    You are more experienced in making cocktails compared to myself. I’ve read (from a food magazine feature story) that a cocktail must be shaken no longer than 7 seconds ( or less *vigorously shaken*) or else the taste would be unsatisfactory, is that true?

    [I wanted to try for myself first before asking you (or anyone else for that matter) but it’s costly for me to buy the ingredients that I’m sure I’d not always consume immediately. I hope you understand.]

    • LOL so 6 seconds would be too short and 8 seconds too long? The only risk of shaking too long is that if there is ice in the shaker, the drink will be too diluted.

      And what’s the standard for “vigorously shaken”? :-P
