The Porthole – My beautiful new cocktail infusion vessel
Using the Porthole is ridiculously easy. After lying it flat on a surface, the round glass panels on each side can be removed with the help of a hex key (which comes with the thing), allowing you to fill the vessel with the ingredients you’d like to use for infusing. Propping it up, you can then pour the liquid you’d like to infuse through the narrow spout with the help of a funnel. A set of detachable stainless steel filters of different densities lets you control the amount of residue you like in your drink. Beyond that, your artistic and alcoholic ambitions are limited only by the circular shape of the Porthole and your imagination.
