Cuba Libre Cocktail 9 Aug 2012

@ Enrique the shaking adds a decent bit of water to the drink.  If you look at how much cocktail is poured on ice by Dave vs. his friend you can really see that Dave’s seems to be taller.  Now maybe the ice was taking up more room or Dave had large original pours of booze in his mixing glass, but I am guessing it was probably because he gave his cocktail a harder shake and in doing so added more water to the mix.  More water might sound like a bad thing, but personally I have found I really like it.  The little bit of extra water just means more of a drink to enjoy plus when you give them a good shake the drink gets colder.
