Packaging & Presentation of the Bru Joy Cocktail Muddler

The Bru Joy cocktail muddler arrived in a slim, colorful box, clearly labeled.

Following, is the alternate side of the box.  This side is a sub label along with directions on the proper way to muddle.  It also provides tips.

Package side 2

I took the muddler out of the box, and looked at it.  It is 8" long, has a stainless steel handle, and a nylon head (that won't scratch your class while you muddle).

My Personal Experience with the Bru Joy Cocktail Muddler

What's better to use a muddler for than making a mojito!?  Although you can use it for juleps, or pretty much anything where you need to smash together citrus fruit and herbs for the ultimate fresh flavors in your drink.

I decided a mojito sounded good, so I got all my stuff together.

Mojito-making supplies: mint, simple syrup, club soda, rum, lime, and the Bru Joy Cocktail Muddler

Step 1:  I placed the mint sprigs and lime slices in the bottom of the glass along with about a tablespoon of simple syrup.  Do not go crazy with the muddler.  All you want to do is gently bruise the mint leaves.  Muddle these ingredients together for about 30 seconds.  If you do it too long, you will have one bitter mojito, so beware.

Step 2:  I added some crushed ice on top, and poured some cold club soda over the ice.

Step 3:  I added 1.5 ounces of rum on top.

Step 4:  I added a decorative lime wedge on the side, and I was all done!

All finished

Pros of the Bru Joy Cocktail Muddler
  • No more scratched glasses!
  • You won't transfer flavors as you will with a wooden muddler.
  • This muddler has a bit of weight on it, so it makes cocktail-making faster.

Cons of the Bru Joy Cocktail Muddler
  • As it being a simple product, there are no cons of this muddler.


Making drinks is not something everybody can just do.  It takes practice, and some people even go to a class to learn how to do it.  I'm not great at it, but it is pretty fun being able to experiment at home with the proper tools.  I've never owned a muddler before, so being able to make a drink like a mojito in my own kitchen was pretty neat.  This would make an excellent gift for that entertainer in your life, family or friends that like to practice mixology, or even for yourself as a staple in your home!
