A cocktail stirrer is an important tool used in the art of mixing drinks. The rule is to use it when the mixer is non-carbonated to combine the ingredients together. Stirrers are not used with carbonated mixers as the bubbles will do the mixing and excess stirring will make them go flat.
Cocktail stirrers can be found in a multitude of colors, shapes, and themes that can be helpful in enhancing the concept of the drink. For example, a pink flamingo stirrer will add a playful bit of camp to a tropical cocktail. Food items are also used as stirrers- the most famous example being the celery stick in a Blood Mary. Depending on the flavors in the drink, other food items that can be used are cinnamon sticks, sugar cane stalks, or even candy.
