Cocktail Tools – Oxo Mini Measuring Cup

Posted by Reese On June - 24 - 2008

Oxo Mini Measuring CupThe Oxo Mini Measuring Cup may not look it on the surface but it is in fact the best jigger you will ever use.  Making cocktails well and consistently requires accurate measuring all the time, every time.  Traditional jiggers are great for measuring the amounts they’re designed for.  However, when you have a 1 1/2 oz jigger and you want to measure 3/4 oz things can become complicated.

Enter the Oxo Mini Measuring Cup.  I was discovered this gem watching an episode of The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess (Link at right) and have been a convert since.  This jigger, as I’ll call it, has easy to read measurements running both up the side and up a diagonal plate inside the cup itself.  This allows you to pour from the top and read the amount as you pour.  The cups are noted in both metric measurements and standard units (measured in 1/2 oz increments).  Finally, the best part of the Oxo Mini Measuring Cups are their price.  At $9.99 for 3 from Amazon the price can’t be beat.
