Recently I saw someone struggling with a too-short muddler in a too-tall jug.
As I see it, there are two potential solutions to such a problem:
- Select a smaller jug. A quick and easy answer would be to select a different jug from the cupboard. The obvious drawback would be not creating enough of the refreshment to go around.
- Create a longer muddler. Go to the workshop, select a suitable piece of wood, use table saw to cut the blank, use lathe to turn the shape, use a carving tool to shape a mertail for a handle, use a different carving tool to make ridges in the business end for muddling, use various grades of sandpaper to smooth the surface, use camera to take photos, find a padded envelop to mail it to the afore-mentioned drinks mixer, use postal system to mail out the birthday present – hopefully in time.
What would you do?
