To build a cocktail is to mix the ingredients in the glass in which the cocktail is to be served, floating one on top of the other. Hi ball, long fruit juice and carbonated mixed cocktails are typically built using this technique. Where possible a swizzle stick should be put into the drink to mix ingredients after being presented to the customer. Long straws are excellent substitutes when swizzle sticks are unavailable.
