New tool, cheap!

Posted by TraderTiki on September 10th, 2007 — Posted in Bilge

While at the local Goodwill yesterday, I was digging through the utensil bin and found this little nifty number. It reminded me a bit of the bonzer jiggers from The Cocktail Spirit: Tools/Caipirinha video, so I decided to grab it. Then, when messing around with it a bit, I found the handle also contains a corkscrew. So handy, and built like a tank, I think this number will be kept around in the display bin.  It’s a wee rusty, but that should clean off… and then be cleaned, and cleaned, and cleaned.  Can’t having cleaning products in the drinks.

My measuring tool of choice for the past few years has been, just like in the video above, the OXO Good Grips 1061863 Mini Angled Measuring Cup 3-pack. They come in a 3 pack, clean easily, and are easily visible, with multiple measurements. I like them, but, to each their own.

I’ve got one of those in my liquor cabinet, never thought to twist the handle to reveal a corkscrew. But that becomes is such an obvious excuse for the shape of the jigger and the solid connection between it and the handle. As soon as I get home this evening I’ll have to examine mine.
