A single? A double? No matter how you like your Tito’s cocktails, we have a tip that will make free pouring as simple as 1-2-3. Skip the extra step of measuring and count the servings with your fingers—one finger is a single, and two fingers is a double.

Shake versus Stir

The age-old question—to stir or shake? Whether you like your martinis like Bond or prefer a more classic take, remember this rule of thumb to help you master mixology.
