Hawthorne Strainer

Glossary of Terms

A hawthorne strainer (sometimes spelt hawthorn), is a handheld metal cocktail strainer. It features a spring coil around the edge and perforated holes in the middle to filter out larger chunks of ice and fruit pulp from a shaken cocktail. A hawthorne strainer is designed to fit snugly over the top of a 16oz cocktail tin and features prongs or ears to provide stability.
