essence and juices before mixing the cocktail.

Product Name: Muddler
RRP: $13.95
Material: Stainless steel grip with a nylon head

It is easy to hold and control as the grooved head crushes the cocktail ingredients. The lime wedges, fresh mint leaves and cranberries were crushed with no problem or much effort or time and the cocktail was bursting with all of the flavors from the fruit and berries!

I really enjoyed the cocktails that I made with the muddler. The ingredients were crushed just right for the cocktails and you could taste the fresh flavors released from the ingredients. My goal is to create quality hand-crafted cocktails and this muddler will help me do just that.

I see many cocktails being made in my future and plan to put the muddler to use this holiday season and beyond for my project. The best part that it has a lifetime guarantee and they replace it if you happen to wear it out!

Enjoy this refreshing cocktail!

CHEERS  to the season and A TOAST to the New Year!
