A jigger or measure is a bartending tool used to measure liqueur or Spirits, for pouring into a cocktail shaker. It is named for the unit of liquid it typically measures, a jigger or shot, which measures 1.5 US fluid ounces (44 ml).

A traditional jigger is made from stainless steel and features two unequally-sized cones in opposition, forming an hourglass shape. Typically, one cone measures a regulation single shot, and the other some fraction (typically 1/2, 1/3 or 2/3) or multiple (typically x1.5 or x2) – with the actual sizes depending on local laws and customs.
