Commercial Food Equipment Recommended

Crafting the perfect Old Fashioned drink in a commercial setting requires the right equipment to ensure consistency, quality, and efficiency. Start with a high-quality cocktail shaker and mixing glass to properly blend and chill the ingredients. A commercial-grade ice machine is essential for producing clear, large ice cubes that melt slowly, preserving the drink’s flavor. For precise measurements, use a professional jigger. A muddler is necessary for gently crushing sugar cubes with bitters, releasing their flavors. Lastly, a set of durable, stylish rocks glasses showcases the Old Fashioned beautifully, while garnishes like orange peels and cherries are easily prepared with a sharp paring knife and peeler.
