As a mixologist with over 15 years of experience this mixing glass is by far the best I’ve ever used. The weight is perfect for mixing cocktails and it’s very durable without being bulky. The Hawthorne strainer nestled perfectly to the lip of the glass and the rounded interior base allows the bar spoon to glide along the inside effortlessly. Look no further, this is the only mixing glass you’ll ever need. Yes, you can find cheaper mixing glass that “look” as good as this one…….but “cheaper” is exactly what you’ll get. I would love to see A Bar Above take this mixing glass and make it even larger for doing large batch cocktails.
