True, most of us learned how to use a spoon by the time we were three years old. But, a bar spoon is slightly different and using a bar spoon correctly can make you look professional with very little time.

The bar spoon has two sides, the flat of the spoon or “measure side” which is usually used for doing small measures (usually around 1 tsp or with our spoon, around 1/4 ounce measure) and the red know “stir side.”

The measure side is great for those with our Home Bartender Starter Kit because the Japanese Double Jigger that is supplied with the kit will measure all the other measurements you will need in your cocktail build.
