2. Prepare Glass 

Start by chilling a martini glass. You can do this by filling it with ice water and letting it sit while you prepare the cocktail. Chilling the glass helps keep the cocktail cold.

5. Shake 

Secure the lid of the cocktail shaker tightly and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This helps to chill the ingredients and properly mix them together.

6. Strain Into Glass 

Discard the ice water from the martini glass and strain the contents of the shaker into the chilled glass. You can use a Hawthorne strainer or a fine mesh strainer to remove any ice shards or fruit pulp.
