    In addition to chilling the glass I use a double walled glass. Then to make an intense drink not watered down by ice, I freeze a 3.2 oz. Travel bottle in the freezer with the liquor. It stays liquid. Best for Martinis.
    After pouring the drink I top the glass with a silicone rubber lid.

    never spray water into a iced cocktail glass. It doesn't chill a glass nearly as enough as ice alone. Chill a glass with ice alone for best results.

    never handle a chilled glass other than by the stem of glass.n leaves fingere prints and warms the cocktail.
