This attractive, yet invaluable little bar tool, a luxury pewter double jigger, handcrafted in Italy, is designed to hold ½ oz on one side and 1½ oz (a perfect shot measurement) on the other; hand-scribed lines inside indicate those measurements, allowing you to get your cocktails and mixes perfectly proportioned.
Unless you are a professional bar-worker, and extremely experienced in pouring by sight (methods known as eyeballing or fingers) or counting (known as speed pouring), use a jigger!
Accuracy in mixing will prevent your drinks being spoiled, often by being too strong rather than too weak, as you lose count, or doubt yourself and put another slug in for good measure.
The origin of the jigger is unknown; it appears that the word 'jigger' was an early 19th Century term for an illicit distillery, and around the same period, there is also reference to Irish canal workers in the USA receiving a 'good jigger of whiskey at the day's end' as part of their board and lodging.
A jigger is especially useful if you are creating multi-ingredient drinks which are very popular these days.
This luxury pewter double jigger is the perfect accompaniment for the Cosi Tabellini Cocktail Shaker...
