If you’ve ever set foot in a bar, you’ve likely seen many jiggers. These small but mighty tools are practically an extension of a bartender’s hand; markings within both sides of the jigger denote measurements ranging from half an ounce to two and a half ounces, allowing for ultimate precision pours.
