Mixing it Up: Drink Stirrers and Cocktail Sticks at Dark Roasted Blend

Check out the latest article at Dark Roasted Blend, entitled Mixing it Up: Drink Stirrers and Cocktail Sticks

Cocktails have been around for quite a long time, dating back to at least the early nineteenth century. Flavours were added to mask the harsh taste of some of the unrefined liquor that was consumed back then. During Prohibition in the United States, when some of the liquor was home made or from dubious sources, drinks were often mixed to make them palatable. If you needed something with which to stir your drink or skewer a piece of fruit, you used a cocktail stick. 

Over the years there have been many very creative designs for these implements and this article showcases just a few examples.
