Martini Glass Cocktail Stirrers Or Cocktail Picks - Glass Cocktail Stirrers

Everybody who loves martinis understands how important it is to have something to put your olives on while your drinking. It is actually a pet peeve of mine when a bartender does not put a pick or stirrer into my glass with garnishes. Fishing for your olive or having to wait until the end of your cocktail is never fun. I do not have enough patience to wait til the end. Especially if it is something I love as much as olives.

Do You Shake Your Cocktail Or Stir It - How Do You Serve A Cocktail - Cocktail Stirrers

James bond likes his martinis shaken. Marilyn Monroe preferred hers stirred- with a fancy cocktail pick. The way people prefer to have their drinks are often small tells into their character as well. Bold and dashing, when Mr. Bond orders his martini, it implies he will not be spending much time with his drink. When it is served, he often replies perfect, and then proceeds to taste it. That implies that he will not be needing anything else and would let you know if he did. Marilyn on the other hand, orders her drink stirred, and she prefers to have a stir stick with her cocktails and garnishes. This often implies a longer and more meaningful visit. She would swizzle her stick and savor her garnishes in her cocktail. Big differences in personalities and males compared to females.

These are plastic stirrers rather than glass but I wanted to present the option because they are popular for frilly cocktails or poolside cocktails.
