Against Jiggers

New, 27 comments

Toby Maloney, bartender and 'mixologist' at Ken Friedman's Rusty Knot defends the place's lack of jiggers to an eGullet poster who misses them: "Not every bar needs jiggers. Sometimes they just don't look right. If you are in a regular bar, there is a juke playing Led Zepplin, the bartender is wearing a black Peaches t-shirt and ripped jeans, the jigger comes off as being stingy with the booze. Not a good look. I am instituting a program where the drink is made freepour, then tasted, then if it is out of balance, corrected with fresh lime or lemon or simple." [eG]
