Minimizing the number of accoutrements needed to make pro-style cocktails and mocktails, this streamlined and extraordinarily efficient Ultimate Bar Tool from Microplane allows bartenders and party hosts to muddle, stir, cut, score, strain, and create garnishing twists and peels from citrus fruit with one easy and fun to use tool. Specially designed onto the bottom end of the tool, and safely covered with a removable clear cap is a sharp edge peeler blade to easily and smoothly create flavorful strips of citrus peel for flaming garnishes or to add flavor to a classic Manhattan, and other cocktails.
The cleverly designed, upper portion of the tool, which is durably constructed in stainless steel, offers 6 built-in beverage-making features. The dual-purpose clear protective cover is serrated at the tip to mash and blend ingredients, such as fresh mint leaves, sugar and lime juice for authentic mojitos. At the top end, a middle hole is purposely designed to facilitate stirring to help combine ingredients, chill and dilute for perfectly balanced drinks. Next to the stirrer is a small, sharp knife blade to conveniently trim herbs, slice citrus fruit paper-thin, and prep other ingredients. Below the knife blade, the Ultimate Bar Tool includes a razor-sharp scorer to pierce through the tough skin of limes, lemons and other citrus fruits before peeling. Below the knife blade and scorer is an equally sharp channel knife (twist tool) to transform citrus peel into elegant garnishing twists. A well-designed integrated strainer that fits across both a standard size tumbler and a shaker, and helps prevent muddled bits of fruit or ice from falling into serving glasses, is located on the opposite side of the tool.
