Matador

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Hidetsugo Ueno chooses from seven different shaking methods when making his cocktails: hard, high-speed, short-pitch, long-stroke, regular two-step, regular three-step or non-step. For matadors he uses the short-pitch shake, which involves the wrist only; it adds air and "whips" the drink.
