I like to play around with different cocktails. I get my recipes from various places including books, online sources, and social media. On the last, I have been following the cocktails subreddit on Reddit.com. While some areas of Reddit can be a social media wasteland, the cocktail section is pretty decent with interesting recipes and nice pictures.
One thing I’ve started noticing is that some people post their recipes in metric measurements. The last time I had to think in metric volume measurements was high school chemistry with Sister Rita and that was a long time ago. Rather than trying to use a conversion tool, I decided to find a metric jigger or, at least, one with both metric and “normal” markings.
I have been using an Oxo stainless steel jigger for years and love it. Checking on Amazon, I found that Oxo makes the OXO Good Grips Mini Angled Measuring Cup which goes up to 2 ounces or approximately 60 ml. For $6.99 I don’t think either you or I could go wrong with it. (Sorry for the poor picture.)
If you like to experiment with cocktails on the weekend, I highly recommend this jigger.
