Is this muddler Bad Ass? It most certainly is. Solid at 14 ounces and with good heft it will make short work of anything you need to muddle. The muddler is made from food-grade plastic so you don’t have to worry about bits of wood or varnish getting in your drinks (tangent–who decided it was a good idea to VARNISH muddlers?). It doesn’t retain smells and is easily cleaned. Unless you lose it this thing should last you a lifetime. Heck it’s heavy enough that you could use as a weapon! Perfect for use at home for the recreational bartender or in a restaurant. Give this Muddler as a gift to any bartender and they will forever be in your debt, a great gift for under $20.
