Fine-straining refers to straining the cocktail with both the Hawthorne strainer (attached to the mixing glass) and a mesh or tea strainer held by your non-pouring hand between the shaker and the glass. This technique will catch all of the herb or fruit particles and make for a perfectly clean cocktail.
