Stir with ice and strain. Fill a shaker or Boston or other glass with ice, pour in the ingredients, slide a barspoon down the inside of the "wall" of the shaker or Boston and stir it about 10 times, then pour the drink out through a Hawthorne strainer into another glass, or leave it in the glass and serve (if it was stirred in the glass it was designed to be served in).
