Everyone should eat lunch, especially me because breakfast is typically a couple of vitamins, The Wall Street Journal editorials, and two cups of black coffee. By the time both hands on my watch are pointing straight up, my stomach is rumbling. During the week, I have a few spots I frequent, and I eat light—salads with grilled chicken breast or a cup of soup (hold the bread) and a beer. Friday's lunch, however, is different.
There are plenty of how-tos and instructions for cocktail making out there. Heck, between mediocre recipes and articles about how to shake a metal canister back and forth, what else does Punch write about? Anyway, I want to talk about the rarely discussed and scariest of all bar techniques: the knife stir.
