To muddle, you just break up the cardamom pods and pear in the bottom of the shaker. You can use a muddler for this, which is a wooden or metal tool with a flat end good for mashing fruits and spices, or you can use the back of a spoon.
Double-straining is typically done with drinks that are muddled or include small bits of spices or other ingredients. Just strain the drink as normal using a Hawthorne or Julep strainer but also hold a small wire strainer over the glass to catch any stray seeds, pulp or other solids.
Two concepts in this otherwise delicious recipe leave me confused. First, how do I "muddle" the pear and cardamom. Second, how does one double strain a drink?
