I recently had the opportunity to review the BTipsy Cocktail Muddler. Muddlers are most commonly known to be used for mashing mint leaves at the bottom of a glass to release the flavor. The most popular beverages that require the use of a muddler would be a Mojito and a Mint Julep. Muddling means to combine ingredients by crushing or mashing them at the bottom of a glass, before most of the liquid ingredients are added. The BTipsy Muddler is made out of the strongest material available and will not break when muddling. This bar tool muddler will not peel or rust and is easy to clean! Once finished using the BTipsy Muddler, it’s very easy to clean it by hand or just placing it inside the dishwasher since this Cocktail Muddler is DISHWASHER SAFE.

I use a muddler, but I have never actually used one for either a Mojito or a Mint Julep. In fact, I can’t even recall using mine for cocktails at all. Here are the various ways I use my muddler:
Fitness Water – I was introduced to this idea from my Pilates studio. They always have a pitcher of water infused with fresh herbs and fruit. The most common blend I make is lemon and parsley. First I muddle a few sprigs of parsley, then add some thin slices of lemon, chopped. I muddle them together, then fill the glass with water. I let it sit while I exercise, then drink it post workout.
Honey-Basil Iced Tea – I often sip green tea throughout the day. One thing I enjoy is muddling fresh basil with a drizzle of raw honey. Then I fill the glass with cold brewed green tea. Its so refreshing and it reminds me a little of Starbucks Iced Green Tea, which is one of my favorites!
Minted Lemonade – Muddle some fresh mint leaves and add them to some lemonade or limeade, with a couple of slices of lemons or limes.
Other uses for a BTipsy Muddler:
- Muddle Fresh Berries in your water, tea or lemonade for added flavor.
- Mashing Avocado
- Crushing Garlic
- Muddle Fresh Oregano, Garlic and Olive Oil to top your garlic bread.
- Muddling Ginger & Lemon for this Sinus Blaster Home Remedy
- Crush Peppercorns when creating a dry rub
- Making a Poultice
- Crush Flax Seeds when adding to food
- Crush Fennel Seeds & add to hot water to create a soothing tea for an upset stomach
