Fundamentals of Bartending!

In this post I’m going to introduce some basic equipment that is needed to create a cocktails and the uses of the equipment.

They are as followed:


  • Designed to aid in layering liquid on top of another.


  • A Jigger is used to measure liquid.


  • Shaker comes in different style, such as two piece or three piece. The main purpose of a shaker is to chill the drinks fast in less than 30 second.


  • Shot glass
  • Four and Half oz Glass
  • Rock Glass
  • Tall Glass
  • Martini Glass
  • Brandy Glass
  • Liqueur Glass
  • Wine Glass
  • Champagne Glass
  • Beer mug


  • Ingredient are said to be one of the most important part of the cocktails, certain cocktail require certain brands of alcohol due to the reason that it might not be able to bring out the taste of the cocktail. But in this case I won’t be focusing much on the ingredient.
