Step 6

Lemon-Lime Juice: Equal parts freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, for adding acidity in a flash.

Step 7

Fresh Lemons, Limes, and Oranges: To make juice, wedges for squeezing or moistening the rim of a glass, or twists of zest for extra citrus aroma.

Step 8

Superfine Sugar: Dissolves easily and makes a nice garnish on the rim of a glass.

Step 9

Fresh Herbs: Basil, mint, and tarragon add complexity, texture, and visual appeal.

Step 10

Purchased Ice: For a big party, it's hard to make enough ice at home. Besides cooling, ice helps blend flavors in the shaker.
