Adam from the Boston Shaker store and a designer are trying to raise funds to produce food-safe rugged swizzle sticks for mixing (not the decorative kind) as a replacement for the authentic but fragile and expensive real ones from Martinique and elsewhere in the Caribbean. Funding the project isn't a one way gift since certain donation grades score you the swizzle stick for what it would cost you to buy it later. For more 4-1-1 see the link below. Deadline for funding this project is May 17th.

I've seen the prototype in The Boston Shaker store and can vouch that Adam is a good guy, dedicated to the craft cocktail. Thanks, Yarm, for sharing.

4 days left -- it's a we're in this together and make the amount, or all money gets refunded and the project put on hold. Also, it's not a donation but a pre-buy.
I am new here can you tell me about this in little more detail.
