Jiggers come in many sizes, shapes and ultimately colors based on the materials they are made of, which are typically stainless steel, brass or copper. Some of the best types are made of stainless steel or copper. You will certainly always find one in a bartenders kit or toolkit. It’s one of the most important tools a bartender has in their arsenal of gadgets. They are typically hour-glass shaped and sized for precision volume measurements from 1/2 ounce all the way to 2 ounces. Basically a specialized measuring cup for booze and other ingredients.
Most are typically doubled-sided for having one side measure 1/2 ounce and the other an ounce. After measuring out your base spirit ingredient such as vodka, gin, tequila, rum for example, then you would just pour it into your shaker, mixing glass or simply the glass you plan to serve the drink in for your guest. Well seasoned bartenders typically use a free-pour method in which they measure by hand and visual inspection, avoiding the need of a jigger. If you’re making a complicated drink, even a 1/4 ounce difference in ingredients could potentially ruin the drink, so because of that, we have compiled a list below of some of the best jiggers we have seen online.
