The spiral bar spoon serves another critical function—maintaining the fizz in your cocktails. When making drinks that include carbonated beverages like champagne or soda, vigorous stirring tends to reduce the carbonation in your drink, making for a flat cocktail.
If you pour carbonated liquid straight down the spiraled stem, it flows down the spiral smoothly, reducing the amount of bubbles that get popped on their way to the glass. Try a simple test to see the difference—pour soda straight into a glass without any modifications, and you’ll see it immediately bubble up in the glass, sometimes all the way to the rim. If you tilt the glass at an angle and touch the lip of the soda bottle to the rim as you pour, you’ll see much less agitation. And if you pour soda into a glass down a spiral bar spoon, you’ll notice even fewer bubbles rising to the surface.
