A wooden muddler

A muddler is a bartender's tool, used like a pestle to mash—or muddle—fruits, herbs and spices in the bottom of a glass to release their flavor.[1][2]


The tool is shaped like a small baseball bat and must be long enough to touch the bottom of the glass being used.[2] The bottom of a muddler may be textured, toothed, or smooth.[2] Muddlers can be made from plastic, stainless steel, or wood.[1]


Ingredients are muddled in the bottom of a glass before any liquids are added.[2]

Cocktails that require the use of a muddler include:
