Here'sways to use a cocktail jigger

A jigger is a common bar essential that acts as a cocktail measuring cup. Jiggers are dual-sided and help bartenders cut down on overpouring and remain consistent when crafting cocktails. They have different capacities on each end and range from 0.5 to 2.5 ounces. One of their main advantages is that jiggers are dual-sided and allow bartenders to quickly mix drinks while using both sides of the jigger.

Increment markers on the jigger do not make it any better, either, especially if you are using a metal jigger that you cannot see from outside. Reading from the top can be tricky too. So, practice is everything in measuring using a jigger.

How to use a cocktail jigger
Filling a cocktail jigger seems like a simple enough task on the surface, but there are some finer points to remember to improve your speed and accuracy. Before you begin we recommend that you equip your liquor bottles with a free flow bottle pourer for added accuracy and to minimize spills when pouring.

    Use two fingers to hold your jigger, either your thumb and index finger or your index and middle fingers with your palm facing upwards. This allows you to empty your jigger with a simple turn of your wrist once it’s filled.
    Hold the jigger near the rim of the glass you are going to be emptying it into. This saves time and eliminates the chance of spilling liquid while moving the jigger near the glass. You don't want to fill the jigger over your mixing glass or shaker because any spillage would go into your drink, which will throw off your recipe.
    How you hold the bottle you are pouring will depend on if it has a speed pourer or not. Hold bottles with speed pourers at the neck to be able to stop pouring quickly while bottles without pourers should be held in the middle.
    Be sure to fill your jigger completely to the top if you need the maximum amount of liquid it can hold.
    Inexperienced mixologists can practice filling and emptying their jigger to get more comfortable with the process by using an empty liquor bottle filled with water.

How Many Ounces Are in a Jigger?
Typically, the larger end of the jigger is 1.5 ounces and the smaller end is 0.75 ounces. In most cases when people refer to a “jigger” or a “jigger shot” they are referring to the standard jigger size of 1.5 ounces. The smaller end of the jigger is known as a pony shot.
