The art of cocktailing can often feel like magic…or alchemy. But here at Twisted Alchemy, we know that a person is only as good as their tools, or however the saying goes. That is why we created a High Density Stainless Steel Jigger and High Density Stainless Steel Cobbler Tin Shaker with Built-In Strainer to provide you with only the best tools for at-home bartending.
The cocktail shaker, as we know it today, traces its origins back to the early 19th century. Prior to the invention of the shaker, cocktails were often stirred or mixed using spoons or pitchers. However, the need for a more efficient and effective method of blending ingredients led to the development of the early cocktail shaker, which consisted of a base or "can" with a tight-fitting lid, allowing for a secure seal. Bartenders would vigorously shake the shaker to combine the ingredients, creating aeration and blending the flavors together. The early forerunner of our High Density Stainless Steel Cobbler Tin Shaker with Built-In Strainer, gained popularity in the late 19th century and remained a popular choice for home bartenders because of the ease provided by its built-in strainer.
Cocktail shakers are essential for mixing and chilling cocktails. When making a paloma with your favorite Twisted Alchemy Lime Sour Cold Pressed Mixer and 100% Grapefruit Cold Pressed Juice, you want to ensure your ingredients are well-mixed. When making a rockstar martini, you want your Passion Fruit Cold Pressed Juice and vanilla liqueur to be deliciously cold- the cold temperature from the ice in the shaker helps to make this happen.
Cocktail jiggers are essential for accurately portioning and measuring the ingredients for cocktails. The history of cocktail jiggers is closely linked to the development of standardized cocktail recipes. As the craft of mixology evolved, bartenders recognized the importance of precise measurements to achieve the desired flavor profiles and balance in cocktails. Jiggers became essential tools for accurately portioning ingredients and maintaining consistency across different batches of drinks.
Well-made jiggers, such as Twisted Alchemy’s High Density Stainless Steel Jigger have a two-side design that allows for multiple relevant measurements to be specified. Twisted Alchemy’s High Density Stainless Steel Jigger has a 1 and 2 oz measurement on the larger side, for big pours of Three Citrus Cold Pressed Mixer or 100% Blood Orange Cold Pressed Juice, and 0.5 oz and 0.75 oz measurements on the other, for smaller pours of Rich Simple Syrup or 100% Eureka Lemon Cold Pressed Juice. Jiggers are essential for maintaining consistency and precision in cocktail recipes, ensuring that each drink is prepared with the correct proportions of ingredients.
At Twisted Alchemy, we understand the delicate balance of sweet and tart or sour and tangy that mixologists work hard to strike. That is why we created high-quality versions of the tools that are essential for facilitating the art of crafting delicious and well-balanced cocktails. Next time you prepare a cocktail with your favorite Twisted Alchemy cold-pressed juices, make sure you are using our High Density Stainless Steel Jigger and High Density Stainless Steel Cobbler Tin Shaker with Built-In Strainer to ensure that cocktail is well-mixed, balanced, and delicious.
