Stirred And Shaken Cocktail Set Details

Jigger Bartender Tool

A “free pour” refers to the style of pouring spirits or ingredients directly into a glass (mixing or otherwise). When free pouring it is difficult to achieve consistency for three reasons:

  • Various liquid drink ingredients have different levels of viscosity that impact the rate at which these travel through a pour spout and into the drink.
  • The person making the drinks is not typically making the same cocktails over and over again with the same ingredients allowing for the practice necessary to achieve the same results.
  • Cocktails typically have smaller amounts of multiple ingredients making free pouring accurately more difficult.

To help ensure drinks are made consistently tasty these need to be measured by volume. Measuring also allows you to more efficiently create new recipes or improve on existing ones.

The tool used often in cooking to properly measure ingredients would be measuring spoons or cups, and the cocktail equivalent tool is a measured jigger. A measured jigger is a mission critical tool for a cocktail starter set.

We selected the Barfly M37005 as our jigger of choice to help make the best bartender kit because of these benefits:

  • It has interior markings to accurately measure incremental amounts of 1⁄4, 1⁄2, 3⁄4, 1 1⁄2 oz.
  • It is made of stainless steel for extreme durability and easy cleaning.
  • It has an elongated design to support more accurate measurements and smooth pouring.
  • Its satin finish to maintain a great appearance with long term daily use.

Julep Strainers For Mixology Bartender Kit

The julep strainer was originally crafted in the mid 1800s to hold back the crushed ice while enjoying a classic mint julep cocktail in a Julep tin cup.

We selected the julep strainer as the preferred choice of strainer for our curated stirred cocktail tool set because it fits nicely in a mixing glass, holding back the ice as its tiny holes allow the liquid to pass through evenly and quickly to help avoid air bubbles to maintain that silky texture.

Hawthorne Strainer For Bartender Tool Kit

The Hawthorne strainer goes back to the year 1892, when a patent was issued to its inventor, William Wright, and Dennis P. Sullivan, who owned Boston’s Hawthorne Café.

Our hawthorne strainer features bilateral slots that can direct the flow of liquid into two streams allowing you to make two drinks at once. It also features a vertical tab that allows you to adjust the flow of the liquid as you pour.

This tool is a necessity for a home bartender kit.

Fine Mesh Strainer For Cocktail Bar Kit

To maintain a silky smooth mouth feel a shaken cocktail requires a two stage straining process to eliminate small chips of ice, and any other tiny particles from ingredients such as muddled fruit and herbs. We include a stainless steel fine mesh strainer to eliminate these smaller particles.

Another benefit of the fine mesh strainer is that it helps to aerate the head of the cocktail more when used in combination with the hawthorne strainer.

Bar Spoon For Bar Mixology Set

A great bar spoon allows you to stir quickly and smoothly without adding air bubbles to the drink to ensure a silky smooth mouthfeel.

Our long-handled Japanese-style barspoon was selected as the preferred choice to help make the best bar tools set because of these benefits:

  • Its extra long length facilitates smoother stirring than conventional shorter bar spoons.
  • The tightly spiraled handle allows the spoon to be kept in a consistent place in the hand while stirring and is comfortable.
  • It has a standard 5 ml (1 teaspoon) bowl size.
  • The teardrop-shaped weight on the end offers a great counterbalance for smooth and fast stirring.
  • Made of a single piece of stainless steel for superior durability and sanitation.

Bartender Shaker For Your Drink Mixing Set

A good quality shaker is a critical piece of equipment for a cocktail mixer set. The 18 and 28 oz weighted stainless steel shaker tins were selected as the preferred choice to help make the best mixology set for these benefits:

  • All metal mixology shaker with great thermal conductivity to chill drinks fast.
  • Forms an airtight seal when the two tins are pressed together, so liquid does not escape while shaking.
  • The pliable nature of stainless steel makes it easy to separate the two tins when ready to pour the drink making it great for speed.
  • The bartender cocktail shaker is made of stainless steel for superior durability and sanitation.

mixing glass

Mixing Glass For The Best Bartender Kit

For stirred drinks the vessel which it is created in has a large impact on the finished cocktail.

We selected a Japanese-style mixing glass as a preferred choice to help make the best cocktail set because of these benefits:

  • It has a spout which makes pouring drinks easy.
  • Weight of the glass facilitates stability while stirring.
  • It has a stunning cut glass design with exceptional clarity to showcase the drink being crafted.
  • Easy cleaning and dishwasher safe.
  • Once chilled glass retains its temperature well.

Glass is a great insulator allowing it to retain its cold temperature well, however because of this attribute it takes a long time to get cold. For this reason you must always pre-chill your mixing glasses in the freezer or with ice and water before use.
