Just Shake or Stir - for all cocktails lovers.
Thank you for visiting Just Shake or Stir. My name is Georgi Petrov, and I started behind the bar back in 1995. For the past 20+ years, I have enjoyed every moment serving cocktails, creating cocktail recipes and taking part in many cocktail competitions.
Working as a bartender and mixologist is terrific, and I enjoyed every minute. After so many years, I decided to create JUST SHAKE OR STIR and share my knowledge with everyone interested in learning the cocktail making craft. In the beginning, it was only Instagram, but after a while, my first website came to life. Like every new beginning, I learned and shaped the concept for Just Shake or Stir as a brand and platform. Two years later, and with over 19000 followers on Instagram, I have a clear view of what the feature for Just Shake or Stir is.
I am happy to have you here, and I love to see you on my Instagram and YouTube Channel. The biggest reward for me will be to know I help you find inspiration to start making cocktails, exploring new spirits and sharing with friends and family. With that said, I’ll be uploading new cocktail recipes building the library constantly. Alongside cocktail recipes, I will share with you homemade ingredients techniques and some advanced mixology methods. The world of Mixology has no limitations, and we will explore many exciting techniques and delicious recipes.
While I explore, share and create new cocktail recipes for the website, I want to invite you to join me on YouTube for weekly Cocktail Videos.
Your truly Georgi Petrov

I'll Take Manhattan is a beautiful riff on the classic Manhattan Cocktail, where the cherry flavour is much more than a garnish, and it is one of those versions that highlight the beauty of the Cherry Heering Liqueur Cocktails.The evolution of the Manhattan starting back in 1891 with a recipe long forgotten and many variations is hard to pick. In the beginning, there was Ray Whiskey as it was popular in New York. Slowly the Bourbon takes over in this classic Cocktail Recipe.However, when you try Dry Manhattan, Perfect Manhattan and Sweet Manhattan, you may decide to explore all of them. So let me help you start with this cocktail recipe first.
THE S.O.S (Splash of Summer) is a perfect easy to make cocktail for summer days. I have created the cocktail but didn't have a name for it. So, I reach out to my YouTube community to name the cocktail.The winning name is THE S.O.S (Splash of Summer), submitted by Kathy Nelson from California O.C. It is easy to remember, fun and will sit nicely in any cocktail bar menu. A Spiced Rum with banana & raspberries top with Pineapple Juice. Perfect tropical drink.
BAKEWELL TART SOUR is one of the best Amaretto Cocktails to make at home. The original recipe calls for a Cognac, but I swap for a Sherry Cask Brandy, and the result is amazing. Also presenting the new Amaretto from Luxardo. The new Amaretto brings a fresh retro design and a small change in the ABV of the liqueur. If you like Brandy and Amaretto, this recipe is a must-try.
