How to Use : ( Source : wikihow )
step 1 : Obtain some measured jiggers of different common sizes and a liquor bottle with a pour spout. The pour spout must fit very snugly in the liquor bottle and form an airtight seal. The jiggers won't be needed soon, but are needed to learn how to pour the right quantities. The liquor bottle should be filled with water unless you are practicing during a party!
step 2 : Grasp the liquor bottle firmly by the the neck with your index finger over the base of the pour spout. It is very important to hold the liquor bottle properly, otherwise you will not be able to control the pour!
step 3: Deftly lift the bottle up and, in one fluid motion, tilt the bottle over and pour into a cup, then tilt the bottle back to vertical and place it back on the table. While the exact technique will vary, this lets you understand how to pour in a controlled manner. You want to begin pouring all at once directly into the cup, then stop pouring all at once, in one fluid motion. The pour should start readily and flow evenly. If the liquid being poured sputters excessively or does not pour readily or evenly, the pour spout may not fit properly in the bottle. Be sure to angle the spout properly while pouring so that the liquor is poured as evenly as possible and downward.
step 4 : Count while pouring into an empty jigger until it is full. This is the secret that enables you to know exactly how much you are pouring into the glass. Therefore, as soon as you begin pouring, keep an even count, then as soon as the jigger is full, and you stop pouring, stop counting. People may count to three or four for a one ounce jigger, but be sure to establish a specific count for a specific amount. Practice this repeatedly with the one ounce jigger, then with the 3/4 ounce jigger, 1 1/2 ounce jigger, and so forth. You will end up counting less for the smaller jiggers and more for the larger jiggers.
step 5 : Free pour into a glass using the counts established in the previous step, then measure how much you poured using the jiggers. This will enable you to see how close you can get to the desired amount while free pouring. Many people can be essentially exact.
NOTE: A great habit as bartender is to always pour with your hand grasping the neck of a bottle (not the body) and your forefinger over the pour spout. The reason: as pourers wear, they sometimes fall out at the most inappropriate times. I’ve witnessed coworkers dump some really expensive booze all over the ground due to failed pourers.
Pourers are cheap insurance. In quantity, they can range in price from a few cents to a dollar or two for the most exotic models (excluding computer-controlled garbage). You can get them just about anywhere from your local supermarket, to Amazon, to commercial restaurant supply outlets. ( from thetruthaboutbartenders).
