Choosing a Muddler

LNG212 | Jun 30, 200912:03 PM     10

I would like to purchase a muddler, mostly to make mojitos at home (though not exclusively for that). One place we've had mojitos uses a regular wooden pestle-shaped, though taller, muddler. A place where we had tableside margaritas made by muddling fresh berries into the drink used a muddler that had sort of grooves/ridges/feet on it. See these two sites for what I mean ... http://www.mojitocompany.com/home.php... and http://www.barproducts.com/info/muddl... .

Could someone explain to me why the different types? Should I prefer one over another? I know it's a simple tool, but since I've not used one before, I'd like to get it right.

Thanks.
