    Even the British Medical Journal got in on this debate, saying a shaken martini may be a little healthier because of its increased antioxidant properties. 'Course, if you have to worry about that you probably shouldn't drink. I'm of the school that you do what you, and your guests, like best.

    I was taught to stir clear ingredients and shake cloudy ingredients. For instance apple cider, a juice, should be stirred. According to the rule in this article it should be shaken. I think I like my rule of thumb better.
