The only jigger you'll ever need
on October 22, 2011
This OXO jigger is the only one I could find that has all the measurements I need for making cocktails:
One side measures 1/4oz, 1/2oz, 1oz
The other has 1/3oz, 3/4oz, 1.5oz
The contruction is solid: nice brushed stainless with two small neat welds between the 2 cups, reinforced by a grippy black silicon band. I have dropped it several times on tiles and not even dingged it.
What makes this jigger the best choice is that instead of marked lines for each measurement, there is an indentation, like smaller cups inside bigger ones: hard to explain without seeing it but basically, even if your near-vision is not great (because you are a well-aged connoisseur or just because you've had that first cocktail!), you will easily be able to dose your ingredients.
I own several jiggers, most of them coming from cocktail shaker sets and this one is the only one that gets used now. Highly recommended for your well-stocked bar.
And to finish with a favourite:
1.5 oz freshly pressed lime juice
1 oz overproof (151) Lemon Hart demerara rum
1 oz Mount Gay Eclipse rum
1.5 oz simple syrup
Dash of Angustura bitters
Shake well over ice. Strain over more fresh ice in a no-frill glass or a small canning jar. Do you need a garnish? Cheers!
