2. Ice Scoops

3. Pourers

4. Corkscrews

A corkscrew is used to remove a cork from a wine bottle without damaging the bottle or spilling any wine. There are two types of corkscrews; winged corkscrew and waiter’s friend which both have a pointed metal helix attached to a handle, which pierces the cork and delivers it when turned vertically. A winged corkscrew has a short quill in between two arms that turn into spiral upon twisting towards the palm of your hand thus removing this cork from its place while a waiter’s friend has an S shaped hook at its end which pulls out the cork from the wine bottle with ease.

5. Jiggers (Measuring Glass)

A jigger or measuring glass is a bartender’s tool used to measure liquor and pour it into glasses, which usually holds between 1 and 2 ounces of liquid with markings on them showing measurements such as “one jigger” or one ounce and a half. Bartenders use these exquisite tools for pouring alcohol in most drinks they serve than just mixing them freehand, thus making each drink taste perfect according to standards set by their establishment.
