Hawthorne Strainer - Copper


The name "Hawthorne Strainer" is well-known in bartending lingo. It's a valuable tool in the bar tool arsenal. When it was originally created, it was intended for straining Julep cocktails around the late 1800s and was in fact originally patented as a ‘julep strainer’, what we would eventually call the "Hawthorne strainer" got its name from its use at the Hawthorne Cafe, in Boston, MA. It never caught on as the true Julep strainer, due to the Julep-style strainer being developed around the same time but it is probably one of the most ubiquitous tools you'll find in a bar.
