Often used but often overlooked – the humble jigger is the quintessential measure for preparing your favorite cocktail but what do you need to look for in the best jiggers? Coming in double-ended egg-cup shapes they typically have a 1 oz and ½ oz capacity gauge or a 1½ oz and ¾ oz measure. European jiggers are metric and differ in volume and you will still find variations in capacity with jiggers in the States when it comes to measures made in ‘shot’ volumes. The best jiggers will bear multiple measurement markings with useful increments but sometimes these don’t include all the useful volumes such as the a quarter ounce. They are typically stainless steel but other metals, finishes and materials are used and some possess design tweaks or innovations to improve the owning and using experience.
