A Bar Spoon is a specialised long-handled spoon used in bartending for various purposes. It typically has a twisted handle and a flat, disc-like end.
Bar Spoons are a versatile tool in cocktail making and are often used for the following purposes:
- Stirring: Bar Spoons are primarily used for gently stirring cocktails in a mixing glass. The twisted handle and long design allow for precise stirring and mixing of ingredients without excessive agitation, which can dilute or change the texture of the drink.
- Layering: Bartenders use Bar Spoons to create layered cocktails, such as a Black and Tan or a Pousse-Café. The flat end of the spoon is placed on top of the liquid, and the subsequent ingredient is carefully poured over it to create distinct layers.
- Measuring: Some Cocktail Spoons have built-in measurement markings on the handle, often in increments like teaspoons and tablespoons, making them a convenient tool for measuring ingredients when preparing cocktails.
- Muddling: While not their primary purpose, Bar Spoons with flat ends can also be used for light muddling of ingredients like herbs, sugar cubes, or fruit at the bottom of a glass.
