Throw When You’d Like a Slightly Aerated, Spirit-Forward Drink
OK, we know it seems like we’re splitting hairs here, but throwing a cocktail is a technique that fits somewhere between rolling and shaking. It aerates a cocktail more than rolling but less than shaking. It still works for drinks that are normally stirred like a Negroni, but makes the drink slightly lighter in texture without bashing the ingredients to bits by shaking. Honestly, the only way to truly understand the difference is to roll, throw, stir and shake the same drink.
